One of the best surprises when I visited Lake Junaluska. We tried BBQ quesadilla, Folkmoot Salad and Mats Special. All the food were very tasty, flavorful and most importantly fresh. Can’t wait to try other options in the menu on our next visit. I, 100% recommend this place.

We just ate there for our first time last week. I ordered their Cuban and it was delicious. I never expected to get a good cuban in Waynesville, NC. We will definitely be going back the next time we are in Waynesville.
