We are the lunch hotspot in Athens, Tennessee. We are famous for our Chicken Salad and French Dip sandwiches. We make our Chicken Salad in house (secret recipe handed down over the years), so we can control the quality and consistency to be the top seller in McMinn County. Our French Dip starts with slow cooking our prime rib for 12 hours. We have many other sandwiches to meet all tastes since 2004.
Our family friendly environment offers something for everyone. Visit us to hang out with family and friends, watch the game, cool off or warm up. Be our guest and we strive to provide best in class service. In 2018, we took out our deli cases and added ice cream. We specialize in Rolled Ice Cream but also serve soft serve and hand dipped flavors. We even have the World Famous Dole Whip. Our custom milkshakes are very popular and leave you deciding which flavor to enjoy.
In 2020, we added online ordering so our customers can skip the line allowing you to enjoy more time to relax. We have learned a ton and continue to improve our online service and menus. In 2021, we offer delivery through our own online page. You can also use Door Dash’s platform to purchase pickup or delivery. Have you signed up for our loyalty program? For every $8 of spend, you receive a star. After 10 Stars you receive a FREE sandwich, wrap, salad, or container up to $8. If you are a first time customer, we offer $.45 ice cream on your first visit. This includes soft serve and hand dipped in a cone, cup, or even a milkshake. Help us spread the word as this is the best kept secret in Athens Tennessee. We are so thankful for all our customers and appreciate your support.
In July of 2021, we acquired The Village Café and Creamery in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. The Village Café and Creamery offers premium coffee and ice cream. Obviously, Gatlinburg is one of the top tourist destinations in the world and will help us expand our brand of quality and service to many more customers. Some months we see over thirteen thousand guests a month from all over the globe. We love meeting new people and being a small part of their vacation.
Our charities we love to support are Coordinated Charities of Athens (coordinatedcharites.org), Appalachian Bear Rescue (appalachianbearrescue.org) and our local schools.
