They have the best bbq ribs and hush puppies I have ever eaten. Absolutely delicious, the prices were reasonable, too, and our waitress was super friendly. Will definitely be stopping by here any time I am anywhere in the vicinity.

12 Bones has gone down hill (sad to say), Buxton Hall gets the tourists; but the locals iget Okie Dokies and that is fine by me. It's not right in Asheville so the drive has to be worth it and it is if you want good BBQ, especially pulled pork. Sides are ok about the same as any other BBQ... More

Average BBQ, but I prefer Texas style BBQ. Beans were great. Ice tea was a little weak. Clean place and good, friendly service.

We enjoyed the combo plate with St Louis style ribs, instead of Baby Backs, and pulled pork. Choice of sides were good ole country sides, large portions. Really enjoyed the jalapeño hush puppies. Craft beers on tap reasonably priced. Service was more than great, thank you Casey.

The hushpuppies were the best part of the meal. The smoked chicken caught us off guard. It was cut into chunks instead of being shredded. It had a good flavor, just difficult to eat on a bun. The mac and cheese and slaw were average.

I was in town on business and my customer suggested we have BBQ. Overall the BBQ was good but the best part was the spicy hushpuppies. We had to eat out side because the inside was full and that says a lot for a Monday afternoon. I think I would have enjoyed the place better if we had been able... More

With a classic menu, great fried food, pulled pork with a great dipping sauce, and a decent price - this is a must stop by for a delicious and quick (sometimes messy) bite.

Their pulled pork and their special sauce are a great combination for an exceptional barbecue and a wonderful cole slaw to compliment the barbecue

Love their barbecue and the fixin's. Large helpings which means you don't have to eat the rest of the day. Love the "Red Wagon" for lunch or the pulled pork barbecue plate for dinner. People travel far and wide to enjoy Barbecue from Okie Dokies!! You cannot go wrong!!

Thank Gary A
