RUN do not walk to King Daddy's Chicken and Waffles in West Asheville. It is so amazingly good. EVERYTHING was incredible. The staff is fantastic and very attentive. The owners are the nicest people and very generous to the local community. For appetizers we ate the Zucchini Cakes, Sweet Potato Hush Puppies (pour some blueberry jam on it - trust me) and my husband had the Poutine. I had the Korean Fried chicken (crispy fried and tossed with ginger soy sauce, served with pickled radish) with pumpkin waffles and it was beyond amazing. My husband had the Habanero Sweet Potato chicken - it was delicious, but the Korean is the best!!!! Our kids ate yummy fried chicken and waffles. They insisted on getting bacon on the side - big thick pieces. Our daughter is Gluten Free and she loved her GF friend chicken and waffle. Just give them a heads up because it takes a little longer than the rest of the food. King Daddy's doesn't claim to be Gluten Free, just Gluten Less, but she did not have any reactions. We were so beyond full, even with leftovers, so we didn't have a chance to try dessert. What a wonderful addition to the restaurant scene in Asheville!!!!
I was here for lunch with three co-workers (first time eating here for all of us); and, we all Loved our meals. I had the pulled pork sandwich with slaw on it and a side of fries; and, I topped it with the Eastern BBQ sauce. Wonderful tasting pork, and not dry or fatty. The fries were excellent...I do not like "raw" fries, and these were perfect. Service was prompt. We were out of there in an hour, and that includes the time we sat with a signed check on the table just gabbing; so, it was not an hour of order-eat-check please time. A co-worker ordered the brisket sandwich, and she raved; and another raved over the mac and cheese side he had...we were all commenting on the good food as we left the place. I give it four stars only because I wish for less mayo in the slaw, and a vinegar slaw would be great. I will be bringing my family here.
Sunrise Cafe has all the requirements of a great place to eat: clean and inviting environment, friendly and fast service, excellent prices, and exceptionally good food. We live about an hour from Asheville but we eat here as often as we can. Everything I've had is really good and perfectly prepared. Some of my breakfast favorites are their seasoned potatoes, made to order omelets (spinach and mushroom, yum), and fresh fruit cup (available any time). The coffee is always fresh and delicious and they keep your cup filled. Their french fries are perfect, and I don't usually eat fries. Wraps and Greek salads are excellent, and Black Bear pizza, well, let me say they really know how to do pizza! You should try this place if you like home style cooking and good value!
