• “Mealtime is a mighty serious business down South.” –Andy Taylor

    Aunt Bee was always known for her cooking, and like Aunt Bee’s kitchen, Mount Airy is a vibrant scene for Southern, mouthwatering cooking. However, Mount Airy’s restaurants are just as varied as the characters in Mayberry. Restaurants in Mount Airy run the gamut from down-home cooking to barbecue, to Asian cuisine to upscale dining.
