Using natural birds and quality ingredients in our made-from-scratch recipes, we offer delicious American classics like mac and cheese, corn pudding, and collard greens among many more.

I took a friend and his son for lunch. It was a modest amount of food but still cost $38 for the three of us. His 12 year old son used up the thimble of ranch dressing on two chicken fingers and took the empty thimble to ask for a refill to finish his final piece. He was told in no uncertain terms they would not give him any more ranch unless he paid an additional 50 cents. Of course, as a small child in a strange place, he didn't have the required 50 cents add on to what we had already been charged. I think this is really chintzy and have no intention of taking guests or myself back to Rocky's.

We got the tenders meal with 2 sides. They put the chicken on two slices of sandwich bread and it is so soggy. We will probably not go there again. The staff was friendly and the place was clean. I got mashed potatoes and gravy for a side and fried okra. The potatoes were very lumpy with huge pieces of potato that was not mashed. The okra was very hard. My husband got the sweet potato casserole which was good.

Thank you so much for your feedback. We appreciate hearing from you and hope that you'll come back and enjoy many meals at Rocky's. We follow the Nashville tradition of serving our chicken on white bread to absorb the excess juice. Some of our customers forgo the bread once it has absorbed the drippings. We hope you'll come in again soon.

First time at this restaurant. My husband got the lightly breaded chicken tenders and he loved them. I got the three whole wings (MILD). They would have been mild had they not sprinkled them with what I think was cayenne pepper which made them hot. I don't know if this was a mistake or if that is part of their MILD wings. The slaw was good and so was the sweet potato casserole. The service was good and so were the portions.

One of my favorites in Asheville. We eat here fairly regularly, usually takeout. Food is great! The sides are awesome. (Fried mac and cheese is awesome!) ANd it comes out quick.

Be careful with the spice level! When they say hot, they mean it!!
