The Purple Onion Restaurant in Saluda, NC

The weather was perfect yesterday so we took a quick trip to Saluda, NC. This quaint little village has coined a fitting slogan: "Where the foothills end and the Blue Ridge begins..."

Saluda, North Carolina

Six of us had lunch at the popular Purple Onion restaurant...

I've heard a lot about the Purple Onion from friends in our area, and just as they said, the food was terrific and the prices are reasonable. The atmosphere is exactly as I expected, a great combination of historic, fun, and a little bit cozy...

Several of us had the chicken club sandwich. It's delicious -- a thick, roasted chicken breast, apple-wood smoked bacon, baby Gouda cheese, lettuce, tomato and Caesar mayonnaise on a sourdough baguette.  (Sorry no pictures of the club - we were too hungry.)
