This was our first trip to Okie Dokies Smokehouse. We were visiting our daughter at her college and she recommended it to us. The restaurant was very clean and the staff was friendly and efficient. There was a great view of the mountains from where we sat. We all had the BBQ pork which has a great taste. There was... More

Great place, lunch is always hopping! Highly recommended! Closed on Sunday, so make sure you visit one of the other 6 days.

This place is a half mile from my house, so I dine here a lot. Let me first tell you what I don't get and why: the pork bbq. It's not bad, I just happen to like Fat Tracy's in Spindale, Phil's of Black Mountain, Moe's of Asheville, and the Lake Lure Smokehouse better. Likewise I don't get the ribs:... More

We ate here for a late lunch and enjoyed the food. It came out very fast. It's quite casual and you are served on paper plates with plastic silverware.

Found this smokehouse by accident, and so happy that we did! Great service along with the most moist BBQ pork sandwich I have ever eaten. The only thing that prevented this from being an outstanding review for the food was that it was not fully hot all the way through, which based on the flavor and moist nature gets this... More

VERY friendly staff... even at closing. Treat you like family. The BBQ is fine, nothing spectacular. The sauces are nice.

We had the pulled pork plates for lunch. Portions were generous and service was fast. The pulled port was good but lacked the rich smoky flavor that we expected. The baked bean and macaroni side dishes were just OK. Hush puppies were very good. We'll return, but will try the smoked turkey or other choices on the menu.

Swannanoa is part of the Asheville, North Carolina Metroplex. It is about 15 minutes from downtown Asheville. There are wonderful homes to rent in the beautiful Smoky Mountain there. Should you go, and you should, you must not miss Okie Dokies Smokehouse! It is not a big place. It is not a fancy place.It is, however, an amazingly clean and... More

This is just outside of Black Mountain. It is a local place not a chain. As I ate my dinner the locals were coming in. I really enjoyed the ribs. They also have draught beer on tap. I prefer ale so I had Dale's Ale. I liked it.

You can sit on the porch and watch people driving by...or eat inside. I didn't like eating on paper plates, though, but that's part of the atmosphere, I guess. Slaw and beans.
