20 minutes outside of Mount Airy is Fancy Gap, Virginia, and a deli so
good that I almost have a mind to keep it to myself. The Gap Deli is a
stone’s throw away from the Blue Ridge Parkway and is worth the drive

daily with a side of cornbread. Cissy’s Meatloaf Sandwich, served with
Pepper Jack on grilled sourdough, is some kind of heaven." Read the
