Visit Bonnie And Clydes Drive-In, The Small Town Burger Joint In North Carolina That’s Been Around Since The 70s

Travel the back roads in North Carolina for even the shortest of distances and you’ll likely discover hidden treasures around almost every turn. This is especially true when it comes to the tiny town of Bakersville (population: about 500). In addition to being a thriving and charming little artists enclave (there are loads of world-class galleries here), it’s also home to a small town burger joint the locals have called a home away from home since the 1970s.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
