Fastop Market #309 is located in Murphy on what is locally known as "the four lane". While the highway number may change, this road goes from the Ocoee White Water Center in Tennessee to the Nantahala Outdoor Center, running right through Cherokee County. We're the perfect place for a road trip to take in the mountains where North Carolina begins, so visit our Cherokee County Welcome Center for free local maps and fuel up at Fastop Market! Stop by to fill up, grab a bite, and ask about their loyalty program at 650 US Hwy 64 West in Murphy.
Whether you crave something salty or sweet, Red Brick Deli's got your back...literally. You can choose from a variety of sandwiches, bagels, and salads with a side of your choosing, but we can't go without recommending the potato salad. The portions are more than most can finish in one meal, but they have to-go boxes so save room for dessert. The brownies and cookies make great options if you're in a hurry to get back to work, but if you have the time, that pie is life-changing!
As we all look forward to the long weekend, may we be reminded of the true purpose. While many of us appreciate the sales and opportunities to gather with friends, Memorial Day is more than the weekend that kicks off summer and white clothing. The holiday was originally known as Decoration Day following the Civil War, evolving over the years into our Memorial Day, always falling on the last Monday in May. Please join the men and women of American Legion Post 96 at any or all of the following opportunities to commemorate American military personnel who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
Well known for their wine dinners, Murphy's Chophouse offers lunch and dinner daily, as well as a Sunday brunch. Many enjoy the outdoor patio and bar, but there is also a private room that is perfect for showers, business dinners, and celebrations. In true Murphy fashion, the Chophouse maintains that casual mountain vibe, so enjoy a taste at the 5th Annual Forks & Corks - Local Savor, then make reservations for an evening on the patio in downtown Murphy.

It may take a while, but with each visit you can enjoy the company of locals and meet visitors, perhaps even ask a God question, and before you know it, you'll officially become a Beervangelist. We recommend the Giant Pretzels with Guinness cheese or the Shepherd's Pie, paired deliciously with a craft beer. Get your ticket to the 5th Annual Forks & Corks - Local Savor and be sure to visit the Parson's Pub to see what they're sampling on June 6th at The Hackney Warehouse in Murphy!
Hoppy Trout Brewing Co. was built by a couple passionate about craft beer. Thomas, the Master Brewer, spent three years practicing his recipes every weekend until his wife, Kristin, insisted the mounting kegs of beer be shared at last. Hoppy Trout is now a well known and respected establishment in Andrews, with their delicious craft beer at a variety of eateries throughout Cherokee County and Western NC. You can get a taste of Hoppy Trout Brewing's locally crafted beer at the 5th Annual Forks & Corks - Local Savor.
