Wardensville Welcomes Stellar New Restaurant
A tiny mountain town overflowing with charm, Wardensville is nestled within the Potomac Highlands region of the state and is less than a 2-hour drive from the D.C. Metro area. The town continues to celebrate the opening of a new restaurant that is now part of its picturesque main street.
Mack’s Bingo Kitchen
Mack’s Bingo Kitchen serves up elevated dishes using seasonal ingredients from their personal organic farm as well as from other local farms nearby. From fried green tomatoes and roasted beets to a whole grilled trout and local pork plate, this spot will surely leave your tastebuds singing. The full bar can be found as beautiful as the perfectly crafted drinks that rest upon it. Both craft and domestic beers can be found on tap, in cans and bottles, along with wines, cider, cocktails and spirits.
Even better, the restaurant serves as a living classroom for Appalachian youth, providing them with the opportunity to gain experience in the hospitality industry. The junior crew are trained in kitchen and food preparation, cooking and serving as well as hosting and how to interact personally with guests.
More Wardensville Wonders
While Mack’s Bingo is a new shining star, Wardensville is home to an abundance of other local gems worth checking out while in town. Find the perfect read for any age at the town’s beloved bookstore, WordPlay. This cozy spot offers games, puzzles and an atmosphere that will make you want to ‘sit and stay awhile.’ One door down lies Drifters Cafe, an exceptional spot for breakfast, brunch and lunch. From warm cappuccinos and perfectly blended frappes to fresh-stuffed wraps and bagels filled with homemade veggie cream cheese, this is the ideal nook to get some peace or do some work.
Take your coffee just up the street to see the Wardensville Garden Market. That’s right, it’s open all year round! Here, you will find organically grown produce, pantry items and even more tasty bakery treats. Shop a variety of locally-made gifts, American wines and hand-crafted beers at Lost River Trading Post. Along with coffee and espresso, the post offers made-from-scratch pastries from Mack’s Bingo Bakery. Turn your day trip into an extended stay by snagging a quaint cabin at the nearby Lost River State Park.
