Nachito's Mexican Restaurant

If you're craving Mexican food, just a 14 minute drive from our cabin is Nachito's Mexican Restaurant in downtown Chimney Rock, NC.  Don't be fooled by the outside decor; this authentic Mexican place has become a favorite among the locals! 

If you happen to be hiking at Chimney Rock State Park, definitely plan to eat lunch or dinner here; it's just a short walk from outside the park's entrance. Nachito's in Chimney Rock Village provides both indoor and outdoor seating.  Be sure to dine out on the patio if the weather is nice; have a leisurely meal while overlooking the Broad River.  

Don't expect the typical fare that you'd find at your average Mexican joint; the unique dishes served here, are all freshly prepared with a twist.  Everything on the menu is really tasty; some of the most popular dishes are the carne asada, chalupas, guacamole, and chicken verde enchiladas.  Give Nachito's a try; you won't regret it.

Point of View

One of the closest dinner restaurants to our cabin, is Point of View.  It's a quick 3 mile drive from the cabin, and has one of the most gorgeous views of Lake Lure.  To enjoy the best view, you will need to be seated at a table next to the windows facing the lake.  Availability for those seats is often on a first come, first served basis.  So call ahead to see if they will allow those tables to be reserved; if not, then arrive shortly after the doors open.  The menu offers a variety of chicken, veal, beef, and seafood dishes.  This restaurant in Lake Lure is most known for their Prime Rib, and pan fried Mountain Trout with toasted almonds.  On Mondays and Tuesdays the Prime Rib and Trout are on special.  Currently, they are only open for dinner; during the busy season they are also open for lunch.  Point of View has a full liquor bar, beer, and wine.  Give them a try!  

Hours:  Mon - Sat 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Phone number:  (828) 625-4380
