Now and then, we like to just go to a local resturant when we are camping. We often wind up at Cracker Barrel, Subway, McDonalds, or some other national chain resturant because we don't know where the good (and kid-friendly for us) local places are.

What's good where you live, and where you camp? And what do you get? And where is the resturant?

Please include the town and name of the resturant at the start of your dining tip. Thanks.

Rickard Ridge Barbque at Cove Lake has some of the best food I have had. Anything You want to try is good. If you really want a treat, and if you are really hungry, Crazy Cow Burger. My little wife has it every other time we go there. They are GREAT.

I know you mentioned chains, but one of my absolute favorite places is Carrabba's in Johnson City!! My all-time fav is "Mo's Seafood" in Baltimore!!! The Crab Imperial Stuffed Lobster is just fabulous, fantastic, mouth-watering, etc., etc., etc.

Over here in the highlands of VA, The Tavern on Main is superb, but expensive. We can only eat there a couple times a year and NOT with kids!!

Allison's Restaurant in Abingdon is very, very good.

The Snack Shack, about 1/2 mile from my house has some of the best burgers and dogs that you can buy.

Dang, I'm gonna have to go fix me something to eat.....all this talk of food is killing me.

Rickard ridge at cove Lake is a great place... Had their Rubbed Up grilled chicken last time and it was phenomenal. SouthWestyKim, Priscilla, you are right, anything I've had on their menu has been delicious...especially the ribs!

I have camped at COVE LAKE many times... but never tried the BBQ restaurant. I drove up to Cove Lake yesterday.. just fooling around.. and decided to take home some dinner from RICKARD'S RIDGE BBQ. I got kind of a sampler platter.. with enough food for 2 people. We had pulled pork, 1/2 rack of ribs, chicken, potato salad, cole slaw, baked beans, sweet potato fries and rolls.

It was delicious.. I am for sure gonna eat there again. Probably soon! I loved the meat and chicken.. but the potato salad was very good too. Potato salad can be really good.. or really bad. To me.. their's was great. Almost as good as Darlene's (almost.. not quite).

Alan,

How about some dining direction from the Chattanooga area??? I'm sure there are several great local places down there.

Uncle Gus BBQ in Ten Mile Tn. About a 1/4 mile off Hwy 68 What I like best about this place is they give you more than enough food you dont leave there still hungry or wishing you had more. This place is close to Hornsby Hollow Campground.

I have driven through HORNSBY HOLLOW.. but never camped there. It looks real nice. A friend of mine (at work) camps at HORNSBY HOLLOW at least once a year.

If you are ever out between Cosby and Newport you have to hit Carvers. It's an apple orchard / farm store / family diner with very good home cooked food.

Its always on our list when we stay at the Gatlinburg Jellystone.

If you are ever down here in Maryville, hit up Hot Rods diner on Cusick adjacent to the county library. 50's themed burgers etc with huge portions.

Yes, Carvers is good. They give you a sample of their apple cider & apple butter, when eating there.
