Meal was average. Food is always consistent. Service was great. Owner is hands on. Menu needs an upgrade.

They have "kabobs." I think of a Kabob as a meat and vegetables on a stick. What I got was meat on a thin and rock hard piece of bread (like in the picture) and a couple ounces of green beans with a poor excuse for a salad. The only good part of the meal was the meat and it... More

We've been going to Something Different for over 10 years. This is our go to place whenever we want the best food and service in Asheboro. Everything on the menu is fabulous and delicious. The wait staff is always attentive and I've never had a empty drink glass.

It was awesome. Ribs rocked. Half rack was huge. My friend had Kabobs they were excellent too. Homemade hot "salsa " was excellent too. Baklava was spot on too. Bravo!

We had a great meal here. My salmon was perfectly prepared and service was excellent. It was busy but there was no waiting at any point. Prices were very reasonable for the caliber of the food. The owner himself was there and took our payment when we left (it was a pay-at-the-front place). He ensured we enjoyed our meal and... More

Clean and neat facility. We dined here last weekend and it was great food and service. The restaurant is always clean and in order. Would recommend if you want unique food with a pleasant atmosphere without high pricing for dinner.
