“Eating at its best!”

Thunder Mountain General Store and Deli
Ranked #4 of 28 Restaurants in Robbinsville
Restaurant details
Reviewed 26 September 2017 via mobile

We stopped at this mountain top eatery while on a motorcycle trip in the Smokies... The sandwiches and salads were wonderful and served in great portions.. I had a mixed meat and cheese which was huge! The country store atmosphere is enhanced by the delightful and friendly family who made our meals and rapidly served us, then came out to visit us and take pictures. In addition to the porch, where blue grass was playing, there was a nearby covered area with picnic tables. None of us wanted to leave! It was so relaxing, and Brooks the resident canine made sure we were each welcomed as we got off our bikes and were waiting to be served. Would definitely recommend and will stop again when we next ride in this NC area.

This is a great place to stop and visit before or after the skyway. Extremely nice owners who run the shop. Their prices are normal and they are not out to extort the travelers in the area. We will make this a regular stop on our trips just because of their friendly atmosphere!!!

A surprise find on NC 143 in Robbinsville, NC, a few miles from the Cherohala Skyway. The owners, Ken and Melissa are very friendly and make you feel at home. The menu is not large, but the hamburger on white toast is sensational. Brooks the dog will meet you at the door for a back scratch, and visit you if you have food. Gas is also available. Make sure you donate to Emilines school trip to Washington, DC. She is a very impressive young lady.

We go there every am for our biscuits. We have enjoyed getting to know the owners Ken & Melissa Osborn and they make you feel like family. They offer a lot of supplies and know the area really well.

we road nearly 300 miles a day and our destination was always this little store for a bite to eat. they make a great sandwich here and if your diet allows, you must try out the cinnamon buns. there is gas available for the bikes. a clean bathroom for the ladies.
really all you need for a lunch stop. the roads to and from this place are some of the best on this side of the US for motorcycling.
