Dining in  MOCO

Morgan County has a menu to suit all appetites.


Take a seat at The Warden’s Table at an historic prison, bite into an award-winning fried bologna sandwich in a country store, overload on a locally made pizza, homemade barbecue, a plate full of Mexican specialties, good country cooking, dine creekside with live music, or drive into a fast-food eatery. 


Wash it down with sweet tea, end of the line moonshine, home brewed beer or a cold soda pop.  Something for everyone and offered with a friendly welcome smile. 


Built in the 1920s, Tanners Cafe and Sundries was a beloved business that had fallen into a serious state of disrepair and was in immediate danger of being lost forever. 

Morgan County Tourism Alliance gained ownership of the building in 2019 and on April 22, 2022, Tanners  Historical Cafe  opened her door to greet the future.

BBQ smoked low and slow, the way good BBQ should be. Home of the Sweet 29 sauce. We are a family operated business that’s just getting started & we hope to have a permanent establishment one day. 


The Warden's Table restaurant  at Historic Brushy Mountain Prison in Petros, TN, offers a variety of southern food, serving up everything from classic BBQ plates and loaded potatoes to BBQ nachos and cheeseburgers. It's Southern cooking with a twist and hospitality at its best. The Warden’s Table couples tasteful, fresh-daily dishes made with the highest-quality ingredients that emphasize southern cuisine.


With plenty of room for families and large groups, food is served cafeteria style so you’ll be in and out before you know it, giving you time to browse in our gift shop or spend time touring the prison.


Located just a couple blocks off the Wartburg Courthouse Square, Tokyo Grill offers Japanese specialties like Gyozo, tempura fried foods, Bento boxes and sushi rolls. They offer party platters and a limited amount of Chinese food under the Chef’s Specials.

The Brushy Mountain Market is the place in Petros to get groceries, gas, and great cooked-to-order food.  Offering dine-in or takeout, owner Neal Patel and his kitchen crew, led by head cook Penny have great burgers, sandwiches and soft-serve ice cream.  Conveniently located near Windrock and Brushy Mountain Prison on Highway 116 in Petros, Brushy Mountain is a great place to make sure you are gassed up and well-fed before tackling the Devil's Triangle loop when visiting the area.

As you enter Morgan County on Highway 62 from the east, the first restaurant that greets you is the Coal Creek Mountain Grill, owned by Frank and Roberta Milen.  Offering a family-friendly casual dining experience, Roberta proudly serves made from scratch batter-fried fish, burgers, and many other delicious foods.  Head in for $1 tacos on Taco Tuesday or try a Mountain Burger, a favorite of ATV riders at the nearby Windrock Off Road Adventure Park.
