Huli Sue’s BBQ and Grill - Asheville
Hawaii meets “howdy” at Huli Sue’s BBQ and Grill, a brand-new addition to downtown Asheville. Texas-style barbecue and island-style flavors come together in the historic Grove Arcade, all packing a flavorful punch rarely savored in the mountains. Aloha to starters, sandwiches, signatures, and a full menu of specialty cocktails and colossal cake slices. 1 Page Ave Suite 150; (828) 505-0397; hulisuesbbq.com

Guy Fieri’s Cherokee Kitchen + Bar - Cherokee
The glassy facade of the 725 rooms of Harrah’s Cherokee Casino and Resort’s newest hotel tower lodges an exciting addition to the Flavortown franchise. Guy Fieri's Cherokee Kitchen + Bar is a designer-meets-rustic Smoky Mountain home full of patriotic pops of color in its 200 seats, stone-top bar, and custom woodwork. The menu, of course, proudly displays the flavorful, oft-saucy Americana classics synonymous with Food Network star Guy Fieri. Nachos piled high, burgers built with bacon and smothered in mac-and-cheese, crispy dry-rubbed chicken wings, and even “tuna poke won-tacos” are tantalizing options for lunch or dinner. Tables—and the showstopping Cheesecake Challenge dessert extravaganza—are available by reservation only. 777 Casino Dr; (828) 497-8311; caesars.com/harrahs-cherokee

ShareWell Coffee Co. & Roastery - Flat Rock
Thanks to five years of brewing community support, the once-nomadic ShareWell Coffee Co. & Roastery has found a place to call home. The craft roastery features a “slow coffee” bar for a curated cup of joe. The Flat Rock space includes a loft and patio for those looking to sit but is centered around the roaster, offering the ultimate experience for any coffee connoisseur. 2698c Greenville Hwy.; (828) 290-8188; sharewellcoffee.com
