From Houston to New Orleans to New Iberia to Charlotte to Banner Elk, David, Winston and Lee Ammann offer you their Texas-Louisiana family recipes in a casual, comfortable atmosphere in the High Country of North Carolina.


A brief history ~ 

We began as a corporate catering company in Charlotte, NC serving clients such as the Richardson family's Panther Stadium, Ken Schrader, Dale Earnhardt, Trammel Crow, ProLogis, Childress Klein, and Mary Tribble Creations. 

We opened the Bayou Kitchen in the Elizabeth Neighborhood of Charlotte on August 11, 1988

The Bayou Smokehouse and Grill in Banner Elk was opened in 2003.

Then, in 2006 we opened the Bayou General Store, which adjoins our Banner Elk location.

The Bayou Kitchen in Charlotte has been sold, and is now a restaurant called The Philosopher's Stone. Fortunately, many of our Charlotte guests and friends continue to "drive up the hill" and visit with us here in Banner Elk.
