Went back in April and it was awesome. its definitely worth the wait in line!! Once food was ordered food came pretty quickly. Lots of options and it all smells really good. Can't wait to go back this November for more. Not open on the weekends unfortunately.

Only open for lunch Plus takeout until 6. Expect lines, they move fast. Fun, casual atmosphere, good service, Cheerwine in the soda machine. Oh, and pretty good BBQ with a variety of rubs and sauces.

Awesome atmosphere. Indoor/outdoor seating available. I told the staff it was my first visit and they were very helpful and explained the menu clearly. Food was tasty and pretty good sized portions. I also hear it's where the President chooses to dine while he's in Asheville.

I don't want to sound bias being from the area but definitely this is the best barbecue house in Asheville. The baby back ribs is my personal favorite which is perfectly done you could taste the juices when you take a bite off the meat. Service is prompt and quick. The prices are very competitive. Recommend this to my friends from out of state.
