My favorite dinner spot in Asheville. We have been driving from Brevard for several years to eat at 131 when we have a special occasion or guests. Service is superb and food delicious on every visit.

At best it was just average food, nothing to brag about. Talk about over priced!! Whew $14 Hamburger "Cooked to your liking" NOT... over cooked and tasteless. Next up $20 for an Ahi Tuna Salad...just average. Try someplace else and save your $40 lunch price
