“BBQ, yes, but Brunswick Stew-outta this world”

Okie Dokies Smokehouse
Ranked #1 of 15 Restaurants in Swannanoa
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Barbecue
Restaurant details
Reviewed March 5, 2014

It's teeny-tiny compared to most restaurants but BIG on taste. This very local place is also a very popular catering venue at many Asheville area events - and for good reason. Tender, tasty ribs that don't hide behind the sauce. But that Brunswick Stew - Yummmm!

I've tried BBQ everywhere in the South and Okie Dokie's is terrific. You get a choice of BBQ sauce, but this is a place where you really don't need it because the meat is so amazing on its own. The pickle chips are a great way to start. The only downside is that there was no dessert to speak of, but I was too full anyway!

I recommend the beef and spicy hush puppies. I thought the black-eyed peas were a little dry and the macaroni and cheese was a little too liquid for my tastes. The portions are generous.

We ate here a couple of times on our last vacation to Asheville about a year ago. It was great, but on our visit this past week, not so much. The pickle chips were very greasy and for some reason my smoked chicken was deep fried (and very greasy). The service was friendly but not enough for us to return.

We was visiting Asheville and decided to give okies a try! Food was good! Service was fast and plenty of parking !! Was fairly loud inside because of the size of the building but would definitely go back !!!
