Nut-n-Fancy in Tellico Plains is minutes away from favorite East Tennessee motorcycle routes.

Just so there's no confusion, the sign outside the restaurant says 'bikers welcome.'

"We're on the Cherohala so we get a lot of bikers and they're great customers so we wanted to make sure they knew they were welcome," Nut-n-Fancy owner Deborah Snyder said.

Motorcycle riders say they appreciate the hospitality at Nut-n-Fancy.

"It's good food and a lot of people hang out together just like comraderyship," Keith Pitchford said.

Keith and Bonnie Pitchford moved to Tellico Plains from Colorado.

"I used to ride horses and I went from horses to horse power and it's a whole lot of fun," Bonnie said.

Mitch Millsaps said, "When I come here you'll run into a lot of friends like if they're local I know about all of them because it's a small town. Just a gathering place."

"We love bikers," Deborah Snyder said. "They're great customers. They are always friendly. They're always smiling. And they're always in a good mood."

She opened Nut-n-Fancy about two years ago.
It offers breakfast and lunch every day except tuesday.

"It's pretty much a country menu. We have things like meatloaf and country fried steak and white gravy and apple pie and that kind of thing and then we have a regular menu where we have beef tips, ribeye steaks, chicken breasts," she said.

She wants customers to know the food is made from scratch with fresh ingredients and everyone is welcome here at Nut-n-Fancy.

Mitch Millsaps said, "A lot of places say bikes welcome and instead of bikers welcome. So I wondered if those places are friendly to the bike but I don't know about the bikers."

After lunch it's time to ride.

They strapped on helmets and headed down the Cherohala knowing they can come back where bikers are welcome.
