We’re proud to offer a simple menu full of big flavor. Since 1999, that’s been the Old Rock Café’s signature serving. Ask us and we’ll tell you we’re the hidden gem sitting in the shadows of Chimney Rock. Or ask Zagat’s. They put us on their “Must-Try Burgers across the Country” list, and for that we’re mighty appreciative. But our menu goes way beyond burgers. It ranges from creative sandwiches on local bread to salads with organic ingredients—and from leisurely lunches to those on the go.
You’re hereby invited to loosen up your boots, take a load off, and share some stories of the day’s adventures over good food with great people. And bring those four-legged family members—we’re big fans of dogs, too. In fact, we have dog-friendly menu options just for them!
We’re just next to the entrance of North Carolina’s iconic Chimney Rock State Park in Chimney Rock Village, which is just a short drive down some winding country roads from Asheville or a straight shot from Charlotte.
You sure can. Each of our smash burgers come with a side of delicious fries. But if fries aren’t your thing, the Old Rock Café has a wide variety of sides, many good enough and hearty enough to be your main. We offer gluten-free and vegan options for those who need it, none of which fall short in flavor.
Is the Old Rock Café a roadside diner? Maybe. Is it an off-the-beaten-path dining spot you’d go out of your way to get back to? Definitely. Should you and your family give it a try? Absolutely.
