The Blue Ridge Mountains are known for adding unique twists on traditional, southern dishes.  Sample regional fare and try something new and exciting when dining at locally owned cafes, diners and restaurants.  You'll find everything from authentic North Carolina pulled, pork BBQ to the traditional southern "meat and 3" to scrumptious cheesecakes and desserts! For the wine and craft beer fans, follow the Blue Ridge Travelers' Wine Trail and check out downtown Marion's tap rooms.
