I picked up dinner to do on a busy Friday night (it was ready in no time) and the brisket was amazing (the platter was too much to eat for me in one sitting). Nice selection of sides and it also came with hush puppies. Liked the collard greens (nice vinegary taste) but the mac and cheese wasn't my favorite;... More

Our family of four opted for Luella's for lunch because of TripAdvisor. We LOVED it! Actually, we loved it so much we got two wing orders to-go in addition to our lunch entres. The beef brisket was a big hit with my son (better than Four Rivers in Orlando). Another had the crazy fries with brisket and beans (he has... More

You have 3 to 4 known BBQs in Asheville. Trust the reviews. This place is excellent. May have to wait a little on Saturday night but worth it.

I'd heard of Luella's but never had eaten there. This evening we stopped and picked up 2 lbs of ribs. They are sold by the lb, not the whole or half rack as many other BBQ places sell them. The order came with an assortment of their bbq sauces. The ribs were very good: tender but not overdone such that... More

I have been eating their brisket for years, starting in their old location on hwy 25. It was very good. Last visit was like I had ordered beef roast badly dried. Talk to the manager and she had some excuses but I will try one more time, if same "goodby forever".

I stopped in for a meal before a business meeting I had at The university. The place has a cool laid-back vibe and the staff was very friendly. I had the chopped pork with collard greens and green-chili-cheese grits. The pork was above average, but not really by much. The collards were ok, but the grits were delicious. The hush... More

We love Bar-B-Que and always look for local favorites when we travel. Luella's did not disappoint! We had the pork plate, pork sandwich, turkey plate and the brisket. My husband requested the brisket lean and dry and on their first try it was neither but our waitress took one look and took it back to the kitchen, returning with a... More
