Lunch at Mountain Fresh Grocery in Highlands, North Carolina, is always a special treat! They offer a plethora of delicious dishes to tame your hunger or “hangry.” Choose from juicy grilled burgers and sandwiches—or specialty dishes like grilled chicken with pesto and Greek yogurt spread on flat bread, southwest grilled chicken salad, baby back ribs, shrimp poboys, sautéed crab cakes or a juicy Lucy burger. The hand-cut fries and chips are all made in house and the coleslaw is scrumdiddlyumptious!
You can also enjoy a wood-fired NY style pizza or pasta with your choice of sauces and toppings—the pesto with chicken on angel hair pasta is a personal favorite. If you still need more to choose from try the salad, soup, pasta and pizza bar—yes, they probably have whatever your little heart desires.
Enjoy a glass of wine or a mixed drink from the wine bar and finish off with dessert fresh from the bakery. They offer dinner for two to-go Monday-Saturday, a potato bar in the evenings and a large selection of freshly roasted coffees and espresso.
If you still need encouragement to check it out, know that you can pick up a variety of specialty cheeses and accoutrements—and you may choose from a large selection of wine and artisan beers for those fun-loving, drop-in guests. Enjoy your lunch!
