Restaurants in Mars Hill, NC
The town of Mars Hill has a restaurant right in downtown on the Main Street and close by for those who are visiting the Mars Hill University campus or attending a SART Play at Owen Theatre. The best pizza and Italian food in the area is served at Papa Nicks. Or, you can enjoy a southern dish at one of the other restaurants nearby. A few of the fast food chains provide a quick stop if you are just passing by on the Interstate, but you are missing a real opportunity if you don’t drive just that one mile to Main Street to try out their local restaurant.
Little Creek Cafe
Home-style cooking in a cozy atmosphere. Locals remember the cooking of the late Edna Boone who was famous for her home cooking when she ran the cafe for 43 years. The current owners try to keep up that reputation. And, locals still crowd the place during lunch for the standard southern fare of meat and 2 vegetables with a drink and dessert. But, don’t forget about the breakfast biscuits.
Main Street Burrito
You know right away when you walk in the door that owners Dawn and Michael have put their hearts into their business. Their menu offers what their mission says– “quality, fresh food at good prices.” Add to that a “fun environment” and you have the formula for their restaurant. A choice of dips for your chips, a great variety of burrito flavors and rice & salad bowls are “what’s inside” waiting for you. Open Monday through Thursday from 11AM to 8PM, Friday & Saturday from 11am to 9pm.
