excellent meats but not baked beans

Service was fast, accurate and nice. Good quantity of meats for the price. We had bbq beef and a bbq pork plate. Plain hushpuppies and cole slaw good. Baked beans werd like out of the can. Food was served piping hot.

We really enjoyed our meal here. The ribs were standout good. the fried pickles were also amazing and the best fried pickles I have ever had by a long shot. The hushpuppies were good both sweet and jalapeño and the chicken bites were very good. I would definitely visit this place again. the service was fantastic. Very satisfied!

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.

Friends suggested this smallish place with simply outstanding barbecue and we enjoyed every bit of it. Nice selection of pulled pork, ribs and chicken along with hush puppies, collard greens and fried ochra. Yummy yummy !

Just ate there for lunch after a morning of adventuring. Generous portions - we'll be eating leftovers for dinner. They have lots of awards on the wall for good reason. Pulled pork was great, collards almost as good as mine (and I'm told that's saying something) will definitely recommend and return.

We stopped here for lunch today and it was great. I convinced my wife and friend to try the fried pickles. They were delicious and enjoyed by all. Even though fried, the pickles were not at all greasy, which is what we found for other fried foods as well, such as the hush puppies. We all had the platter with... More

Went to Okie Dokies for the first time today based on recommendation when visiting Black Mountain. I have eaten a lot of BBQ in the last 30 years in western NC. This was the best I have had with no sauce added. I ate the pulled pork plate without sauce! Not only that, the hush puppies and fried pickles were... More

Had lunch here with 4 adults and 2 young children. We wanted a casual place with some good NC barbeque, unfortunately we were totally disappointed with the food. First we ordered the popular fried pickles and an order of jalapeno hush puppies. The pickles were tasty but there was a deep puddle of grease that made all the bottom layer... More

Today I ordered my usual vegetable plate - have eaten here many times happily before - today it was inedible. Black eyed peas so overcooked they were beige mush and completed saturated with slivers of meat this vegetarian couldn't easily pick out. Collards were swimming in oil/grease? and way too much pepper. Macaroni and cheese was not a casserole anyone... More
