We stopped in for lunch while on vacation and found outstanding bar b que. The brisket quesadilla was really good, as was the mustard sauce. Highly recommended.

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!

Traveling I-40 through Asheville and stopped in Black Mountain NC for lunch and stumbled on some pretty good BBQ. I live in Lewisville NC and am a very much " Lexington Style " proponet of BBQ. I tried the Barnyard Sandwich with chopped chicken and brisket and surprisingly it showed up with American cheese and pickles on a hoagie bun.... More

I have been enjoying Phils brisket for eight years now and will no longer go there. I'm so sad that on Sunday, Nov. 6, I went in for brisket. It was very slow and my meal came up in about three minutes which is rare for Phils to have an order ready that quickly. Unfortunately the reason for the quick... More

So, I've been to Black Mountain many times over the past few years and never tried Phils. Took my sweet mother to the Mtns in Oct. and our first lunch stop was at Phils. What a great lunch, we ordered and was surprised how much food we got for the money! Nice place, thousands of hats on the ceiling and... More

Awesome little BBQ restaurant. Really loved the decor. I had a pulled chicken bbq sandwich. The meat was a little dry but once I added my eastern style bbq sauce it was just right! French fries were good, views from the deck were amazing and just what we needed as we departed Western NC!

I am all of 300 miles or so from Phil's BBQ, but I dream of going back. I am a BBQ fanatic from South Carolina where we have great BBQ and loads of sauces. But when I found Phil's, I found a place to rival any BBQ restaurant in SC. I especially loved the pit cooked chicken and the shredded... More
