Clean dining room with friendly staff. I was almost tempted by the awesome looking roast beef but, decided to try the Chopped Brisket Sandwich which was delicious. The sides of Yams and Coleslaw were also very good. Free soft ice cream for dessert! I will...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

Roast beef is fantastic served with 2 sides and a roll or hush puppies for only $8. Service can be a little slow but food is worth the wait.

We stopped here for lunch after spending the day at the arboretum. For $6.95 each we had a huge plate of pulled pork, sides and dessert. Very good food, great server, if we lived closer this would be a regular stop.

Pleasantly surprised by the service and affordability of this little restaurant. The service was good, and the food was surprisingly great!

We had heard that their fried chicken was the best. The chicken is fried when you order it, so you need to allow 30 minutes for them to fry it. It is worth the wait if you have time. They do have pulled pork, roast...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
