Couple of things: Even if you're hungry, order less than you think you want. Even if you like spicy things, order down a notch on the spicy meter. I was told that the "mild" chicken "only" has cayenne pepper sprinkled on it. They offered offered plain "seasoned" chicken which is what I ordered. The sides are great and I saw... More

This place is always busy when I drive by it. Took me awhile to try it out. We went on meat pie Monday. You walk up to the counter and order then you sit down. So, naturally I had to try it. Smoked chicken, andouille sausage squash tomatoes and pepper jack cheese in a croissant style hot pocket meat pie.... More

We asked for a fried chicken restaurant recommendation from the owner of a local shop where shopping (sorry I don't remember the shop's name). This was where she sent us and we were so glad we asked! There are lots of choices for the level of heat you want on your chicken, and great selection of home style sides. Everything... More

We went to Rocky's with 14 family members, 8 of which were children, and we had a ball! The chicken was delicious, but so were the veggie sides, which is all I got, and the biscuits and gravy would stand tall even beside Cracker Barrel! We took three tables, which was the entire little side section, the food came quickly,... More

A favorite chicken cafe' in Asheville for us and many others, especially if you like hot and spicy selections. It has "no limit to heat" if that is what a person likes. Great service too!

This place was delicious. The wings were cooked perfectly and had the best sauce on it. Also had the tenders, sandwich and several sides. Everything was great. Next time I want to try the fried pickles and banana pudding.

While visiting Asheville our friends introduced us to the best fried chicken in the area. This will definitely be a regular stop when ever we come to town. Great choices for everyone.

Got into town late, and this place was recommended by the hotel clerk. FANTASTIC chicken! We got the "mild" which still left a little zing on the tongue! Sides of mashed potatoes and greens to round it out. REALLY flavorful and affordable.

Description
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!
