Memories and Inspiration for Food, Travel and Life
Yes, I’d say I’m from North Carolina. We moved to NC when I was 14 from New York state. There were many things to get used to, but one thing I loved immediately was Carolina BBQ with its vinegar sauce, chopped pork and coleslaw on a bun. I don’t know what could be better. So, when I took my boyfriend to 12 Bones in Asheville, NC and he absolutely loved it – I knew I had found a good one. Winning over the president is one thing, but a Frenchman? Yes.
The ribs fell apart, the corn pudding was delicious, the macaroni and cheese hit the spot, they even have a selection of sauces so if you aren’t into the classic vinegar you’re OK. They’re so successful, they only need to be open for lunch!
The setting isn’t bad either – with a creek running down the side, trees over head, and a nice outdoor sitting area to enjoy the NC sunshine.
