Phil's was close to Black Mountain and the food was great. We had a sampler, BBQ triple slider and a burger. Everyone thought the food was great and the local craft beer and cider were thirst quenching. Would highly recommend.

I'm from Alabama and love and know good BBQ. I love BBQ from the Deep South but love trying other types as well. I like the mustard based Carolina BBQ. I had pulled pork, slaw, and baked beans. My other half had a fish sandwich...More
