We shared Phil's sampler platter with potato salad and beans. Both sides were plentiful and quite good. Each of the meats were just okay. Little if any smoked flavor. Chicken was dry. Ribs were well cooked, but only flavor was from the added sauce(s). Not a bad chiicenifmyoubwNtnsome BBQ, considering your options close by, but I'd choose another stop in... More

Every time we work in Black Mtn this restaurant is always a must, the food is always prepared fresh to order and the customer service and prices are incredible. There's always seating and plenty of parking.

My husband and I are both BBQ lovers so we thought we would try out Phil's BBQ Pit. The servings were huge! My husband ordered the brisket BBQ plate and and I had the chicken BBQ.

We ordered Phil's deluxe sampler plate and shared it between the two of us. For us, it was plenty. (We are considered light eaters though.) It was more than enough and I like the variety. The BBQ doesn't have sauce which is great since there were 5 different kinds of sauce on the table. I had not eaten white BBQ... More

We were running around Asheville and then onto Charlotte and stumbled on Phil's. The food, beer and service were good and the price was right. The portions were also quite substantial.

I keep going back to Phil's BBQ for the beef brisket and the baby back ribs. The sides are awesome also.

wasn't sure what to expect about a place off the interstaet with a few large billboards...but it was excellent. Quirky interior with hundreds of ball caps lining the ceiling. Quirky T shirts for sale. Good vaue, excellent food. Good portions, good service. Highly recommended.

Fun place with great food. Lots of selection, even a few choices for vegetarians (fish sandwich, quesadilla, veggie burger, grilled cheese, baked potatoes) - so a great stop if you have both meat lovers and vegetarians in your party. Friendly staff and free wifi to post your review.
