Good place for refreshment
When I plan a trip around western NC I usually start at Buck's in Cashiers NC.
I don't work for Buck's or know the owner. I am recommending Buck's just for the really good products and service I have received there. That said, here are a few pics of Buck's.
BTW, notice the health dept rating beside the mounted bucks head in the last shot.
It just figures, now that I am old and wise enough to stop and smell the roses, I would lose my sense of smell.
