Profile: Laurel Mountain Eatery (archived 02/09/12)

Since 1994, the owners of Laurel Mountain Eatery have taken pride in operating their eateries as “Mom & Pop” shops. If you eat something in their establishment, then more than likely they made it, including their homemade sauces and dressings.

Serving a delicious variety of wraps, sandwiches, burgers, and salads, John & Laura firmly believe you cannot pay anyone to care as much as owners do. John & Laura serve as the Head Chefs, Chief Dishwashers, and Head Wait Staff. If the front door is open, that means one (or both) of them is there. They do it all with one shared goal – to make each meal a quality experience for the customer, worthy of a “letter to Mom”; a real “want to come back tomorrow” experience.

Their huge burgers and freshly prepared salads have been voted the best in East Tennessee. The burgers at Laurel Mountain Eatery are big coarse-ground black Angus burgers served on grilled corn-dusted Kaiser rolls. Their gourmet grilled cheese features your choice of three cheeses and fresh veggies. The Spinach Chicken Salad is made to order served with their own honey mustard dressing. The Hawaiian Paradise wrap has been a crowd-pleaser for years.
