I met some local folks here when I was visiting Asheville from out of state. They picked the restuarant as it is one of their favorites - they are recent college graduates and I am old enough to be their mother.We waited over an hour (after a bit of a hunt for parking on top of that) and then were seated outside - under a heated awning to be sure. I knew the reputation as great southern style food with a twist so wanted to order the most southern sounding thing which turned out to be chicken on biscuits with red eye gravy. I didn't realize we'd be getting biscuits as the bread, too. The first biscuit was tasty, especially with honey and the jam/sauce served in a squeeze bottle. (The bottle kept getting plugged up and I couldn't tell what flavor it was beyond mixed berry until I unscrewed the top and discovered what looked like blueberries inside - why they serve a whole berry jam in a bottle with a narrow slit in the top I don't understand.) Ordering a main dish with more biscuits was overload, however, the chicken and red-eyed gravy part were quite delicious - would have been better with side vegetable I think. The young people all loved the food they ordered (their favorite dishes to be sure) and as the company was good it was overall an enjoyable evening. Still not sure the long wait was worth it though. I might have enjoyed it more if we'd been seated 90 minutes earlier and inside.
