Stopped here for lunch and had the fried chicken, It was delicious. Crisp, not greasy and moist inside. The potato salad was very good and so wete the green beans.
Was also nice to see one fo the owners, Don who was an old friend of my son.

Highly recommend stopping there.

Dont let the rough exterior fool you. The food is delicious and there is almost always a crowd. Great burgers and sandwiches...one of our favorite little places. Old building but great atmosphere and has the feel of the something like

Walker's Soda Fountain

Old fashioned soda fountain - new ownership - use old fashioned glass bowls/dishes. Also serve hotdogs and a couple of other small sandwiches.

This is a great little soda fountain restaurant. The employees are so friendly. We only ordered shakes. They were delicious! They fill your glass and bring the silver container they prepare it in. We filled our glass twice. I kept saying I would NEVER be able to finish it.
It was so tasty, I drank every drop. All three of us finished ours!
Highly recommend this place!

Lovely eclectic coffee bar and restaurant on Main Street in Pilot Mountain, this place is great for lunches, homemade foods and recipes, all usual coffees, lattes and teas, friendly staff and service, live music on weekend evenings. An unusual and much needed ambiance for the area.

This place was packed with people waiting for table, but there was a seat or two at bar, where a very friendly guy was helpful. Draft beer...only two local types, but found one pretty good.
Had blacked pork chop and green beans which were good...chop on spicy side.
They specialize in steaks and ribs and judging by the crowd most people must like their fare. I'd go back for sure. happy trails

My wife and I went there for lunch and a wine tasting. Since they have suggested wine pairings for each item on the menu, we decided to do the tasting first while looking at a menu. They have two tastings. One is a tasting of 4 of their regular wines for $7.00. The other is a tasting of 8 of their reserve wines for $15.00. Most of the vineyards in N.C. charge $5.00 for a tasting of several of their wines. However, this was well worth the price. Each of the wines they served were excellent. We particularly liked the Vidal Blanc aged in oak and the Jolotage, a very smooth meritage. They served each wine in the appropriate wine glass for the type of wine. This is the first time I have experienced this even in NAPA or Sonoma tastings. The Jolotage was served in a Riedel glass and you get to keep that glass. The Riedel glass alone is worth more than the $15.00 for the tasting. Then we went into their beautifully appointed dining room which overlooks a pond. My wife ordered a steak and cheese sandwich. She was raving over it so much, I tasted it. It was probably the best steak sandwich we have eaten and we lived in Philly for several years. Her sandwich also came with a large bowl of fries which were also excellent. I ordered the special which was roasted egg plant with arugula, roasted peppers and fresh herbs with a balsamic reduction. It was fantastic. This is a great place for a special occasion or just a special experience. The entire staff was very friendly. Their web site says you need reservations for dinner but I would also make them for lunch. It is small and truly a wonderful experience.

Reviewed By r1manchester - Concord, New Hampshire

Two of us,sat at table, waitress comes by, I ask about beer, she hands me menu and points...serious lady! The beer selection leaves something to be desired...limited, and lots of Narragansett (UGH).
Friend had a pimento burger and fries which she liked.
I wanted smoked wings so I asked Miss No Smile the difference between "small" (6.95) and large (12.95)..she said the large was about 6 wings...expensive I thought, but I ordered it anyway.
Guess what??...I got 5 HUGH wings (3 filled me up). They were tasty, so no complaints there.
Crowded, so locals must like...for me with Morganton just down the road I'd just as soon eat somewhere there. Happy Trails

Sopper's

Reviewed By barscoinc - Mount Airy, North Carolina

We have been going to Soppers since it opened way back when. The chef/owner cooks gourmet style food at a very very reasonable price, the waitresses are friendly and active, and the place is a big local favorite. We always take guests to Soppers, on the main street of Pilot Mountain (aka Mount Pilot from the Andy Griffith shows). The cuisine varies from Greek and Italian to American, two meals a day, with specials at dinner.

Tlaque Paque Mexican Grill

Reviewed By jmpncsu - Raleigh, North Carolina

We ate dinner at Tlaquepaque in Pilot Mountain as a group of ten after hiking in Pilot Mountain State Park. It was a good dining experience - good food and drinks, friendly service and reasonable prices. Despite being a large group, we were seated quickly and the servers ensured we had plenty of chips and salsa. My wife and I split the chicken fajitas for two and they were very good. Everyone else in the group enjoyed their meals and we took advantage of the margarita special for the evening. Since their were ten of us, it took a while to get all our food, but they kept us happy with chips and salsa. Overall, it was a good dining experience and we would definitely eat here again next time we're in the Pilot Mountain area.
