    Slow order process- cold food :(

    Been coming here for years and always liked it, but…. The woman taking orders is so slow. And the slowness is from unnecessary chit chat. The food today was cold and it was noon on a weekday, with only 2 other tables. So sad, as the food is actually good, but when it arrives at your table cold, that kills it. This used to be our favorite spot. Won’t be back.

    It does have plenty of covered outside tables.

    Great casual dinner!

    it was a rainy evening so we looked for somewhere with a covered patio and Luella’s has 2. Plenty of water bowls around. We had the Mac with burnt ends and the deviled eggs and both were awesome. Had a great local cider to go with it.

    Great food

    This is our favorite BBQ place in Asheville. The brisket is amazing! relatively dog friendly as they are allowed on the patio and a water bowl was provided.

    So pet friendly & wonderful food

    We are traveling with a mini Aussie and a Yorkie and found Luellas to be a great pet friendly restaurant. With awesome food (try those deviled eggs, they were bomb)! Plenty of variety. The brisket was amazing and I don't normally like that. Friendly helpful staff as well. It's worth planning a stop for!

    Best barbecue in Asheville

    So amazing that we had to go back for more! My 2 dog family had an awesome experience at Luellas . We were in Asheville for 4 days and in a town filled with great food we had to make sure to visit this very pet friendly barbecue restaurant 2x.
    Once was not enough 🥰

    Fantastic BBQ

    Fantastic food and experience. The server recommended the ribs, brisket and chicken, so we tried a combo. Great recommendation and some of the best barbecue we had on vacation.

    Loved It

    For a bunch of reasons: it was chilly and they have heat outside

    Best food on my vacation!

    I vacationed in North and South Carolina, and this was my favorite restaurant by far for a lunch or dinner meal. Excellent BBQ. Fantastic hushpuppies (we sampled hushpuppies from several places is Luellas had the best). If I lived locally I'd be a regular! Food prices for platters are an extremely good value. But be warned, beverages and desert are crazy expensive! So if you are on a budget go for water and skip dessert. Dog friendly seating in covered porch.

    Happy people and pup!

    The food was absolutely wonderful, and very reasonably priced. Sitting outside on the screened in patio was very comfortable for us and our dog - it was a great experience for everyone! We will definitely be back next time we're in Asheville, even if we don't have our dog with us.

    Humans and Pups Agree

    Adorable restaurant with delicious food and a great pup friendly atmosphere!! Great prices too!!! Our family of 5 has a broad sampling of the menu and everyone was 100% impressed :) Give it a shot and order the deviled eggs while you're at it :)

    Great find!

    We were going to 12 Bones BBQ on a recommendation but it was very busy so we quick checked Bringfido and were so glad we did! Luella's was perfect! Screened in pup friendly porch, the food runners brought out water for the dog and the food was excellent! Free range, hormone free BBQ chicken, fried okra, collard greens and a great IPA from Asheville brewery...perfect!

    amazing food !& environment

    The BBQ tempeh was the best I have ever had. Fabulous beers and very dog friendly. The patio is screened in which is great for any weather concerns you may have.

    Fantastic spot for dinner with the pups

    We had a fantastic dinner with the dogs at Luella's! We were worried when we didn't see many restaurants listed on this site, but we called ahead and sure enough they had a fantastic patio for dog-owners. Highly recommend this spot!
