Fodor's Review

You can't get any more Asheville than Ben's Tune Up, housed in a converted auto repair shop and offering a slightly bizarre mix of Southern and Japanese dishes along with house-made sake and craft beers. This unique spot is at its best in good weather, when you can enjoy your Japanese-American fusion feast at picnic tables in an open-air beer garden—what remained after the architects took the main roof off the old garage. Seating is also available inside. As the evening wears on, Ben's becomes more of a bar, with live music most nights. There's even a convenience store.
