Great friendly atmosphere

The staff here really went above and beyond my expectations not just my server Liz who was amazing but also the kitchen staff. While I was paying my check a young man from the kitchen waved and thanked me for coming in and asked how everything was. I thanked him for the great food and also for... read more

I came over this past weekend and was I pleased with the professionalism, and kindness the servers and the kitchen staff presented my family with. My mother is disabled and one kind young man who worked in the kitchen opened the door for her and our family with a welcoming smile and great suggestion to the ribs! With a great... More

A little dinky diner. Nothing special from the outside. Inside, always busy. North Carolina people are picky about their pork, and this where they go when they are in Swannanoa. Last night my friend and I had a half rack of pork ribs and a mini rack, plus the first hushpuppies I ever liked, greens, cole slaw, and beans. We... More

This place seems like a snall diner in a quaint town when compared to the neighboring food mecca in Asheville. However you will be thoroughly surprised when you discover this place. I have lived and traveled in the south for many years, this place steals the show in terms of food quality. The ribs literally fell off the bone as... More

Been eating here for years and love it. The barbecue is good and the sauces are great. If you like hot barbecue sauce ask for the habanero sauce.

Man oh man. Okie Dokies is the best. Anytime I think barbecue, I think Okie Dokies. The pulled pork and beef is delicious. They have just the right amount of smoke flavor to them. I like to add a little sauce to mine. That's just my personal preference. Any sides you go with are outstanding. I lean towards their red... More

Our expectations for great BAN have been high since traveling through Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee and North Carolina. Finally, we arrived at Okie Dokies. The ribs were smoked perfectly, very tender, juicy and meaty. The only reason I didn't give an excellent rating - the beans were nothing to talk about. However, the Jalapeno fritters were so good, wish I had... More

Our party of four arrived approx. 6pm for dinner and barely slipped into the last available table. The waitress was very friendly and sincerely made us feel welcome. We sampled the fall off the bone ribs, smoked chicken and pulled pork sandwich, which were ridiculous good. Dinners come with a couple of sides and hush puppies. They also offer an... More

We were staying in Swannanoa and wanted lunch somewhere nearby. We chose Okie Dokies based on the reviews and were not disappointed. The smoked turkey and pulled pork were excellent. Be sure to try the smothered potatoes.

I love their sweet barbeque sauce. The food is great and the portions are generous when feeding four or more at a party. They also have a great stew as well.
