we were looking so forward to good southern bbq ribs, etc. and were more than dissapointed by the below-average food. the ribs were overcooked and dry. the brisket was on the dry side also. both were served warm. the macaroni and cheese "soup" was awful. the baked beans were right out of the can (and, yes, i even saw the cans).
12 bones is in the outskirts of downtown asheville, in the arts district. it's actually a former gas station. it's claim to fame is that obama has eaten there.
the way it works is that you wait on line at least about 15 minutes, order your food, pay for it, get your own drinks and flatware, find a table, and just about the time you do all that, your food arrives. i am shocked at the high ratings that this restaurant receives. unless we had an incredible off day, the food was nothing less than sub-standard. i would not recommend this restaurant.
