We have our “easy finds” when it comes to eating on the southside of town. Places like Pomodoros Italian, Acropolis Pizza, and Tupelo Honey are smack dab in your face. We love them. But lately we have been frequenting the “off the beaten path” foodie scene in south Asheville! Sweeten Creek, the shortcut road used to avoid the dreaded traffic on Hendersonville Rd, has led us to Rocky’s Hot Chicken Shack, Pon’s Thai Cuisine, and of course… the famed 12 Bones Smokehouse. Sometimes you will even catch a few food trucks here and there on this strip. Of course we wish Frank’s NY Deli would have stuck it out in their old simple location. Their sub sandwiches were amazing back then!
Anyway, we were hungry the other day. We had been running from meeting to meeting from south Asheville to Hendersonville and forget to eat. Luckily 12 Bones was in our path and they saved us from starvation. Not only with food, but delicious comfort food! I quickly ran to the counter and ordered a barbecue pork platter with cornbread, mac and cheese, and corn pudding. Sounds pretty corny? Well it was, and oh so good. We then jumped back in the Nissan and headed out to the next meeting. Lots accomplished during the time we were out hitting the road. 12 Bones was a pit stop that made the day that much better. Thank you!
