A great spot in Asheville for some good ol' Southern food, 12 Bones has some of the best ribs in town. Their Blueberry Chipotle ribs are the best choice if you are looking for something sweet but a bit spicy, but if you can handle it, I highly recommend the Pineapple Habanero. If you are here for something other than ribs (although those are a must when you come), their cornbread and pulled pork sandwiches are amazing. I love the homely atmosphere of this restaurant so much.
