The Split Rail Eats menu offers fun twists on American favorites. They're well known for their Tater Bowls, which feature different proteins and flavors served over tater tots or fries. The Taco Tater looked especially yummy! They offer sandwiches (hot and cold), wraps, and delicious-looking fish tacos; they are also apparently serving the best burgers around. They have lighter fare as well, offering a variety of salads, and even have a Little Rascals menu for younger visitors.
They have a full specialty coffee menu (available all day), and a full bar that serves up delicious hand-crafted cocktails. They also cater, so be sure to keep them in mind for your catering needs if you're local to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. If you love a good brunch, be sure to check them out between 10am-2pm on Sundays. They offer a special brunch menu that looks to die for.
Perhaps the most delightful part of our visit didn't involve food or beverage; it was the time we spent meeting and talking with the owners of Split Rail Eats, Corbin and John. These two brothers opened the restaurant together in 2018, and they're present day in and day out, working the register and serving food, hand to the plow alongside the rest of their staff. They're friendly, kind guys who exude hospitality, and we're delighted to help shine light on this delicious local establishment. Be sure to stop by when you're in town, and tell 'em Mountain Laurel Chalets sent you!
