First time in North Carolina, and this was the best food. Ribs were perfect as was all the food. Can't wait to go back!

Circle B is unassuming from the street sitting next to a gas station, but don’t let the looks fool you. This is a gem of a restaurant frequented heavily with locals. Good pork barbecue heads the menus which includes excellent pork chops, carved roast beef,...More

You will eat the best BBQ and ribs in all of WNC. All BBQ and ribs are smoked and the sides are really good.

Almost a hole-in-the wall location BUT right across from the Asheville airport. HOWEVER, the quality of the BBQ and the friendly wait-staff makes it worth the trip. Too, it's also on top of I-26 for quick in-and-out. They offer platters at a pretty good price...More

Don't let the location of being beside a gas station fool you. This is real BBQ. Ribs where the meat FALLS off the bone. Tender, juicy and done right. Baked beans and potato salad. This place is legit and they want you to go away...More

Circle B has the best BBQ in the area. The sides available are also excellent and many to choose from. BBQ is served buffet style. The fried chicken is the best you'll ever eat. You'll have to wait about 20 minutes for the chicken, but...More

Phone orders should be no hassle at all. They take your chicken order anyway since it is not precooked. You pick the sides and they will serve them for you off the buffet, I think, so the order is ready to go when you... More
