We needed to grab a quick bite, so ended up here. The gumbo was spicy and very good. The oyster po boy was average, but filling. Everything was fine, but not memorable compared to other spots in Asheville.

Stopped at Mayfel's for an early dinner. Sat outside since it was a gorgeous day. The chairs were kinda hard and wobbly. I had a Muffaletta sandwich with sweet potato fries. Very tasty. Two different guitar players, one on the corner and one in the...More
