Spotlight: Damascus Gets Two New Eating Establishments

If you happened to be in town for Appalachian Trail Days seven years ago, you’ll probably remember one of the most memorable places to kick back and enjoy a pizza and a cold beverage - Quincey’s Pizza on Laurel Avenue smack in the middle of town. Now you can relive the past there, which has reincarnated into well...very much what it used to be!

Quincey's Pizza and Backyard Grill

Owners Joel Jerkins and Steven Sweet reopened Quinceys in February. The two have built the establishment into a sports bar atmosphere with a great menu lineup. Both restaurateurs take pride in offering favorite foods with their own personal touch.

There you can find your favorite (pizza) slice, a cold drink, great eats, and most likely other folks you know from off or on the Trail.

Quincey’s Pizza and Backyard Grill
Open until 9 p.m. weekdays and Until 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays
132 West Laurel Avenue
Damascus, Virginia
(276) 475-5753

On the other end of town, the newest addition to Damascus’ eating establishments is Fattie’s Diner, located along the Virginia Creeper Trail.

Fattie's Diner

Local folks fell in love with Fattie’s, which opened on Valentine’s Day. It’s name says it all: if you’ve ridden the trail all day and worked up a big appetite, then they’re going to feed you well.

If you’ve got a hankering for a burger that’s more than just meat, try the veggie-stuffed Fattie Burger. Not only do they specialize in fresh cut fries, wings and onion rings, but you can also get that burger in an un-stuffed version, too.

So when in Damascus, bring your appetite to either new establishment and you won’t be disappointed.

Fattie’s Diner
