  • The Blue Ridge Parkway is a severely underrated tourist destination, even for those in the state. Go sometime in the fall when leaves begin to change and it is wonderful.
    And yes, Cookout is amazing. I can go anywhere in the state and expect one to be in the town I'm in, and even though it's cheap it is good food (even if it isn't at all healthy for you). Their late hours have saved my ass many times in college.

    • I remember I was going to college in Johnson City, TN when we first got Cookout there (It's first Tennessee location) It was so good it took business away from Bojangles Wendys and Zaxbys.

  • Nice. Seems like a fun place. But your food's lacking in sauce, going by those pics. Looks tasty, though...

    Simples...
