Hometown Eats: Fox Mountain Gourmet Burgers in Max Meadows

By  | 

MAX MEADOWS,Va. (WDBJ7) It may have just opened a few months ago, but Fox Mountain Gourmet Burgers has made quite the name for itself.

Known for mouth-watering burgers and hotdogs, Fox Mountain has become a staple for many people in, and around, Wythe County.

"It’s the taste," said Ann Manley, a regular here. "I don’t like a greasy burger, so this is wonderful.”

While the menu is vast, the burgers are the real star. You start by choosing the grade of your meat, whether traditional, premium or gourmet. The gourmet meat is from a local farm in Stuart.

"Its grass-fed, grass finished, aged 21 days beef. It’s like the Mercedes of beef as we would call it.”

The types of burgers here are endless -- from Italian and mushroom, to the Mexican burger.

"It’s the twin of Mexican food and burger. It’s the perfect mixture," said Pamela Cardwell, another regular here.

We have to agree with her. The Mexican burger is finished with homemade guacamole, homemade salsa, cheese and peppers.

"Homemade guacamole has a nice spice to it. The salsa. Everything tastes fresh because they’re doing it here, and the beef top line," said WDBJ7's Josh Birch.

The mastermind behind it all is co-owner Kathy Lilly-Whelan.

"I’m a cancer survivor and I believe in healthy food and I love comfort food, so I like to combine the two,” she said.

Fox Mountain Gourmet Burgers is located at 4692 E Lee Hwy, Max Meadows, VA 24360. The listed phone number is 276-764-2049.
