Creekers Barbeque

After going to an auction in Shady Valley we decided to go to Creekers Barbeque in Elizabethton for lunch.  It was wet, cold, and misty weather but still a nice drive.  I have been to Creekers a few times before and always thought it was pretty good.  They have an extensive menu so you can always find something good.  The last time that we ate there they put a little too much sauce on the sandwich so this time I told them light on the sauce.  The sandwich came out with no sauce on it which was really good because then I could put every how much I wanted on it.  Creekers has a lot of different items on the menu and not just BBQ sandwiches.



One of the things that is really nice the menu is that you can get a “meat sample” for $1.99.  That is what we did, I wanted to try the brisket but did not want to eat the entire platter so I got the sandwich and brisket sample.

They also support local sports and UT, except for some UT (former) people.

La Cucina (Mountain City)

We went here a couple of weeks ago and it was great as always.  Not only is it the best Italian food in the area it is one of the best restaurants I think.  I hate to advertise it too much because it may start getting crowded, but on the other hand I want them to get plenty of business and stay open.  Since it is such a small place I made a reservation a few days ahead of time.  When we arrived the place was about half-full, meaning there were about three groups already seated.  Yes inside there are only six to eight tables.  There is also seating outside in and enclosed room with one table.

To start with they bring out bread that was made that morning.  I could make a meal from just the bread, foccacia and ciabatta.  The special that day was ravioli stuffed with mushrooms and truffles.  Three of the five people in our group got the raviolis and it was very good.  When use the bread to sop up the sauce from the main course you know it is good.  I had the Bolognese, which I have had before but it is so good I can’t seem to order anything else.  Donna had the shrimp and noodle dish (I forgot the name).  Actually I have never had anything bad from here.  We had the tiramisu and some sort of meringue dessert.  Both very good.
