Where To Eat At Biltmore Park
Excellent BBQ, mac and cheese and outdoor seating in Biltmore Park
Luella’s Bar-B-Que is typically our pick for dining in Biltmore Park. Well, Luella’s and Nine Mile! We love the casual, order-at-the-counter atmosphere and the outdoor seating.
We recommend their pulled pork with a touch of vinegar sauce and a side of macaroni + cheese. It’s truly one of the top BBQ places in Asheville and definitely worth a visit if you haven’t been.
Not only is it great for dining in, but they have an excellent take out system. In fact, they are one of our most recommend takeout restaurants in Asheville.
Flavorful food at an Asheville institution
Nine Mile is an excellent Caribbean-inspired restaurant with three locations in Asheville. This location is in Biltmore Park and is the newest of the three. They have a great outdoor seating option here!
As far as what to order goes, start with the Live and Give appetizer! it includes queso, hummus and salsa. It’s a fun way to start a meal and gives you time to peruse the entrees. What we love about Nine Mile is that several of the options are dairy-free and gluten-free.
If you are a fan of Mahi Mahi, make sure to try their Mayfield Falls entree. It’s served in a dairy-free ginger + coconut sauce and is truly on another level. The classic Nine Mile dish with grilled jerk chicken is also fantastic.

Cafe with excellent breakfast and lunch sandwiches
Mosaic Cafe in Biltmore Park is the perfect place to start your day. We love their lumberjack breakfast sandwich. It’s pretty epic, with bacon, sausage, ham, egg and cheese on a pretzel bun. The sandwich is hot, the cheese is melted and it’s perfectly delicious.
Mosaic also has excellent lunch sandwiches and great outdoor seating with umbrellas. It’s near the YMCA in Biltmore Park and just across from REI.

Another menu item we love is their iced ‘latte’. It includes cold brew, almond milk, dates, vanilla and maple syrup. It’s so different than what we typically expect with a latte but very delicious!
