Loved eating here recently while in Asheville. There were a number of items that looked really good. Great selection of draft beer also.

This is my second visit to EVG. Neither trip has disappointed. it is obvious that this is a local hang out spot as many people know each other by name. Everyone is SUPER friendly. This last trip, I had the Mt. Mitchell Meatloaf......OMG!!!!! Best meatloaf EVER!!!!! More Meat than Loaf, the seasoning is perfect, and fried onions top it off.... More

This restaurant was close to our cabin and recommended by our Airbnb hosts. We tried the tiger wings, both breaded and nonbreaded, and they were some of the best wings you will ever have! Also had great pimento cheese, if you like smoked gouda. It's on the east side of town but worth the trip.

Cozy eatery with bar and dining - brunch on Sundays is a weekly thing! Sports on the TV's and an awesome bartender, Jules, is a great concoction for fun! Best chicken wings around - Tiger sauce! Menu has so many options, huge servings, unique character, always delicious! Don't miss it!

Thursday about 8 pm, not crowded, nice and relaxed, friendly waiter. We had a smothered hamburger steak and "chicken gyros" which were both pretty good. (It was marinated chicken chunks with onions, triangles of pita bread, and a sort of unauthentic Greek salad). Good drinks. Quiet group at the bar. Nothing was bad, but confusing. Starting with the name "East... More

We enjoyed trying the Highland Brewery, just up the road and decided to give these folks a try. The menu is "Greek centric," thus AWESOME! Everyone throughly enjoyed their meal. I had the Mediterranean Chicken, but sub'd the chicken for shrimp. It was VERY tasty and satisfying. We ALL highly recommend the East Village Grill!

Stopped for lunch looking for a great Reuben. Found it. Tender, well prepared and delicious. My wife had the Chicken Caesar Rollup. It was of the same quality as the Reuben. Service was courteous and friendly.
