Soul Food in Asheville
Besides the Moose Cafe, J & S and Cracker Barrel, where might we get a meal tomorrow that will have good collards and black eyed peas for my husband that will also serve other cuisine so that I might partake in the meal also (I can't tolerate the thought of black eyed peas).
there's not much open today, you can find out whose open by going to airasheville.org, that's asheville independent restaurants website and there is a special holiday hours schedule. At first glance it looked like only the Grove Park Inn and local bars with food were open. They do have the phone #s posted as well, maybe you can call and ask if there are any food specials featuring these dishes.
I'd try Ed Boudreaux's BBQ.
