connectivity at Chilhowee?

Would anyone know if T-Mobile 5G is solid in Chilhowee or WiFi at the Corner Café? Happy trails everyone!

Not sure what you're referring to as Corner Cafe. Only thing in Chilhowee is Hometown Convenience Store. Probably just call them and ask about Verizon

Kim, Hi again, and thank you! WiFi at Home Town Convenience, and so much more. Today, Dusty made us be at home with handmade fresh sandwiches and sides, and a wide choice of ice.cold.beverages - shop local!

The interwebs have also useful sites such as
coverage was good in Chilhowee, cheers, Acoustic Al

Just wanted to update anyone riding the Rock Island. We are open Monday thru Saturday 7:30 am to 7:30 pm. We have sandwiches, snacks, drinks, our kitchen will open soon for daily special. We have an eating room you can sit and rest in, our bathroom is open to the public. I also offer free ice and water bottle refills from the tap. Come in and see us! We are the first top east from Pleasant Hill that has services so it is a great place to take a break after riding over 20 miles. Best Wishes, April

I stopped in on Saturday and bought some snacks. Can't wait for the kitchen to open.

I was there in early May. Mostly convenience store type food, but they do have a microwave. They do have a nice room to sit while you eat. Was hoping for a meal, but got something to drink and a substantial snack.

Planning on being there Monday June 26th will you be open and serving lunch? If so do you know what you are serving?? There will be 5 of us stopping.

Wouldn't it make more sense to call the store and ask? Alexander really was on to something there.

Yes, 10x better idea to call.

Chilhowee Corner Store in Chilhowee

I am very glad to find the store open yesterday on our ride. Chilhowee is the perfect spot for a Corner Store to get a refreshment or snack riding on the trail. Hope many riders will support the store.

This place was a life saver when we biked through here on our Katy Trail trip in early April 2017. There's not really anything else in Chilhowee but this place has a sufficient selection of snacks and drinks and even a little area with tables and chairs to eat.

The woman working there (maybe the owner?) was very nice and said that they are planning to start stocking some basic bicycling supplies. Sounds like they are really going to try to cater to the cyclists.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR KIND WORDS. Yes I am the owner and I very much look forward to catering to the cyclists in anyway I can!
