RESTAURANTS IN BLAIRSVILLE GA

MOST UNEXPECTED: NANI’S RESTAURANT

You may not think of Blairsville as a place to get Cuban food…but you should! At Nani’s Restaurant, you’ll find a fusion between Cuban and Puerto Rican, but with a Spanish twist.

Lunch and dinner are served Tuesday and Wednesday from 11am-7pm, and Friday and Saturday from 11am-8pm. They’re closed on Monday, Thursday and Sunday.

For lunch, get the Cuban sandwich delivered on bread that comes straight from Ybor City. Delish! And on Friday and Saturday nights, ask for the special.

LOCAL’S HANGOUT: HOLE IN THE WALL

Union County’s oldest diner located in the heart of the beautiful downtown Blairsville square. Established in 1931, Hole in the Wall is a must-visit.

This is the place we always make time to visit! You’ll want to make it a tradition, too. The food is so good, you’ll swear your grandma made this comfort food. Breakfast is served all day – the country-fried steak and eggs are delicious! They have everything here, from fried chicken and sides to breakfast sandwiches.

And the kiddo breakfast is less than $5.  Planning a day of hiking on a Saturday? Then you’ll be ready for the prime rib special that night (Fridays, too).

FOOD WITH A THEME: THE AVIATOR CAFE

Clouds on the walls and airplanes hanging from the ceiling will delight aviation fans at The Aviator Cafe.

The soups, salads, wraps, and sandwiches are all made with fresh ingredients. You’ll find items on their menu like the Buffalo Chicken Quesadilla, the Greek Gyro, and the Sunrise Wrap.

The Aviator Cafe is currently open 10am-4pm Saturday-Tuesday and 10am-8pm on Friday. They’re closed Wednesday and Thursday.

WEEKDAY BREAKFAST: THE SAWMILL PLACE

The Sawmill Place Kitchen Market uses local produce. You can grab lunch here, but we love it for breakfast – a BIG breakfast.  My family loves the made-from-scratch biscuits with gravy and bacon. Oh – and the baked apples! Go early in the morning or you’ll need to wait – but it will be worth it.

There is also a market here where you can buy local products. The Market is an extension of The Sawmill Place’s farm to table concept. The Market features all things local, whether it’s produce harvested locally in Union County, Georgia Grown purveyors, or artisan goods from the Tri-State area. 

Honey, syrups, jams, ice cream, produce, handmade jewelry, soy candles, goat’s milk soap, beeswax products, specialty coffee & tea, and more.

DELICIOUS COFFEE: CABIN COFFEE COMPANY

You can certainly grab more than coffee at Cabin Coffee Company, but we love this place for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. You pick your roast – South American, African, Indonesian – then select your drink of choice.

Don’t miss the cold brews, too.

BEST SALADS: G&G BAKERY & CAFE

You’ll find donuts, coffee, sandwiches and more…but we especially love the salads at G&G Bakery & Cafe.

Taco salad, Reuben salad, Greek salad, Italian salad…and the list goes on. I’m partial to the Oriental salad, and I love a half serving paired with a bowl of soup. Selections change daily, don’t miss the chicken noodle.

COUNTRY COOKING: COOK’S COUNTRY KITCHEN

You’ll find country fare with a friendly laid back atmosphere at Cook’s Country Kitchen.

This Blairsville restaurant offers real down-home cooking with entrees like: fried chicken and pork chops, pot roast, and turkey and dressing. You’ll also find mouthwatering sides here, like taters and gravy, green beans, cream corn, fried okra, blackeye peas, mac and cheese and more. You won’t leave hungry, that’s for sure!

PIZZA: SICILY’S

Open seven days a week, Sicily’s serves some of the best pizza and salads around for both locals and visitors. You’ll love the affordable prices, large servings, and a super-friendly staff.

They even serve breakfast here Tuesdays-Saturdays from 7:30-11am.

BBQ: JIM’S SMOKIN’ QUE

Jim’s Smokin’ Que is the place to go for awesome barbeque in Blairsville. We love the PIG-a-NIC family packs that you can take with you on the lake or to your cabin.

They’re only open Thursday-Sunday, so plan accordingly. When the weather is cooperating, you can work off those ribs by playing an affordable round of mini golf right on site.

SEAFOOD: MIKE’S SEAFOOD MARKET & GRILL

Forget the white tablecloths and fancy wait staff…counter service at Mike’s Seafood Market & Grill is quick and easy and keeps the prices down on great seafood.

Shrimp, fish, hushpuppies…all delicious with hearty portions. Not a seafood lover? No worries – steak and chicken also make the menu here. And for the little picky eaters, there are also chicken tenders on the menu.

ITALIAN: MICHAELEE’S ITALIAN LIFE CAFFE

Gorgeous food with hearty “Italian Grandma” selections is what you’ll find at Michaelee’s Italian Life Caffe.

There are great chicken, beef and seafood options – just make sure you also get a pasta…nothing can compare to their homemade selections.

LATIN: LALA’S KITCHEN IN THE MOUNTAINS

Featuring dishes from all over Latin America, Lala’s is a world tour for your taste buds! You’ll find sandwiches like The Venezuelan, Chicken Guacamole, and the Puerto Rican Club, as well as entrees like Cajun BBQ Shrimp and Meat Pastitsio. Sides include items like Tostones and Cuban toast.

Lala’s is open from 11am-7pm Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, and 11am-8pm Friday and Saturday. They’re closed on Wednesdays and Sundays.

FOR YOUNG KIDS: RIB COUNTRY BBQ

You’ll find great BBQ for the entire family at Rib Country BBQ. Kids ages 12 and under get a drink for free with their meal.

Tired from a busy day of hiking or exploring? This is a great place for lunch or dinner. Hungry adults may want to try the Feast for Two…pulled pork, beef, half chicken, and ribs, plus sides!
