Bike riding hound in Asheville, NC

Professor Salt | May 17, 200501:30 AM     6

This July, I'm riding my bicycle along with about 35 other people as part of an endurance tour that starts in Atlanta and ends two weeks later in Portland, Maine. Each day, we'll ride an average of 100+ miles, and we'l be real hungry for local flavor by dinnertime. That's 16 towns, 16 opportunties to find some great local food. Even if it means the best option in town is a Dairy Queen chili dog, any intel is better than no intel.

I'm going to start a separate thread for each city we're staying in. I don't have hotel infomation yet, so I can't say specifically where in town we'll be, which I realize is challenging in the bigger cities we're visiting. We will not have cars to drive around, just our bikes, so please recommend places inside town limits (unless something's *spectacular* within, say, 10 miles)

* Dinner recommendations only (lunch is provided every day & we can't stray much from the route anyway)
* Any cuisine is fine, but ideally, something that you're real proud of as a local.
* Any price range is fine: roach coach to fine dining.
* This happens in mid-July, if you can think of seasonal tips so much the better.

I'll post a separate thread for each city we're staying in overnight.
