I am in no way a critic but I will give you my opinion (and my wife’s) of some of the restaurants in the area. I also realized I seem to like the burger and beer joints….This restaurant list I am compiling will cause me to have to do some “market research” and try new places

Great Summary of downtown Gatlinburg
Gatlinburg is nestled at the entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the most visited national park in America. There are three entrances into the Smokies right from downtown. Gatlinburg attracts more than eleven million visitors a year and can grow to a population of 40,000-plus on any givennight. This little town of 3,944 residents is dedicated to welcoming all of its guests with a taste of Appalachian hospitality at its best.

We visited the Ole Smoky Moonshine distillery in Gatlinburg and I was blown away at how amazing it was! The moonshine is given out in samples for tasting at the bar so we got to try every flavor! Yaeyah! I was warm and fuzzy after all that goodness! The flavors are quite impressive and the alcohol strengths vary. Blue Flame is the highest at 128 proof. Back when moonshiners wanted to measure the quality and taste of their liquor, they would burn the alcohol and judge it by the blue flame that was produced. Hence, the name. They even had a pumpkin pie moonshine! I was most impressed with the Hunch Punch Lightin. Tastes just like fruit punch. If you want to check out all their flavors, products, and recipes head on over to http://olesmoky.com/ and grab yourself a jar! You won’t be disappointed folks. <!
