More Than A Restaurant:

Experience Local Meat at Its Finest

Foothills Butcher Bar and Kitchen is our vision of neighborhood butcher shop meets delicious casual dining and friendly, local bar.

With a menu designed by renowned chef Owen Lane, our Butcher Bar and Kitchen is a family-friendly destination for eat-in or take-out, grabbing a pint of local beer or a casual cocktail after work, or swinging by to pick up fresh grocery staples or your weekly Meat CSA package from our butcher counter.

Foothills Butcher Bar and Kitchen:

Eat & Drink

We serve our West Asheville and Black Mountain (opening late 2017) butcher bars and kitchens with a casual dine-in and carry-out experience, with our legendary focus on local foods and handmade meats.  

We serve Foothills signature menu items such as burgers, house-made hot dogs, and tallow fries, features from our smokehouse, and Chef Owen Lane’s daily specials. Experience a culinary adventure from American classics and comfort foods to layered dishes that will please a connoiseur’s palate. In addition, Lane and the culinary team use seasonal, local produce as well as offer “good eats for the non-meat eaters.” 

We have a friendly, cozy bar that features a small and well-curated draft beer selection as well as bottles and cans from hard to find breweries for enjoying here or to-go. In addition to the beer selection, you can enjoy simple and inexpensive classic cocktails.


Inspiration for cooking comes from all sorts of different things, from something my mother used to make and how I can twist her recipes, to a BBQ at someone’s house. Inspiration never comes when you might think – it just happens. It can’t be forced.
