Has anyone checked out either of Jim Leff's two recommendations near Boone? http://www.chow.com/tour/135
1) "Citgo Market, a.k.a. Foscoe Country Corner (8937 Highway 105 South, Boone, North Carolina; 828-963-6409), makes the best barbecue (hickory-smoked!) in this part of the state (the mountains are not known for good barbecue). The meat itself is very well smoked, but most North Carolinians would quibble with the sauce, which is too sweet. This joint makes pretty good cheeseburgers too."
Last time I was in the area, it was Sunday and the restaurant side of the gas station was closed. They are open for lunch Monday through Saturday and for dinner on Friday when they feature a fish fry. We're planning to get dinner there Friday. Just wanted to see if anyone has been?
2) "Johnson’s Bakery, a.k.a Kersh’s Old World Bakery (106-1 Clubhouse Drive, Highway 105, Foscoe, North Carolina; 828-963-5668) the best sticky buns I've ever eaten."
I couldn't find this address on my last visit. Again, can anyone give another report?
