We sat outside because there weren't really any tables inside to accommodate 6 people which was fine as it wasn't a hot morning. We ordered our drinks(2 OJ, 3 waters and 1 coffee). This took the waitress two trips to get right. We ordered our...More

Took grandkids to The Local Joint. Had pancakes, scramble plate, traditional, canjan chicken biscuit and all were good. Grandson ate his biscuit, then the rest of pancakes, so he was not hungry at lunch.

Good spot to stop for a burger. Many interesting burgers on the menu. I had the local burger and the wife had the black bean. Both were great. Looks like a good place for breakfast.

I visit fairly regularly and enjoy it very much each time. Family and friends agree it's the best in Asheville!

The Local Joint was recommended by a local AirBnB that we stayed at last week. I was so thankful that we tried it out as the breakfast was extremely tasty and affordable. It's attached to a gas station so not necessarily some place that you...More
