Harry's Grill and Piggy's Ice

Met the owner, Jeff Thompson, and his good friend Tommy...two of the nicest people you ever wanted to talk to. We spent 45 minutes sharing stories...(good luck with the opening of the museum, we will be back).

Yes. This. Is. Awesome. Didn't eat here because we went past on a Sunday, but it was worth it.

Yogi and Boo Boo.

Harry's Grill and Piggy's Ice

Previous tipsters' claims that the Yogi and Boo Boo statues at Harry's were originally from a California burger chain never sounded plausible to me. I mean, there are plenty of Yogi Bear statues around, especially at Jellystone Park campgrounds, which there seem to have been a number of here in North Carolina. So the notion that a Yogi statue in the mountains of North Carolina originated in California just didn't seem quite right. And it turns out, it's not. I ran into Harry when I stopped by recently and, according to him, Yogi stood in front of a restaurant in the nearby town of Lake Lure for over 25 years, and before that he was at a neighboring campground. As for Boo Boo, he was cast locally from a mold made from one of the statues of the North Carolina-based Yogi Bear Honey Fried Chicken chain. So both statues are North Carolina natives and not California transplants. Harry's a great guy, by the way. He gave me a pretty lengthy tour of both the restaurant and the next door antique shop, even though it was Sunday and both businesses were closed.
