They were first out of the gate with awesome barbeque back in 2004, still the best in our book. Always consistent, always friendly...a must!

Where presidents eat. Closed on the weekends. Make the trip, stand in line, and be satisfied. It's in the River Arts district, so have lunch and wander across the French Broad to the liquid center for New Belgium Brewing. Get a flight of beer to sample and play games on the common area or watch the river go by.

12 Bones has 2 locations in the area. Eat where the president and first lady eat when they visit Asheville. Review the clipping of their visit to 12 Bones in our guest information book.

12 Bones catered our wedding! And we still hear from our guests about how much they enjoyed the food. Make time to go and get the ribs!

Really good Bar-B-Que, the place where President Obama frequents when he visits the area. Only open during the week, parking limited. Order at the counter and find a seat. There are often very long lines at lunchtime. Get there by 11:30am if you can.

Serving baby back ribs, pulled pork, beef brisket, and more. Everything is smoked in house and all sides and desserts are made from scratch. - See more at: http://www.exploreasheville.com/listings/12-Bones-Smokehouse/381/default/#sthash.5ZC5U1mb.dpuf

The original located near the French Broad River in the River Arts District has little atmosphere but great food, especially the sides. A "must" if you like bbq. Obama's fav for bbq.

Awesome, when a President goes somewhere you know it has to be good. Plus you can get a very filling meal with leftovers for under 10 bucks. Just get there early there is always a line.
