Excited about Eating by Ernie & Dora Hiers

This edition of Exciting about Eating takes us to the High Country and to BBQ-Burgers & Brews Restaurant & Tavern in Boone, NC. This restaurant offers all of the BBQ regulars, cooked “low and slow” plus many unique burgers and a salad bar.

For my meal, I chose the B3 Sampler Plate which included baby back ribs and brisket with rosemary fries, creamed corn and a yeast roll. Whenever I visit a BBQ restaurant for the first time, I always like to try a sampler so that I can get an overall taste of all of their food. The star of this plate was the baby back ribs, tender, sweet, and smoked to perfection. The only issue I had with them was I wished there were more. The next highlight? Those fries, fried crispy and infused with rosemary. I should have doubled my order since my wife liked them too. The brisket was moist and tasty, and the cream corn sweet and delicious. Dora here. Those rosemary fries were addictive!

Sampler Platter

Dora here. So many great sounding burgers and BBQ dishes, but the pork nachos were calling my name. When they came out, I was a bit surprised at the small-ish dish. In other restaurants, they’re usually piled high on a platter. But, really, this appetizer was the perfect size for one person to consume for lunch. And I did. lol. The chips were light and fresh, the pork tender, and the queso drizzled with a light hand. And the best part? Every bite had something on it. 🙂

Pork Nachos, just the right amount of goodies for every chip!

  1. I love the rustic atmosphere of this place. It reminded me of a restaurant I loved to go to as a child in Fairfax, Virginia. It was called the Wagon Wheel. They had the best desserts! 🙂 Unfortunately, this week was too busy to try some place new. We’ll see what the weekend holds. Have a safe and wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! xo
