Fried chicken: Asheville restaurants represent in Garden & Gun's best-of-NC list
ASHEVILLE, N.C. (WLOS) —
Unsurprisingly, Asheville makes a good showing, with local restaurants showing up as five of the 20 N.C. restaurants that make the cut.
Editors selected the following local restaurants for their fried chicken:
- Buxton Hall Barbecue (South Slope)
- King Daddy's Chicken and Waffles (West Asheville)
- Newbridge Cafe (North Asheville)
- Rhubarb (downtown)
- Rocky's Hot Chicken Shack (West and South Asheville)
Here's what Garden & Gun had to say about Newbridge, a small, cash-only best-kept secret on Weaverville Road:
“Wednesdays only. They serve their delicious chicken with all the right stuff: slow simmered green beans, homemade slaw, and potato salad. It’s family-reunion chicken in a place that feels like your grandma’s cluttered kitchen, if your grandma was a bluegrass music freak into memorabilia.” —Ronni Lundy
