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

I'm pretty picky about barbecue, so when I crave it, I usually end up smoking my own. Lucky for me, Okie Dokie's has lots of other tasty options on the menu. On my last visit, I tried the wings, which were juicy, well-seasoned -- and plentiful. For sides, I chose collards and black-eyed peas; it's always a good thing to... More

Searching for a great BBQ restaurant, I asked someone at Trader Joe's for their opinion. Okie Dokie's was their choice and I AGREE. Food was delicious and the service fantastic. The pulled pork was the best I can remember. Prices were good and I wish there was one near my home

Had BBQ for diner. The pulled pork sand which was great. I got the sweet sauce and it was delicious. Side mac n cheese was ok. (Dropped rating to 4). Coleslaw was very good. Beans were ok but for the most part pretty good. Should give it a shot. I will post a pic of the menu below.

This unpretentious B a restaurant is outstanding. It started as a food truck and the owner had such success with his fantastic bbq that he opened a restaurant. We had a combination plate with beef, pork and pork ribs. They have sauces on the table: sweet, mild and vinegar based. This bbq is terrific!! We both decided by the end... More

If you want to eat some incredible BBQ in the Asheville area, this is the place. Period. Our advisor at the Asheville visitor's center recommended it and we are very grateful for that. The location was convenient as we were headed to the nearby Blue Ridge Parkway after lunch. Okie Dokie's is easy to find and there is parking out... More
