I’ve seen the largest menu ever.

I located Cafe Gouda during a search prior to a recent trip to The Smokey Mountains. The online menu listed several items that I wanted to try.

Upon walking in and to the order counter we were presented with a huge chalk board full of items.

The Café Gouda menu offers both traditional and unique dishes, serving delicious food for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Hickory Tavern!!!!!!

Regardless of the loud, obnoxious West Virginia football fans my meal was excellent.

I tried the smothered chicken for the first time. As expected the chicken with sides of rice and mashed potatoes was delicious. The portions were just enough to fill me up, but I still had to have dessert.

It was a challenge keeping up with so many college football games on the surrounding tv screens.

Another bonus was the milk provided with our Tavern Tower chocolate cake.

Warming up at the Hickory Tavern.

After standing outside in cold temps with constant wind watching a soccer game, I needed to have a good sit down meal.  I had several options nearby, but chose to drive a few miles out of the way to visit the nearest Hickory Tavern.  I have a few favorites there and the homemade Tavern Potato Chips are high on the list.  These delicious slices are served with mexi-ranch dressing.  I nearly filled up on the chip and sweet tea.

Fortunately I was still hungry enough to enjoy  a burger.  Another favorite is the Pepper Jack Burger.The Pepper Jack Burger is loaded with,  pepper jack cheese, applewood smoked bacon, jalapenos, lettuce, tomatoes & onions with a side of fries just in case I need more to eat.

Although I was full and finally warm, I still had to order some dessert to go.  The waitress looked surprised when I ordered four Tavern Towers to go.  We had plenty of cake to eat during the following few days.
