After the Run: Local Favorites

Pepperoni's Gourmet Pizza - Black Mountain This is the best pizza I have ever had, no more chain pizza's or frozen it's a 30 mile trip one way for us, it's well worth the trip....
Blue Ridge Biscuit Company This is what your plate looks like when you eat here!! Staff is great food is amazing!!
Black Mountain Bistro We both had the seafood chowder. Outstanding! Buttery, but not too rich. We highly recommend it, as it's a regular menu item.
My Father's Pizza Check out the local beer from Pisgah brewers here.
Thai Basil Restaurant Tom Yum Soup . . . Should be called Tom Yummy Soup.
The Veranda Cafe Soups are to die for!
