Asheville, NC - Mon, 08/5/13 3:48 PM

I will be staying for two nights in Asheville, NC in a couple of weeks.  We will probably get in too late the first night to go anywhere but after spending the day walking around the Biltmore, I am going to need some BBQ.  Is there anywhere within an hour or so that anyone would recommend?  We are going to Keaton's the next day for lunch on the way to the coast
 
And while I'm at it, we will be staying in Holden Beach for a week if anyone knows that area as well.
 
Thanks.

I'd recommend 12 Bones http://www.12bones.com/menu.html    It's in the arts district and very casual - anything from tanks and shorts to 3 piece suits.  If you don't like picnic tables - this is not for you. Don't worry if you see a line, as you order at the counter and they bring your food to you. The staff and customers are friendly.
They have a good selection of sodas, local beers, and sauces. The brisket sandwich with 2 sides makes a very good sized lunch. Greens and Slaw are really good sides. I make Mac and Cheese as a main dish as my Grandmother and Mom did, so I didn't care for theirs. They close at 4:00 or when they sell out.

If you cannot find BBQ that meets your needs, try Tupelo Honey.  They have two locations, one in Knoxville and the original in Ashville.  I think you will find them very good.

I agree with 3 Olives about 12 bones. I really enjoyed it. Have a Cheerwine with your meal!

Thanks for the suggestions. 
 
12 bones looks great but I'm not sure we'll be able to make it by 4:00 and seeing the pictures of the Friday lines on Yelp makes me think you need to get there early.
 
The Tupelo Honey cafe might be a good alternative as it looks really good too.

Tupelo Honey is excellent, as is Early Girl.  My favorite Asheville BBQ, however, is Luella's, about two miles north of downtown:

Luella's blows the aforementioned away. Simple enough.

That does look good.  However, after scrolling through this excellent blog, I am now tempted to go to the Indian place that is reviewed.  It looks amazing.  Sounds crazy to go to BBQ country and get Indian but man that looks good.

You mean Chai Pani?  Oh, it's terrific.  They opened their second location here in Decatur, and I'm going again one day later this month.  Love it to pieces!
 
I'm glad you think my blog is excellent.    Tell yer friends!
