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.
As a retired Chef I was disappointed. Several mistakes in cooking. I ask for Prime Rib cooked rare. Received medium. Ran out of Prime Rib so offered a rare Rib Eye steak. Again cooked medium. They offered to bring a fresh Rare Rib Eye. Ok it arrived rare but so over salted that I could not eat it. I think the grill cook was getting even with me. Very noisy and a general aire of confusion by very young servers. Bartender served me yesterday's wine. Yuck. Not a good night. This was my second visit and was even worse than the first. Rated 2 Star and $$$ by ChefLars.
When I get a craving for some great lip-smacking Ribs this is where I (and many others) go! This is an unassuming, very casual place with friendly staff and picnic table seating - but worth the trip and lines. I love the dry salt & pepper rub with a sweet tomato sauce on the side to dip and the brown sugar wet ribs. And don't forget the corn pudding and other sides. Yum!
Chef Lars, You're an idiot! I've been coming to Asheville TRH for several years now, and have never had a less than EXCELLENT meal. I build custom homes and I would never write a bad review about another builder. My dad always said, " If you don't have something good to say about another, best to say nothing at all ".

The place is devoid of any pretensions. The food is the centerpiece here. Love personally the baby back ribs - perfectly done. Yummy! The beer is very cold too.
Our go to restaurant when we are craving bar-b-que. Staff is always friendly and attentive. They also do take out.
It is okay,I do not see all the hype food ok and atmosphere ok
