Asheville reasonbly priced food

Me and my wife are going to Asheville for the weekend looking for reasonable dining options. Not looking for anything fancy or adventurous just not chains. Asian, pizza, burgers, Mexican are all options. We are usually in the Diners, Drive ins and dives kind of places.

  1. "Reasonable" is relative, but here are few options for good, cheap eats:
    1. Papa's & Beer for Mexican (Brevard Road location only)
    2. Doc Chey's for pan-Asian
    3. White Duck for Tacos
    4. Wicked Weed for pub grub (including burgers)
    5. Rocky's Hot Shack for spicy chicken
    6. El Kimchee food truck for Mexican-Korean fusion
    7. All Souls Pizza

      Homegrown is a great choice for Southern/local food - very reasonably priced, killer burger. 12 Bones for BBQ (south location open on Saturday), Luella's for awesome smoked wings. I second White Duck too (in fact it would be at the top of my "cheap eats" list).

      1. re: miss piggy

        Forgot about 12 Bones. I second that one.

    2. I was checking out 12 Bones menu, looks like a place we would like. Going to Christmas Jam at Civic Center any of these close to there.

        Wicked Weed and Doc Chey's are within walking distance of the Civic Center. Most of the others are in the River Arts District, which is about three miles from downtown.

          Homegrown and Luella's a super short drive away in N Asheville. Owners of both are big Panic fans too :)

          I'd add Chai Pani (downtown) if you like Indian

          1. re: Jeff C.

            River Arts District is nowhere near three miles from downtown. Less than a mile, I'd say.

            Edited to add: Pritchard Park to Wedge Brewing in the heart of the RAD is a little less than a mile and a half according to Google.

            1. re: Leepa

              I stand corrected. Civic Center (home of the Winter Jam) to Wedge Brewing is 1.2 miles. (That's what I get for guessing.)

              1. re: Jeff C.

                still, I think your point to the OP was correct. River Arts is great, but only if you're planning to take the car. It's not what I would consider a good choice for walking to.

        2. some friends mentioned Wedge as well since they know I like food trucks

            Wedge has good beer - all seating is outside (except for very limited standing room at the bar) so bundle up if you decide to check it out!

          2. Salsa's for mexican/carribean fusion!
