Made a short trip to Asheville and read up on our options here (as we always do) before going. Here are our impressions;
White Duck Taco is definitely worth going to. We had 3 tacos (white duck, fish and black bean) as well as chips with 3 fresh salsas and a couple of iced teas. Out for less than $20 (before tip) and every pleased with the quality.
Louella's BBQ. Had a light supper of ribs and sides one evening and it was good. Since we used to live in TX and now live in CO it's nice to get back to SC style ribs.
Moose Cafe. Neither of us are big fans of the "country breakfast" concept but this was good, although (as I think others said) they seem to be too liberal with the salt. Biscuits were good and the apple butter (which I haven't had in 45 years), while not what I was used to was good.
Had the lunch buffet at the Deer Park facility as the Biltmore. Normally I don't care for buffets but this was the "Thanksgiving" dinner (week after Thanksgiving) and it was good. It was "real" turkey instead of the "factory produced" turkey roll. I looked over the carving station before committing to make sure. For $18.00 per head I was happy with it.
I have friends that go to Asheville every 2-3 years but I don't see any reason for us to do so. We did enjoy ourselves and even got up to the Grove Park Inn. Spent an hour or two looking at the entries in the Gingerbread house contest and had a drink. We looked over two of the restaurants and the prices didn't look as high as we expected. But we weren't very hungry so we had the light supper at Louella's.
