asheville questions

i wanted to thank everyone for their great suggestions. we had many great dining experiences. For bfast we went to Tupelo Honey; Over Easy Cafe and Sunny Point. All three were great, the juevos rancheros at Over Easy Cafe were my favorite.

We didn't have much time for lunch but did hit Roman's one afternoon and it hit the spot. For dinner we did Tupelo Honey (my wife had to go back); the Junction and Limones. All three were great but the Junction was the standout.

the Bier Garden was fine for sport viewing but the appetizers were just standard bar food.

asheville questions

i've searched through other threads and haven't found what i am looking for. I will be at a conference for work next weekend and will be staying at the Renaissance downtown.

I am looking for casual but good restaurants with good local beer...ideally brewpubs but they don't have to be that are in walking (or short cab ride) distance. I've always enjoyed Barleys but would like to try something different. I am trying to introduce a co-worker to "good beer" and already plan on taking him to the Thirsty Monk.

Also on Saturday afternoon i need to watch the UGA game and need a pseudo sports bar with decent food to watch the game. I know there are a couple of chain sports bars in town and would like to avoid those for a local alternative.

Tell me about Mahoney's Po Boys

so i went today for lunch (1:30pm) and sat at the bar. the two bartenders couldn't have been nicer and gave me some good recs. i went with the roast beef poboy and it was off the charts. my food came to me in about 10 min. ti had it with someZapps chips and a local IPA. i was a very happy camper.

also i noticed a stencil of Guy Fieri on the wall and asked the bartender about it. she said that he was just in there the other day filming triple D and Emeril was with him. She said it should air in the next couple of months.

palm beach near the Breakers hotel

looking for some recs near the Breakers hotel in Palm Beach. i won't have a car so something in walking distance or a short cab ride would be preferred.
i will be flying solo so i will need someplace where i can eat at the bar. i am looking for good food that won't break the bank. nothing fancy with a good beer list.
i've been told that Roccos Tacos is decent?
