I had a Philly from Asheville Sandwich Company today and it was delicious! Piping hot, ooey-gooey, with a lot of savory flavor and a nice soft bun. A very enjoyable sandwich and experience all around! The fries are unique in that they are potato-chip thin and very crispy. Very good! High marks all around!

Fam. This food from The Malvern Asheville was bangin’ AF. I got the chicken nugs, a salad, and the “Crunchburg Supreme,” which is one of the best burgers I’ve had in 2021 so far! Burger of the Year contender for sure! Delivered fresh, hot, delicious, and on time by Kickbackavl of course.

[ That is a seasoned tostada shell you see on this burger. Adding the “crunch” to Crunchburg! ]

Mad props to White Duck Taco Shop for the packaging as well as for the tacos! Check out these excellent taco-specific boxes! (Although, two hot dogs, two eclairs, two twonkies… lots if potential here. And yes I said twonkies.) I don’t care what the snobbies say, I love me some White Duck tacos! Never had a bad one. ?❤️? Delivered fresh, hot, and delicious by Kickbackavl, of course!

What is the oldest restaurant in Asheville? It is not The Med! How much did they pay you to publish that? Why don’t you go back to where you came from and let Asheville be Asheville not some place that you want it to be.

So? What is the oldest restaurant in Asheville? Little Pigs is apparently the oldest outside of downtown, and as far as I know the Med is the oldest in Downtown. Either way, you don’t have to be a dick about it.
