I'm really not sure what the other reviews are talking about, this place is a bargain for the amount and quality of food. Everything we had including the dessert was awesome at a great price. This is a counter service restaurant also, which I prefer.

We stopped in after checking up looking waterfall and we're pleasantly delighted to find out they lived up to the hype on trip advisor and have a excellent lunch with iced tea and baked goods.

All 4 of us ordered something different (wraps and sandwiches) and they were all delicious and filling. They also have salads and delicious cookies. No sodas, but several different flavored teas and waters.

Cherokee, NC is in far western NC and I used TripAdvisor to locate a place to eat lunch. It was "right-on" in all regards.

I see you offer gluten free options, so my question is what items are gluten free? Breads? Sandwiches? Soups and salads?

You would do better calling them directly. Perhaps they have a menu posted online, as well.
Is this located in a casino?
