“great food, but really busy”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

The food is so good, but often the wait is too long for us. They do such a good job serving local products, which I really like.

“AMAZING FOOD!”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

This was definitely worth the wait. I have heard so much about this restaurant, I knew we had to visit. It was a cozy farm to table restaurant with fresh food. We tried the bbq pork sandwich which was great and some different foods like the black bean and sweet potato cakes, baked lima beans, and sauteed cabbage. Different combinations of food but everything was phenomenal. Fantastic Southern hospitality service too!

“Breakfast in Asheville”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

As a group of four we made an early morning of it, the local news is the lines can quickly build. Well balanced traditional fare of southern country style breakfast of eggs, bacon, grits and a biscuit. We also had a very nice ham, cheese and tomato omelet. Asheville eateries are intense about using local, fresh and in season products to the maximum extent possible, Early Girl supports this enterprise. Public parking is not to far away and free for the first hour then just one dollar an hour after that, a real plus in the downtown environment.
