Anybody visiting Dollywood, Pigeon Forge, or Great Smoky Mountains National Park will have no trouble finding a place to eat – there are hundreds. The trick is to find a good one. Roadfood favorites include Lil Black Bear Cafe for monumental pancakes, Boss Hogg’s BBQ, the Wild Bear Tavern for such true Old World specialties as wiener schnitzel and potato pancakes, Elvira’s Cafe for a green tomato BLT, and Bakin Bakeshop for fresh cupcakes with icings so good that they are sold by the cupful, to eat like ice cream. For a real old-time, sit-down country meal, Grandmother’s Kitchen is the place to go. A rustic, wood-paneled cafe with decor that is a panoply of religious icons, hunting trophies, farm implements, and vintage kitchenware, Grandmother’s serves Smoky Mountain food cooked with true grandmotherly expertise.
