Winter bouldering gets cold.
Beer- Moccasin Bend brewing.

Breakfast- Aretha Frankensteins, but be prepared to wait, and bluegrass grill (the best, but not open Sundays)

Great stuff. Keep it coming.

I just wanted to throw this in..(My opinion)
On beer crafted in Chatty..
Mchales is a bit out of the way and smoky but easily the best beer in town. They are now serving it at the Tavern. Or stop by and get a growler of the Bloody IPA.

Greenlife/whole foods has been enforcing the parking lot to prevent carpooling so heads up there.

Aretha's is all hype, just like Sofa King (my opinion only). . . Especially since you can get the batter at any Bi-Lo. Blue Grass, though, is dead on. CraigS.

Coffee probably falls under breakfast so I'll suggest Greyfrey's. Excellent coffee that is roasted onsite. Closed on Sundays :( Steve Colegrove

Beer:

Tremont, BrewHaus, SturmHaus, Hair of the Dog, Riverside (for purchase, not dining)

Pizza:

Lupis...pizza joints are kind of a bust here IMO. None are great at all.

Mexican:

Ovalle(best overall, but pricier than others, BYOB as well), La Altena, Taqueria Jalisco (please support this place, amazing food, BYOB) used to be the taco truck that parked at La Discotheque.

BBQ:

Shufords, hands down.

Breakfast:

Ugg...breakfast is a bust here too...make your own.

Carpool:

Bi-Lo at Signal Mountain (for Prentice Cooper areas) and north of Chatt climbing areas.


Lastly: there is a HUGE food truck culture developing here as well. Famous Naters, Local Slice, etc are always downtown and at events locally. Support these guys. They make amazing food with quality local ingredients and don't charge a ton of money.

There's also something about a few hours spent at Merv's after TWall...and the cheeseburgers are served up fast. Pool tables, pitchers of beer, and interesting scenery seem fitting for a Sunday morning at Suck Creek. BHMBen

Maybe we should stick to recommending routes and areas instead of beer and pizza. We'll try to keep you from getting lost and let you explore the city on your own to discover what your favorites are...

Thanks for all of the feedback.

Greenlife/Whole Food is starting to monitor the parking. Mill and Mine around the intersection of Signal Mtn Blvd and Dayton is Bomber..but so is Bilo and Wal-mart. Rockery Press

good ole Merv's... interesting folk there.

Can't believe no one has suggested Champy's Fried Chicken. Best fried chicken anywhere and any place that sells 40's to go along with your meal I'm a fan of.
