Stumbled across this place a few years ago while road tripping around Blue Ridge. Can't remember what we ate, but remember the place well. It's a little hut down in the tiny valley town of Vesuvius. Inside is a tightly packed grocery store with a little kitchen and a single table. I loaded up on awesome local jerky I do remember that actually. Gertie, the owner and her daughter were both there and we incredibly friendly and a good laugh. Visitors from all over have signed their names and messages on the walls, ceiling, or just about anywhere. They'll give you a Sharpee if you ask. Definitely stop by if you are in the area!

We followed Roadtrippers suggestion and was not disappointed. Cute little place, very welcoming staff and yes the place is one big guest book, just leave your name anywhere you can find space. The food is ok, the BBQ pork sandwich was good. Typical fried fast food. Give it a try it's worth the trip.

BBQ was just okay, reading the names on the walls was my favorite part.
