Food Scene
The food is amazing! Try the Sunday brunch! The menu changes with what's available locally, and the chef/owner has competed in the state cooking competition- he's amazing! I usually try whatever is on special, but the pork chops are a go to as well!

There's often not a lot of ethnic options in small towns, but Boone seems to be an exception! Vidalia is great for American cuisine, but I love to get the noodle bowl or Masaman curry here! Try the mango sticky rice for dessert!

As long as we're talking ethnic food, let me tell you about some of the best sushi I've ever had- right here in Boone! You might be as surprised as I was, but my fish monger friend in Boston told me that most fish is flash frozen on the boat now- it's all about attention to detail in keeping it that way. Interesting! Back to Cobo- one of the best fried calamari plates ever! Also, some special rolls like the Going Green for veggie lovers, the Mile High, and the Appalachian. Try them all! My very favorite thing is the Chirashi bowl. It's a full meal with sashimi twirled into flowers, rice, pickles, sliced apples and lemons, pickled seafood salad, seaweed salad, avocado... mmmmmm.....

Lengua tacos! They're my favorite- best tasting beef you've ever had, if you can get past the fact that it's tongue! If you're not feeling that adventurous, the pork and pineapple is also a favorite. It's traditional Mexican food, so don't expect a hard taco shell! The chips and guac are made fresh, and the waitstaff is so friendly!

Wonderful bread, pastry, and dessert collection! They sell coffee and tea, too. Good place for fresh eggs in a pinch, though I prefer getting them from farmers a bit cheaper! The savory scones are good, and their buttermilk bread and yeast rolls are the best!

If you're here for the third Saturday of the month, go by the Legion's breakfast fundraiser! All are welcome! Homemade biscuits and gravy are amazing! Meeting the members and their families is always wonderful, and the Legion supports many Veteran-related community events, scholarships, and provides honor guards for burials. A great organization!

Excellent Pho! Under $10 for good sized bowl- you choose the ingredients. Don't know jicama? Make sure you include it- it's great! I like to mix the spicy lemon grass and hearty beef broth together! They have bahn mi, but I can't give up the pho to try it!

Drinks & Nightlife
AMB is the place! These guys not only brew up some fine beer, but their civic minded support for the community has them at the top of my list! The pizza from the food truck is awesome, but you really go there for the beer! You can while away some time playing cornhole or one of the many board games they keep around. Sit outside or in!

Sightseeing
You'll not believe the views! The smoke in the mountains in the morning, the vistas that stretch forever in the day, the sunsets that turn the evening sky a brilliant orange and blue, the stars you can't see form town! Any time of day, it's amazing!
