Maggie Valley’s oldest BBQ restaurant sits so close to Jonathan Creek, you’ll feel like you’re sitting right on the creek bed. Both the customer service and the food here is top-notch: from sandwich plates to picnic-style offerings, this is the place to go if you want to try something new, like fried corn! This rich side is rolled in batter and deep-fried to crispy indulgence. For all you sauce aficionados, you’ve got to try Butts on the Creek’s award-winning mild mustard sauce—it goes well with just about anything on your plate.
