First they have soda, and the burgers looked good. I got a bottle of water and it was top notch. It was a bit out of place though. I think it was not the real lunch counter, and the fact i was in a fancy...More

Although I just had a Coke, the soda fountain experience was still there! Red vinyl barstools, grill and dessert menu, lots of ambiance. Don't miss it!

As I reviewed previously in the Woolworth walk, grab a bite to eat/drink imagining yourself at the lunch counter back in the post WWII days. The choices are diner specials, but very tasty.

We stopped in for an afternoon snack and their sandwiches were delicious and like a step back into the 50’s soda fountain shop era.

Just like the olden days! So exciting to see yesteryear still alive and going strong! (Except for the staff) Old style, old prices,... don't worry---fresh food. Lunch for two was under $10. The staff's enthusiasm was under as well. In short, a trip down memory...More

The service is really good here, but there are sometimes long lines. The soda-fountain atmosphere is nice, and the sandwiches are good -- straightforward sandwiches, not the strange srichacha-laden oddities so many places in Ashevile substitute for creativity. I think of this as an excellent...More

Nostalgia returns to one of Asheville's historic landmarks, "F.W. Woolworth," established in 1938 and restored in 2001. It now boasts a fully operational Old Fashioned Soda Fountain built to resemble the original Woolworth Luncheonette. A 50's flair was used in the design to further compliment the vast array of local art. The Soda Fountain is in its original location and is open daily serving many of the original menu items: including hot dogs, BLTs, club sandwiches, coffee and, of course, old fashioned ice cream sodas and sundaes.
