Not good at all! Very expensive, bad Q. Ribs may have been boiled some or completely. Hard to tell because the sauce covered up any flavor the meet may have had. Had the "sliced" pork versus "minced". Couldn't taste the meat because of the sauce....More

When u walk in to this place you will automatically see that it is not well maintained. There are ceiling tiles missing & the floors are filthy. The back stair deck that leads to the picnic tables was rotting & needed replaced before someone falls...More

If you want good mouth watering BBQ, then you must eat at Duncan's. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but it's well worth the the opening the door to this intimate little restaurant. It's small and there aren't a lot of frills, but...More

AMAZING food. best view outside in the town right there on the bend of the river. Make sure you plan it on the weekend as sometimes they are closed on weekdays. Family run place, so it is very laid back.

This is a small Restuarant on the river. But if you want great BBQ then this is the place. A little off the beaten path, but so worth the trip. We take our bikes when we go. It is a great ride out of Asheville...More

Stopped here because we were looking for good barbecue. The food was average to good, but the view was amazing. We had pulled pork sandwiches with 3 sides. for $7.00 each. Sandwich was good, potato salad (if it was store purchased was good), baked beans...More

Everything in this restaurant is from a can! It was expensive and you completely serve yourself, which I could have lived with if the food was good but it wasn't. Please don't waste your money or time.
