Asheville, NC

I am looking for the Local Favorites, been around forever. You know the historic landmarks that your dad took you to as a kid type. Diner, BBQ, hotdog and hamburger joints. That are still thriving today. The last of real restaurant Americana, not the new nasty chains.

    many of the Local Favorites have long gone...Grove Park Inn of course almost 100 years ... 5 Points Cafe on Broadway, Moose Cafe - near Farmer's Mkt (but not that great), Tastee Diner on Haywood, ...In Asheville it's not about the old favorites it's about the new, creative cuisine.

        here's a good thread to get you started. It covers the current favorites pretty well:

      FOREVER forever? 'Taint much...
      But Sunny Point for breakfast and 12 Bones for BBQ certainly fit your criteria food-wise.
