The wife and I will be up in W. Jefferson for a nice getaway Oct 14th-19th. While we enjoy cooking in the rental cabin we would like to know if there are some great places to eat in the area (including near Boone). We are not looking for anything upscale as she works in an upscale steakhouse in Raleigh. Just some good local pub food, Mexican, or maybe even Chinese food. Any recommendations?
Also, are there any good events going on that week or fun things to do? Hiking gets a bit old after a while ;-)
Thanks in advance!
