West Asheville Lounge & Kitchen (WALK) 09/07/2012

 I have actually been going to the WALK since shortly after it opened and it has fast become one of my go-to places for a quick bite and a drink on a night when I don't have kids.  I've actually been a time or two with the kids, but they render any night out a failed experiment, so I try not to waste eating out money on them.

WALK has a great atmosphere and during nice weather the place opens up to allow a breeze.  The thing is, you can get a great meal here for crazy cheap. This particular time, my wife and I split a plate of the street nachos and a basket of sweet potato tots. I also had a beer and we spent under $15. The street tacos are great and almost everything I've had there has an excellent flavor. My wife especially likes the pulled pork sandwich. I've had a Chile Verde special there that was excellent and also recommend the blackened chicken sandwich. i found their chicken fingers to be a little on the dry side, however.

There are a few downsides to WALK. As it gains popularity, the wait for seating on the weekends becomes longer. Sometimes the music is turned up just a bit too loud, but it's still OK. They also never seem to have a beer special, but considering the price of the food and the quality of ingredients, these are trade-offs I'm willing to accept.
