There are so many local restaurants in Boone to explore. It seems like every restaurant in Boone has their own specialty or something they are known for. I’ve compiled a list of my favorite restaurants in Boone along with my favorite items to get at each restaurant. If you’re headed to Boone this season, you have to try some of my favorite places!
Macado’s is an Irish pub located on King Street. Its proximity to campus makes it everyone’s favorite in town! They have an extensive menu that includes wings, burgers, sandwiches, salads, and much more. Personally, I order the “Tonto” sandwich with a side of tater tots. They also have an AMAZING selection of desserts. My favorite is the cinnamon roll!
- Boone Rolls
Located right across the street from Macado’s, Boone Bagelry is a breakfast favorite. Expect it to be packed on game days, family weekend, and for other big App State events. They have breakfast and lunch bagel sandwiches, breakfast platters, and coffee drinks. You can never go wrong with any of their items, but my favorite is the bacon, egg and cheese on a whole wheat rye bagel!
- Lost Province Brewing Co.
Lost Province is not just a restaurant, but also a microbrewery, making it very popular with older Appalachian State students. They have so many great food options and the atmosphere inside is amazing. It is not uncommon to walk into the restaurant and see a concert by a local artist.
When I go I always get a personal wood fired pepperoni pizza!
- return cabin
Comeback Shack is a local fast food restaurant in Boone that is very comparable to Five Guys.
They mainly sell burgers, but they also have chicken, salads, veggie burgers, and sides. Depending on the season, a different specialty shake will be available in addition to vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. When I go to the Comeback Shack I usually make a burger and get a strawberry milkshake (yum)
5. sunrise grill
Sunrise Grill is a favorite breakfast restaurant for Boone locals. In addition to the restaurant, they also have a cafeteria inside. While you may have to wait (it gets crowded on the weekends), right next to the store is a place to play miniature golf! Sunset Grill has a lot of menu items, but I love the tasty breakfast. Like Boone Bagelry, they have an amazing bacon, egg and cheese breakfast sandwich.
6. Stick Boy Bread Co.
You can find Stick Boy Bread Co. products throughout Boone. Cafeterias on the Appalachian State University campus sell their baked goods, but they also have two locations around Boone, one for dine-in and the other for take-out. They offer a variety of breakfast and bakery items, along with coffee and smoothies. In addition, they also have a lunch and dinner menu and a children’s menu. I have tried many of their pies, both on and off campus. My favorites are the chocolate croissant and the spinach cheddar scone!
