Many of us remember going to Tijuana Fats in Blowing Rock way back in college! The food left a little to be desired, but it was fun to gather there with friends. Well, years ago, that restaurant became part of my college memories as it closed for good.
Highlands Blowing Rock is a family owned restaurant. (One of the owners went to high school with my husband!!) Non smoking facility and kid friendly. They have an outdoor patio and are open 7 days a week from 11:00am until 2 am. They have a kids menu that has chicken tenders, hot dog, grilled cheese, fruit, and more.
For the adult Highlands serves speciality burgers, salads, veggie burgers and portobello sandwiches and salads. They also have some seafood. The menu is chef-driven and extremely creative and fresh, including awesome sweet potato fries and fried green beans. YUM! For the sweet tooth, they have milk shakes and fresh desserts. Little Pea and I stopped by there the other day for lunch. She devoured the thick hotdog, and I got a tasty burger with sweet sauteed onions.
I also can’t wait to go to Highlands at night sometimes, for a girls night out! Sometimes, they do theme nights, like 80’s Night. so…
