Mi Pueblito is a local Mexican favorite. There is one location in Rutherfordton, and another in Forest City. The owners, Cindy and Rodrigo, have been in business for over 20 years. They serve standard Mexican fare; this is a great choice for families on a budget. The restaurant can get packed at lunch time; however, service is generally very quick. Both restaurant locations offer a full service bar: margaritas, mojitos, domestic and imported beers, wine, and mixed drinks. The Rutherfordton location is only 3/10ths of a mile from the Kid Senses Children's Museum, and 6/10ths of a mile from the Bechtler House.

Gregory's Original Restaurant is located in Rutherfordton, NC. It is right down the street from the Bechtler House, and the KidSenses Childrens Interactive Museum. Locals love to eat here. Favorites are the wings, grinders, homemade salad dressings, and salad bar. They also serve steaks and Italian dishes; however, the Italian dishes do not garner as good of reviews as the favorites. You can even order up to 100 wings if you desire, but be sure to call ahead if it's over one hundred. Prices are great for families on a budget.
