Our Favorite Asheville NC Restaurants & Eateries
We don’t like to spend a fortune eating at restaurants but we love good food! Every now and then we like to treat ourselves to dinner at the Omni Grove Park Inn or some of the other highly acclaimed downtown restaurants but this list leans toward lesser expensive local favorite eateries. By no means is this a complete list as we haven’t been to all the restaurants but these are definitely some of our favorites. After dinner, check out our Favorite Brewpubs or our Favorite Music Venues.
Buxton Hall BBQ
Buxton Hall is located in the South Slope part of town. It’s chef was a James Beard nominee. Park at the Biltmore Avenue parking garage and it’s about a 10 minute walk. Get the Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich with Collard Greens!
Park at the Biltmore Avenue parking garage and it’s less than a 5 minute walk. Curate is a highly acclaimed Spanish Cuisine Tapas Restaurant. This is the only restaurant on our Asheville NC restaurant list we haven’t eaten at! Please let us know how you like it.
Zambra Tapas and Wine Bar
Very cool atmosphere and relatively undiscovered. They have excellent small plates for sharing. A short walk from most the downtown parking garages.
Papa’s & Beer
This is a local Mexican chain restaurant but one of our favorites for authentic inexpensive Mexican Food. It’s located on Tunnel Road just outside the downtown district. Also try Mama’s and Beer located very close the Mountain House.
