Yummy BBQ

They are a short drive from Ashville's downtown. The food was delicious, the staff friendly, and the food came fast. They have in door and out door seating. They have good jams playing in the background, this ads to the dinning experience. The prices are equal to the value and quality of the food... read more

Excellent pork, cooked over wood the way it's supposed to be. Not some sugary, ketchup-laden "barbecue" but just simple, savory meat. The side dishes are excellent, as is the service.

For some reason people in the mtns cant make decent bbq & I don't like vinegar based but I'm not really picky about my food. I got chicken & pork take out & it wasn't even good enough to save the rest for later & my dog didn't want it.

We anticipated the Carolina style seasoning sauce. This BBQ features the mild & sweet. Do not confuse this with Kansas City BBQ. It is not. The beef is wonderfully lean and tender. Tip: The "SIDE" that comes with a sandwich is SMALL. The beef plate was good. Love the red slaw.

We stumbled across this amazing little bbq place when we were in the area looking at another store. We were so happy we did! The ribs are amazing!!! The best I have ever ate! The bbq beef was just as good while the bbq pork was good - it was not the best. The service was fantastic and our waitress... More

We had eaten here once before and enjoyed it, so when we camped at Mama Gertie's we tried it again. The fried pickles were very good and the hush puppies were also good. BBQ slaw was peppery and the white slaw was not too mayonnaisy. Sweet tea was good also. The service was the downfall. Nice enough, but dranks empty... More

Whether you dine in, pick up, or they cater, Okie Dokie's is sure to please every time you visit. The BBQ is delicious. The sides are the perfect compliment or can be a full meal in themselves. The service is prompt and the servers are friendly.
