Good Eats

Mellow Mushroom (Boone):

This is by far the best mellow mushroom in the country.  They have a great beer selection (draft and bottled) and excellent food (Pizza, Hoagies, Calzones, Salads, etc).  In the summer, stop by after a long session and sit out on the deck.
Hours: Monday-Saturday (11:00AM-10:00PM), Sunday (12:00PM-10:00PM)
Located: Downtown Boone on Rivers St (right beside campus).

 

Café Portofino (Boone):

This is the bar/restaurant right across the street from Mellow Mushroom.  Although this is a bar, don’t judge the food!  I strongly recommend trying the spiced sirloin pasta dish when you go.  Great food and its open late (the bar).  
Hours: Everyday (Restaurant 11:30AM-9:00PM, Bar till 2:00AM)
Located: Downtown Boone on Rivers St (right beside campus).

 

Black Cat (Boone):  

Good burritos and beer, who can resist? 
Hours: 11:30AM-9:00PM
Located: Downtown Boone on South Depot St. (In between King St and Rivers St).

 

Los Arcoiris Mexican Restaurant (Boone):

Great Mexican food for even better prices. 
Hours: Everyday (11:00AM-10:00PM)
Located: Right behind Burger King on Boone Heights Dr.

 

Hokkaido Japanese Restaurant (Boone):

Excellent Japanese steakhouse with reasonable prices.

Peabody’s (Boone):

Great selection of beer and wine for those in need of a better selection than the grocery store.
