Food

Restaurants, ranging from commercial chains to traditional, eclectic and Appalachian-fusion fare, ensure that you won’t go hungry while visiting Letcher County.

Both country cooks and visionary chefs work culinary magic with delicious, fresh ingredients grown and harvested from local farms and transported to Letcher County tables within hours, in large part due to the City of Whitesburg/Letcher County Farmer’s Market.

From a perfectly seared steak, to international cuisine, to a bowl of soup beans that are so good you’ll want to jump up and see if your mamaw is working in the kitchen, local-owned eateries are established and revered institutions in Letcher County. Custard stands and drive-ins dot the roadside, each with their own local specialty, whether it be a soft-serve cone, Bosco sticks, or in the case of Joe Pack’s in Isom, fried chicken, which has been lauded as the best the Commonwealth has to offer.
