Great experience at Never Blue. Super eclectic vibe and great menu options. Gypsy Cheese was an excellent take on a pimento cheese-type appetizer. Definitely order the brownie for dessert! Great service and food was delicious.

“Tacos OK, but overpriced.”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Found this place on vacation, had good reviews on some websites. I ordered takeout for three tacos - the buffalo shrimp, cuban, and blackened fish. I knew as soon as I picked them up that I would be needing to supplement my dinner with some more food (after walking through the mountains all day, I was hungry). The buffalo shrimp taco was the best of the three, with a well balanced salty/creamy flavor. The blackened fish was kind of disappointing and bland. And the cuban chicken was ok, but nothing to write home about. I was a bit surprised that $4/taco didn't deliver better results. I've had cheaper tacos that tasted better and used the same quality of ingredients at other places. I was also surprised in the total mass per taco. Each seemed to be lacking a few more pieces of meat, and some had too much sauce. I suppose if you want to pay a lot to eat really light, these tacos are for you. But as far as value goes, I think Taco Bell has better value.

“Good, Hearty Lunch”
Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

After a day of zip lining this was a great meal to recharge us. The atmosphere was nice and the setting was unique right in the Main Street in Hendersonville. The side dishes were out of the ordinary and delicious. We have the burger, the Cuban and BBQ, all of which were top notch.
