Mountain Boomer is a must-stop

The Mountain Boomer is a must-stop if you are near lunch or supper time. We drove by and decided to turn in, and are thrilled that we did. The food is fantastic. The staff friendly. The facilities spotless. They have a set up for live music (5:30 on Fridays, and they’ve added some open mic nights as well) and they have a bar with a good craft beer selection. Will be stopping by again next time I’m in town. Dean was a pleasure to talk to as well.

Was an incredibly pleasant surprise

My family and i stopped in here for lunch and it was an incredibly pleasant surprise. the staff was great and the pulled pork was amazing, and they had a really cool selection of local BBQ sauces. the owner was very kind- gave us lots of recommendations what to do as we were on our way to Asheville, talked football with me for a little while too. when we do this drive again, we’re definitely making another stop.

Friendly staff and casual, cozy atmosphere

Extremely friendly staff and casual, cozy atmosphere. I got the pulled pork platter with mac n cheese and apple bacon slaw. The pulled pork was good, with a generous portion for the price. The mac n cheese was fine but nothing stand-out about it. The apple bacon slaw tasted fresh and delicious–good balance of sweet, tangy, and savory. Lastly, the homemade Eastern NC vinegar sauce is fantastic. Sweet, spicy, and sour. The perfect thing to balance out some savory pulled pork.
