Food in Damascus and Abingdon

The website ("powered by" local Channel 11 and the Bristol Herald Courier newspaper) carries a 22 July 2007 restaurant semi-review for eateries in Abingdon and Damascus, Virginia. It's headlined "Eateries serve up ice cream, cornbread, sandwiches and more to hungry hikers and local residents" and written by Whitney Miller.

She says that "Known as 'the friendliest town on the Appalachian Trail,' Damascus’ broad and welcoming food network backs up its reputation for hospitality." Then she lists 13 spots to eat there. A couple places in Abingdon get a longer treatment, and at 12 miles from the Appalachian Trail, they're a hitch or shuttle away, but it's still good to read about these "several unique and notable eateries [that] have cropped up along the popular Virginia Creeper Trail over the past several years."
