We live close to the Local Joint and have eaten there often. I am sorry to report that something has really changed. It has gone from great to sort of OK. What is most disappointing is the inconsistencies now happening. Just the other day we had the romaine salad which used to be a favorite of ours. We always order... More

A variety of omelets, other breakfast choices, with an option of toast or really good grits. Lunch choices span sandwiches, burgers and more. Nothing fancy, but well done and tasty. Friendly service in a diner-like atmosphere.

We came here the second day of our four day stay and loved the breakfast so much we came back two more times! Decent coffee but excellent eggs, omelets, home fries, and amazing blueberry and banana pancakes!! Everything looked so good! I'll return on another trip to the area to sample the challah French toast, oatmeal, huevos rancheros, breakfast scramble... More

Awesome local food! Loved my huevos rancheros add cuban pulled pork. My friend enjoyed her chicken spinach salad too. Great staff, even short-handed!

Delicious, tender filet mignon and a juicy pork tenderloin were the highlights of our delicious meal. Service was friendly and attentive, and the restaurant itself was quite cozy. A great way to reward ourselves after a climbing all of those stairs (80+ floors!) to the top of Chimney Rock! This spot was recommended to us by two locals at the... More

We ate a Breakfast, Lunch and a Dinner at the Local Joint over the course of the 10 days we spent vacationing in the Asheville area….We loved their salads for lunch and dinner….Fish Tacos and Shrimp & Grits earned a “Major Yum!”…and the Breakfast / Brunch was tasty once the “glitches” were ironed out. Our server missed us during a... More

The food and service for breakfast is great. Highly recommend. Nothing over the top fancy or innovative, but everything was cooked perfectly and had a farm fresh taste to it (in other words, nothing was swimming in grease/flavorless). Fun atmosphere and a great way to start your day! Dinner was pretty much the opposite experience: horrible service and the food... More

Everything served is local and organic so the breakfast has eggs that taste like real eggs, grits that are real grits, you get the idea. Lunch takes on the same, fresh wonderfulness. Yes, it's a little yuppy but it's AWESOME! The wait staff are always friendly and it's a perfect place to meet others for a laid back meal. It's... More

Found this place almost by accident: we were travelling early one morning and stopped by a farm that had a deli, but they didn't start selling until 11 am. We asked if there was a place that served breakfast and the proprietor said, "There's a local joint a couple miles down on the left." We had no idea that the... More

We enjoyed breakfast there twice and it was terrific! Casual, friendly environment and the food was great. The breakfast menu offers traditional breakfast items as well as some unique dishes like pineapple upside down french toast and The Big Bear sandwich which has Cajun chicken, bacon and gravy.
