Chameleon Soul Food (Asheville)

My husband went there today - just opened on Merrimon. It is a meat-n-three style soul food place. Menu includes fried or smothered Chicken, grilled shrimp, smothered pork chops, fried fish, BBQ pork and Ribs. Sides include mac and cheese, butter beans, collard greens, etc and meals come with cornbread or a biscuit.

He said it was the best fried chicken he has eaten in years. Also gave big thumbs up to the mac and cheese and said their greens even blew 12 Bones' away. He said the biscuit was good but next time he will try the cornbread.

The best part was he said the owners were very, very friendly and spent a lot of time talking to him (he was the only one there), telling him funny stories like how you can't get fat on their food if you are happy on the inside (an interesting theory!) and talking about how they are all old family recipes. They brought him over samples of the dessert, just to try. He loved them.

They are open 6 days a week incl weekends (closed Tuesday) for lunch and dinner. Cards say chameleondjrestaurant.org
