As with my review of Moe's, I'm spoiled by being from Austin where fantastic BBQ places litter the area. This place had good pulled pork and wings. The chicken was totally not worth it, nor was the brisket. Stick to the pulled pork and slaw and you'll enjoy it.

Luella's has great bar-b-que but also has homemade gormet side dishes. The slaw is very unique and the potato salad is exactly like my mom makes. The squash casserole is to die for too! It was packed out when we went later in the afternoon so I guess everyone knows how good it is. It is great for children too.... More

Ate here on a weekday night. Really busy so you may need to book. We sat at the bar. I had the pulled pork and smoked turkey. My husband had the ribs. Sides were mac and cheese and coleslaw. Really good. Hushpuppies were delicious. The various sauces were fantastic. And meal reasonably priced.

Small establishment but absolutely delicious BBQ! Chopped pork and brisket both tender and flavorful! Sauces are great! Mac and hoop cheese yummy! Calico beans yummy! We got our food to go on our way out of town, wish we could have stayed to have one of the many local beers! 2nd time here, will continue to visit when I'm Asheville!

My husband and I had our first visit to North Carolina. The hotel staff suggested we try Luella's and 12 Bones for good barbeque places. We ordered the 2 meat plate (where you get to choose two different meats and two sides) so we each ordered the ribs and sliced brisket (our waiters suggestion) and my sides were the potato... More

Great BBQ at a great price. The atmosphere and decor was warm and inviting. Very unpretentious. Our waiter was friendly and had great recommendations. Next time I'm in Asheville, I am going back!

We went here on a recommendation and was not disappointed! My hubby loves Carolina style BBQ and, since it was his birthday, he got to choose where we went. Somehow the staff overheard that it was his day they even gave him a cupcake that he happily devoured. The mustard & vinegar sauces were SO good I had to buy... More

Great BBQ dried pork ribs & beef brisket! But not a comfortable place to sit in. To-go maybe a better idea!
