Went here for lunch and had BBQ brisket. The portions were generous and the sides are excellent. Try the sweet potato fries.

We had 'Phil's Sampler' it came with pulled pork, chicken and beef brisket. All the meats were tasting but pretty standard in flavor with a large portion size. Downsides: The mac and cheese side and coleslaw were both pretty basic (similar flavor to what you'd find at a grocery store. Also they wouldn't substitute sides for our platter, which seemed...

The big thing here was the sauces. They had mustard-based, vinegar-based, ketchup-based, and mayo-based bbq sauces, and they were all great. The bbq itself was pretty good too, and there was a ton of variety on how to eat it (spuds and such).

Great Bbq, fun atmosphere, nice people. What more could a person ask for? Clean restrooms. All the food we had was excellent.

Was here for my first visit. My hubby comes here when he's in the area. Ribs were amazing! The brisket was tender. Loved the BBQ beans! The Carolina Red sauce was our fave. Not a big fan of Cole slaw...Too much celery seed. The tater salad was ok. Lots of seating. Will be back.

If you are expecting North Carolina BBQ this is not it! Just off I-40 in Black Mount is a really neat restaurant. It's decorated nicely inside and seems to be run by a nice staff. Oh but if only the food was good. The chicken white meat was really dry and too smokey. The brisket was tender but was more... More

We really enjoy BBQ and since this is the only BBQ place in town we have tried Phil's several times and you just never know how the food is going to be. We have been disappointed enough that we now go to a little place in Asheville named Webo's.

If you ever wanted to eat great BBQ, and have very friendly service, this is the place for you! The food is very tasty, and the service is friendly and accommodating. I would recommend anyone traveling to Black Mountain to give Phil's a visit!
