"Proper in Boone, NC"
For good southern cuisine with a twist go to Proper in Boone, NC! They have a delicious set menu that varies from day to day and their specials are always to die for. I go for the tangy pulled pork and decadent fried chicken but stay for the creamy mac and cheese and lively atmosphere. The best way to experience Proper is to go for Sunday brunch - get the sweet bacon (it's crunch and gooey and salty and sweet). The restaurant itself is tiny (and probably doesn't meet the demand of hungry Appalachian State students) and is just off the main street in downtown Boone (King Street - right next to campus).
