Local Favorites

Our local favorites section highlights restaurants that are unique to the Boone area. 

Dining in the Boone area boasts an urban diversity and quality - just without the urban!  These are dining options that offer tastes and experiences that are distinctly Boone.  We love our chain restaurants too, but you won't find any of those in this section.  This section is for all of you who call or email us about locally owned restaurants. We hope you are able to enjoy dining in one or more of these local favorites.
