Puerto Nuevo Newland NC
110 Linville St, Newland, NC 28657
(828) 742-1900

They seriously have the best food I’ve ever had , and they make one heck of a mean Margarita! It is a bit pricey, but the food is well worth the expense if you want a cook-free evening out with great food. The location in Newland doesn’t have Liquor, just beer and wine so if you’re looking for a great margarita you’ll have to go to the other locations, but this one still has top notch grinds!
