We got the tenders meal with 2 sides. They put the chicken on two slices of sandwich bread and it is so soggy. We will probably not go there again. The staff was friendly and the place was clean. I got mashed potatoes and gravy...More

One of my favorites in Asheville. We eat here fairly regularly, usually takeout. Food is great! The sides are awesome. (Fried mac and cheese is awesome!) ANd it comes out quick. Be careful with the spice level! When they say hot, they mean it!!

Yes, the hot chicken is hot! HALLELUJAH THE HOT CHICKEN IS HOT! The breading is generally both the right consistency and thickness. Not too greasy, and incredibly flavorful. Also, the corn pudding and macaroni and cheese are very good. Enjoy it!

Serving deliriously good fried chicken and southern soul food, Rocky's prepares "hot" chicken with the spice level any way you like it from plain to extra hot. Using natural birds and quality ingredients in our made-from-scratch recipes, we offer delicious American classics like mac and cheese, corn pudding, and collard greens among many more. Mouthwatering desserts include banana pudding and coca cola cake. We make everything fresh, in small batches, for a difference you can taste!
