Lynchburg Food Guide: 8 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Lynchburg

April 14, 2018 Karren Gelb

Lynchburg is a city in the south-central region of the U.S. state of Tennessee. It is governed by a consolidated city-county government unit whose boundaries coincide with those of Moore County. Lynchburg is best known as the location of Jack Daniel's, whose famous Tennessee whiskey is marketed worldwide as the product of a city with only one traffic light. Despite the operational distillery, which is a major tourist attraction, Lynchburg's home county of Moore is a dry county. The population was 6,362 at the 2010 census.

This incredible building was built before Jack Daniels came to Lynchburg and has been serving food since 1908. Originally a boarding house and now a restaurant that serves a gorgeous lunch of wholesome cooking all freshly prepared. The servers were smiling and polite and made you feel at home. If you appreciate good food then its worth a visit.

Prince's Parlor

Reviewed By Pamela B - Alexandria, Minnesota

Stopped in here for an ice cream cone. It's a typical ice cream shop with a nice selection of flavors and a delightful proprietor. They also make sundaes, etc. although all we had was a waffle cone. I couldn't decide between two flavors but really didn't want a double dip so he gave me a half scoop of each one to equal one scoop on a waffle cone - very good customer service.

Southern Perks

Fun, casual atmosphere to enjoy your breakfast or lunch. All fresh ingredients, homemade sauces, seasonally available homemade soups, a variety of freshly made sandwiches, wraps, calzones, pizzas, and delicious baked goods. So much more than a coffee shop or sub shop, eat here once and you will be hooked!

After a tour of the distillery, we drove to the town square and found Southern Perks. A small quaint restaurants that serves great coffee, home made pastries and breads, and a nice selections of sandwiches made on their fresh bread. The prices were very reasonable for such good food in a tourist trap area. A good choice for any meal after the distillery tour

The bbq is excellent and the pizza is wonderful. We stopped here following the distillery tour and we were in somewhat of a hurry.

Lynchburg Fix'ns

Reviewed By 042143 - Glen Carbon, Illinois

We stopped in for breakfast based on rec of Candy, lady from Caboose Bar BQ and very happy we did. This is the type of small town place that makes you happy to be there.
Coffee imed brought to table with a smile. People already there smiled and said good morning.
My wife had two scrambled eggs lightly done, bacon and biscuit. I had the number 11. Two biscuits and excel gravy, two eggs over easy, two pieces of sausage and some of the best home fries ever. Our server kept our cups full and made sure we were pleased with our meal and we were.
We were full and happy when we left. Should also mention this was $12 and change
They are open for lunch and not sure about dinner. If in town go here!

I am a big fan of chinese food and have had it in many states over the years. This is the best I have had since moving here and, as it is freshly-made-to-order, takes awhile for preparation. It is also a bit pricier than some chinese places around but definitely worth it.

But Subway was next doors to our motel so off we go to see if they had breakfast. No coffee ready and it was late opening. I didn't even know they had breakfast. Flat bread with eggs, bacon, onion & mayonnaise. It was very good! I graded the lower due to a lack of coffee and a late opening. It is worth the stop for a quick breakfast.
