delighted with a variety of dining options. Many establishments, such as Dogwood Restaurant and Jerry's Family Restaurant, offer Southern-style cuisine that tastes

Craving a burger? Vinton has two great spots to satisfy
your appetite: Bob's Restaurant and Dogwood Restaurant were both awarded "Best Burgers in the Blue Ridge"
from Virginia's Blue Ridge in their search for the region's
tastiest patties. For those searching for unique ethnic op-
tions, you can enjoy Thai food at Red Jasmine or a tasty
margarita at Rancho Viejo.
Vietnamese food is a great new category to try in Vinton, thanks to the upcoming grand opening of Asia Gourmet. Owner Howie Nguyen and his wife Tien are excited
to be part of the Vinton experience. They have friends
in the area who enjoyed Tien's cooking, and would ask
about opening a nearby restaurant. When Nguyen finally found the ideal space that would house his restaurant, he was excited about bringing Vietnamese cuisine
to the area.
