Had the chicken sandwich and cole slaw. Delicious. Can't wait to go back. Busy but got our food fast.

Good selection of food and quickly prepared. Fried chicken specialty is tasty. Medium hot would be ok for most folks but that's not exceptionally hot. The corn pudding is good.

Rocky's is my favorite place to get chicken! I can handle hot food and usually order the top of the third level (Rocky's hot). But I felt daring one day and did ask for a sample of the Foothills. I am glad I did not go with that! Too much heat for me!

This place has quite a variety of chicken and when they say hot chicken they aren't kidding! It's a little trip out from Asheville, but worth it. Huge portions and a full bar with some interesting craft brews on tap make for a great combination.

Great chicken and sides! You can get the chicken with different levels of hotness. The macaroni and cheese, collards, pimento cheese grits and sweet potato casserole are very good.

Great food, love the Cheerwine on tap. Wait was a bit long for what time it was, they seemed to be more concerned with internet orders. Second time there, will go again.

My husband and I ate here on a mid-day Sunday. We didn't wait long to order or to receive our food. I loved the variety of sauces/flavor ranging from no heat to make you cry heat.

Chicken tenders are really boneless breast meat cut into good size strips. Both the tenders and chicken pieces on the bone are tender, juicy, and flavorful. The sides are great. Okra done the way it should be, best restaurant mac and cheese ever, fried pickles are crispy, onion rings are great. None of the fried food was greasy. People are... More

Description
Serving deliriously good fried chicken and southern soul food, Rocky's prepares "hot" chicken with the spice level any way you like it from plain to extra hot. Using natural birds and quality ingredients in our made-from-scratch recipes, we offer delicious American classics like mac and cheese, corn pudding, and collard greens among many more. Mouthwatering desserts include banana pudding and coca cola cake. We make everything fresh, in small batches, for a difference you can taste!
