Since 2002, Amalfi's Restaurant & Pizzeriabring to Wilkes County a traditional flavor of mediterranean cuisine, using the finest and freshest products, like seafood, vegetable, poultry, and meats. We welcome you in a real Italian atmosphere. Buon Appetito!
Extremely good food at a reasonable price. The highlight is the food which is exceptionally prepared and delicious. The atmosphere is good with both indoor and outdoor seating. The wait staff seemed new and unsure in answering questions at times
but was friendly. Portions are large. The only downside is the restrooms that need a remodel.

Brushy Mountain Smokehouse never advertised that they were on the BBQ trail but I thought I'd try it anyway.
Per the NC BBQ app it's cooked over gas and hickory but I really couldn't taste the hickory to be honest. My wife and I both agreed that the BBQ had a "sweet" taste. It was unlike any other BBQ we've had. I was kind of disappointed in the complete lack of smoke flavor though. While I prefer chopped, this hand pulled que was definitely tender and juicy though.
The sauce on the table was extremely peppery. We weren't expecting that much black pepper and my wife applied too much for her taste.
I added slaw to the sandwich (who doesn't) and it balances out the black pepper taste.
Honestly, his was average que. However, we would definitely stop back because of the attached ice cream shop! I had a apple pie cone and it was amazing!! The size is huge!! My wife had a delicious milk shake.
Overall, this probably a good family restaurant but only an average que joint. However, we would return for the delicious ice cream!!!
Last thing, our service was absolutely excellent. She really treated us like family even though it was obvious we hadn't been there before. She gave us recommendations that we followed and were happy with.

This is hands down the best restaurant in the Wilkesboro and North Wilkesboro area. This is a farm to table restaurant. The ingredients always seem fresh. The menu changes but some items carry over.
The prices are reasonable and the service is unflaggingly helpful and courteous.
The restaurant closes in the afternoon before it reopens for dinner. There is occasional live music.

These donuts are good. Nothing else needs to be said. Made fresh daily. Large variety. Priced well. Not on the beaten path, but worth the slight detour.

Talia Espresso Drive Thru location conveniently off Hwy. 421 in Wilkesboro NC. featuring gourmet lattes, espresso, coffee, cold blended drinks, smoothies, teas, frappes and light pastries
This review is based on Talia's primary location on Main Street in North Wilkesboro, not their smaller drive-through location on US421.
I'm not really sure why we don't come to Talia more often, because it's a very nice experience. We just don't shop in downtown N.W. much, and that's our loss. The town has been steadily improving for years.
If you're just looking for a place to meet a friend and have a leisurely discussion over a cup of coffee, this definitely is it. If you want a healthy lunch without the heavy fried foods most restaurants typically feature, this is the place. This is not "down home" cooking, but there are plenty of other restaurants in the area for that.
The pita wraps, salads, and soups at Talia are original and tasty, with an accent on Mediterranean cuisine. The prices are reasonable. The service is somewhat leisurely because it's the customer's responsibility to pick up their order when it's ready at the counter, but somehow you don't mind that.
You never feel rushed here, and it's a good place to linger over your newspaper or a book. Talia's feels a lot like a library. The walls are lined with shelves, some containing pieces of art, and some containing books. A rack at the back offers a few good books for sale if you are so inclined.
Parallel parking at curbside is usually adequate unless you happen to arrive at the same time as the moviegoers patronizing the theater across the street. I can't think of any reason not to eat lunch at Talia, and resolve to do it more often in 2017.

A great, little out-of-the-way place that serves the best coffee in the county. Anchor is located in the rear of a parking lot, off of a back street - look for their signs. They grind and roast their coffee daily, and offer several different kinds of excellent, South American blends. They offer a small, comfortable seating area that is really relaxing. Seek it out!

My family loves this place so upon visiting this past weekend, we stopped in. I can see why they love it. Everyone was friendly and the environment was clean. The lunch specials are very large and incredibly cheap. Two of us each had a lunch special and queso with our chips and it was under $15. The Chile relleno was delicious, however, I would have liked more Chile. All in all, a good visit

This is the only Thai cuisine in Wilkes county however it is good. Their Pad Thai is great. Also I recommend the Gai Krob if your into pineapple. If it's a cold day drop in for one of their special hot pots to warm you up.

The sounds of friendly conversation and laughter drift over the four top tables. The smell of the grill makes your mouth begin to salivate. A friendly wave from Madge or Jeanie guides you to a just opened table. Plenty of coffee and juice to get you started. Then the decisions of what home cooked staples will start your day. The biscuits and gravy will always hit the spot. I don't know what they do to the farm fresh eggs but they leave you wishing you had ordered one more. The tenderloin is my typical protein and there is never a scrap left. The 50's is a wonderful place to settle back in a days past, enjoy some good home cooked fresh food and of course friends you know or some you have not yet met. Take some time, slow down and enjoy.

Was really looking forward to dinner with friends here, but it was a very disappointing evening. Risotto was not good at all...texture and flavor were off. It was paste-y and bland. Everyone else had something wonderful. Service was slow and not very attentive. I've had quite a few good experiences here, which is why I am still rating it average instead of terrible.
