This is a really great BBQ place in our small town of Swannanoa, NC about 20 min from Asheville. We have tried a lot of the BBQ joints in the area and like several, but Okie Dokies' stacks up against them all. The staff are super friendly and the service is very good. The BBQ pork is as good as... More

So first things first, the food was great. Solid bbq and a fantastic sides. One of the few places I've been where the sides were better than the bbq. That said, what really made our trip fantastic was the service. These people were so fun and just an absolute treat to have as our servers. Everyone was nice, chipper, and... More

My family and I drove from PA to FL in December. We stayed overnight at the KOA campground right down the road from Okie Dokies. We had a really great meal. My husband and father really liked the brunswick stew. I tried the Little Combo with grilled chicken and pulled pork, and both were great...especially the pulled pork. The girls... More

Meat has obviously been cooked for hours and the ribs have plenty of meat in them! We randomly picked this place from traveling by on I40. Future trips here will definitely be planned. Inside and outside dining environment was nice.

Our family was on Interstate 40 heading towards Bryson city, NC and when we decided to stop and eat. We picked Okie Dokies because it was close to the interstate and it was ranked number 1! We now know why its rank #1. We walked in and the sitting area is small. I think about 9 or 10 tables but... More

I'm a chopped pork sandwich lover and this place did not disappoint! The sides were pretty good as well. Great staff. Very clean and neat dining room.

Ok, so I'm not one to comment on bbq since everyone has their own twist and it's usually fantasic, but this place blew it out of the water. Their pulled pork, jalapeño hush puppies, and fried okra was beyond exceptional. I wish I would have caught the name of our waitress because she was super-friendly, attentive, and really made the...

We stopped here on our way through town, thanks to TripAdvisor, and are very glad we did! We've had good barbecue elsewhere but this was every bit as good as we've ever had. Juicy and perfectly cooked, good beans and slaw. Nothing chewy or crunchy in the meat. Fast service. Just really, really good food. My son ate his sandwich... More
