Blt dogs are the best
My husband and I stumbled up on this place and so glad we did the Friday special was amazing the atmosphere was fantastic and service was super. I recommend this restaurant to anyone in the Asheboro area.
While in town visiting the zoo, we decided to try out this restaurant.... AND I'M SO GLAD WE DID! The food was amazing and the staff was so friendly. We will definitely be back the next time we're in Asheboro!
Locals have a treasure in their midst. Outstanding food and great service. If I lived in the area this would be my favorite restaurant. We will be back.
Wonderful cuisine! I thouroghly enjoyed the Chicken Cordon Bleu.
Service is excellent food is OK have only tried this place for company functions. Regular food might be different
Service was excellent! Gyro with the home made Tzicikki sauce was average. Would return and try other items.
Delicious and upbeat atmosphere
Enjoyable place to eat. Friendly staff & the food was reasonably priced
Nice little place. Great food!
Great food, friendly atmosphere.
Very nice staff. Many varieties of food. Always good!
This is definitely something different. Great food and Great Service.
First time I came for lunch and was immediately greeted with kindness and sat quickly. The waitress was very attentive and helpful. The food was so good. I had the Charleston and was so satisfied. I will most definitely be coming back here.
Not really mediterranean fusion style at all. The place is ok, the food was meh... the restaurant is being sold apparently, we will see what comes.
Great food. I love the lamb. The owner greeted us at the table. Food was delicious!!! We will be coming back soon! Definitely Somethimg Different rocks!!!
I ordered lasagna. It was okay. My husband and mother in law ordered steak and neither were impressed. Overall experience was dissappointing.
Great food and great service. Large selection of meals. Try the volcano cake.
Great food love eating here
Nice locally owned restaurant with good food choices. Nice atmosphere
Excellent food with a great atmosphere!! Staff were extremely polite and professional.
Just wasn't that good. Granted, it was a busy Saturday night, but when the server agrees to bring you a sauce for your meal, and refills on beverages, and is never heard from again, it leaves a poor impression. The salads were composed of what appeared to be preshredded, bagged lettuce, with a bit of shredded cheese and a single halved cherry tomato. The serving sizes of the entrees were fairly small, and very heavily spiced. We didn't hate the place, but won't be back.
came here last night for dinner with family for the first time. absolutely loved it! service was amazing & drinks were always promptly filled without having to be asked. food was fantastic & prices are reasonable. will be coming back again to try more items on the menu!
Nice little home town restaurant. Great menu choices from American to Greek.
Great food and atmosphere. stopped by on the way to the zoo.smart move
Flavorful meals, sensibly priced, we have sent thousands of guests for rehearsal dinners to having weddings catered. Something Different also caters to our corporate events. We suggest the Bacon Crusted Sirloin and all of the Pasta Dishes!
Felt like a sauna in there. It was so hot inside we walked out before ordering and the staff even told us they have brought it up and the owner just says its hot outside so his AC can't keep up; unfortunately for him the AC in Chili's works fine so we walked out and went to Chili's instead. I even told the owner on the way out we we're leaving because it's so hot and he handed us the same line that he tells his staff about his ac can't keep up when its 95 out; boy do I feel for the kitchen staff and waitresses! Sad too because the food is good but I guess we'll return in October to dine when it will feel better inside.
Prime rib was delicious. Servers were awesome.
The wait staff is amazing as well as the food.
Great authentic Mediterranean food.
4 star food at 2 star prices and excellent service. Exceptionally nice people and small town atmosphere.
I was so disappointed with my food. I've lived in the area for a long time but had never tried this place. Decided to finally eat there but the food was very bland. I ordered the shrimp scampi. The shrimp tasted good but there was only about 4 of them in this huge plate of pasta. I also received 2 lobster ravioli type discs with it. They had no flavor and neither did the pasta. My husband and son who are very picky ordered the burger. The bun had poppy seeds on it which I don't remember seeing that listed on the menu. My son was trying to pick the seeds off. Also the bun was bigger than the burger and the burger was not good. Burger paty was a little on the thin side and there was nothing flavorful or special about it. I will not ever go back.
We got fast service even on a busy night,, everyone was very nice. Food was great
Food was very good.
The menu is varied and good... Atmosphere and service are nice as well.... The halibut was great as was the Chicken Bayou....A good choice for good food that's not the usual corporate fare....
A wonderful place to eat. Steaks are cooked as ordered. Wait staff if very attentive even when very busy. Owner walks through and greets every table as if you are the only people there. Stuffed chicken and crab dip are a must.
The food was great and the staff was amazing.
The food is very good, the wait staff is friendly. I dont know anything about wine but they have a big selection. The beer list is what I like and they have a little something for everyone. The owner is and has always been welcoming and friendly every time I visit. The restuarant is clean and one of my favorite places to sit back talk with my wife and eat.
This place is amazing!!! Food was great, service was great, couldn't have asked for a better place to eat! We came here for the Zoo which is probably what brings most of their clientele here. This place is a star attraction!!! LOVED IT!
Always love going here. Great food. Husband loves the chef salad and I love the lamb chops. Not everyone can cook lamb, but fabulous here.
Great food and excellent service. Will gladly visit again. We loved the kabobs.
Food is always delicious and service is great!
They have different kinds of food. From steaks to seafood to Italian dishes. Never had a bad meal here. Service is great and prices are fair.
My whole family ordered food from here and it was all so good! The variety of food is great. Really great everything. I loved the crab cakes and the amazing brownie!! We will definitely be coming back next time we’re in town!
Awesome food! My salmon was perfect!!!
Nothing special. No frills American Italian fair. They do catering so it seems almost like cafeteria food. Friendly staff though. I felt as if I was sitting in a old grocery store turned restaurant.
Amazing food and service
Always friendly and perfect service. Enough great food options that I could eat there every day except that the drive is 30 minutes away. Owner is always happy to see you.
Oh boy! You are in for a treat... Everything is good here...
Got dinner there tonight and was pleasantly surprised with how great the staff was! We were seated promtly, our waitress took our order quickly, we never went without drinks and as we finished they cleaned up the table so we didn’t sit with empty plates in our way. Definitely recommend this place if you’re wanting somewhere to with good food and excellent service!
Food is always good and service is excellent. Friendly staff that can answer your questions about the menu. Excellent selection of food, from steaks to seafood or Italian dishes. If you want something different (no pun intended) then it is worth a try.
We had a wonderful experience here. Everyone was so friendly and willing to do whatever they could to make our experience fantastic. I got the bayou and it was out of this world! We are not from here and our hotel sent us to this place... I am sad that we won't be around to try more of the wonderful food. Thank you for a great experience!!!!!
Great food but a little on the pricey side.
Food was good... Service was poor although i feel like there was some reason for the lack of service. It was very busy, but that's still no excuse to go 20 min without someone coming by after ordering. We ran out of wine and had to wait quite a while for a refill. One steak was overcooked but still good. One of our 5 different wait staff that it apparently took to serve us did take the check so i didn't have to wait in line 10 mins to pay but that couldn't make up for the lack of service up to that point
Delicious...salmon, great veggies and brownie with Ice cream and sauce. Oh my!
Great food. Great environment. Great service.
Driving through Asheboro on July 4th and it was open. Friendly service, nice atmosphere.
Terrific local restaurant serving reasonably priced dishes. Very popular on Sunday after church.
We eat here two or three times a month. Excellent food and wonderful service! Best ribs ever!
My wife and I got a night out alone together while we were in town, her parents watched our kids for us and recommended this place. It was amazing! The food was cooked to perfection and our waitress kept checking to make sure everything was ok. I don’t think our kids would have cared for it, but that’s why we went alone! Definitely a place for a couple to dine at.
BEST ribs ever!! Love this place.
The food was delicious! They had a lunch special that included 2 entrees, shared dessert, and 2 drinks for $20. I had the pineapple upside down cake that was warm with ice cream.... hmmmmm.... good!
Really a top-notch place to eat.The chef-owner spends a tremendous amount of time making sure that every dish is prepared perfectly can't wait to go back.
Excellent food and service. Family of four and all of our food was cooked to perfection! Even though they were out of crabcakes, I will definitely reccomend this place to anyone in the area.
We won dinner for two off of facebook. Im so glad we did or we would have never experienced this great restaurant. The food was fantastic very clean the wait staff was excellent. Even the live music was great. Cant wait to come back.two thumbs up
Been here a few times. Good stop in Asheboro. Ribs were so tender I was able to eat with a fork.....just a fork....just fell off the bone.
Lunch deals are great.. the burger was average but everybody else loved their food.. the pasta was great.
Food was good, service was nice and the atmosphere is pleasant. The chocolate volcano dessert was great, my 4 year old was ecstatic that it was on fire. We will probably be back the next time we are in the area.
Excellent food and Awesome service!!!
Excellent Food! We highly recommend this restaurant for great food, service, and ambiance. We have dined here for years!
Love this place. Great food and fantastic people!
The food was okay but for this place to be so nice the prices have gone up but the food has gone down. The place is really nice. I would recommended it as a nice place to go
#gourmet. Had Christmas party there with coworkers very nice..the room we were in was small which made it rather noisey. The food was good as always.
Exceptional service, it food was appeal to the eye and to the stomach.
Food and service really good we enjoyed our lunch
The ribs were awesome but if you order the grilled veggies as a side, turns out it is just onions and peppers. I asked if I could have a side salad instead and they brought me iceberg lettuce with a little cheese on top. Something Different ended up being pretty ordinary and mediocre.
Surprisingly good food and good service from a not very appealing outside..the ribs were very tender with delicious barbecue sauce, the sandwiches were tasty, the fries really good. Only house wine and a couple of beers though.
Service was great! Food was just ok.
Went to this great place on our visit to the NC Zoo. The restaurant was fantastic, the wait staff was very friendly and fast. Food came out very quick, and was delicious. Would definitely recommend for anyone visiting this area on the days that they are open!
The shrimp and crab dip is a fantastic starter only to be followed up with delicious shrimp scampi. Excellent service and meal.
Pleasant meal with a local vibe mixed with a wonderful staff. Food is prepared by great cooks. Recommended place to eat.
Great food and atmosphere. A wonderful place to stop in Asheboro
Great food! And service.
Amazing experience and a delicious dinner! My husband and I eat at a restaurant each weekend that we have never been to before...the name caught our attention! Such a great choice....we aren’t local so we visited the local zoo and enjoyed dinner with our son’s at “Something New Restaurant”.
Food was great with a friendly atmosphere !!!
The atmosphere waa very nice, staff was pleasant and knowledgeable, and the food was excellent. Found the restaurant by accident and will definitely be going again.
What a little gem this place was. Its tucked back in a little strip mall shopping center so it's kinda of hard to notice. They had quite the variety of food and everything was amazing! Will definitely visit again next time I head to the NC Zoo.
This restaurant could be more aptly named Something Adequate. Not horrible, just not great. Salad was bagged shredded lettuce, with a bit of cheese and one sad little cherry tomato. I had salmon and my husband had steak. Meh is the best word he and I had to describe it. Bread was Texas toast, not what I would have expected. Overall, I can say we will choose "something different" for dinner next time.
Food very good and they give you plenty to eat, experience every pleasant and waitresses ate very attentive!
Excellent food and the waitstaff was amazing. They were noticeably more polite and helpful than anywhere i have ever been so much so that I felt I have to write this review for them. The owner saw that my little girl was not in a good mood because she was woken up from her nap so he personally brought her some m&ms and a plate of food put within the first 5 minutes of us sitting down. You dont get that type of service often these days. We will definately be returning the next time we are in ashboro.
Wonderful food. I enjoy the " not Americanized version" of certain dishes. This place is a hidden gem, well worth the drive from the GRA or Fayetteville.
The food was delicious and the service spot on. We had steaks which were cooked spot on an tasted fabulous!
We went here looking for something different, delicious, and local. And I think this place hit home runs on all counts. The food was delicious, we had a combination bayou and a low country boil, since it was on special. The portions are pretty healthy and we definitely had some leftovers, since we made sure to have desert - and dessert was also REALLy great! A healthy portion of warm pineapple upside down cake, with cold creamy ice cream, and hot caramel. The wait staff team-waited so service was SUPER fast, and they always had our glasses full, and as soon as we we ready to order someone was at our table. A really great experience and a place I will come back to as often as I can!
Food was good, and the selection was definitely a little eclectic... And in a good way! The owner was there and was incredibly friendly and helpful. We were very impressed. If you are in town for the zoo, stop and check this place out!
I was with a large party on Saturday night. We were waited on by a male and a female, the male being the most friendly and outgoing. The female being a total stuffed shirt and not anything but civil. You could tell she had waited on large parties before and didn't like them. The food at this place was only fair, the salmon was pretty good along with the overcooked vegetables with it. The salad was great because it's very hard to mess up a salad. Evidently the manager came over and pre-bused the tables, which was great. At some point the wait staff decided they were done with us and never brought our checks. I was mildly annoyed so I nicely walked up to the front and asked the waitress if she was going to bring our checks so we could go. And without a hint of a smile she said, they're right there (indicating the front desk). I was no longer mildly annoyed, and unfortunately for her, it reflected in her tip. I don't intend to return to this restaurant.
The food that was served to me wasn't what I ordered, so I got to watch others eat while I waited on staff to get it right. Then, you guessed it... others got to watch me eat my patched up plate of ill-prepared food. We've dined here several times previously and this was the second consecutive time we left disappointed. In the past, the manager usually asks how everything was, but he didn't ask this time. Since we sat in close proximity to where he was, I guess he already knew. Very disappointing. We won't be back.
The salmon over vegetables & Greek salad
Outstanding place is so good and clean.
Great place to get something different. Good service and food!
Food prepared consistently with good service. None of the dishes are spectacular but are good.
Great place awesome food
Awesome service. Loved the Bayou Chicken.
The food was delicious. The wait staff was courteous and helpful.
Excellent food very friendly great atmosphere definitely going back
We were traveling through Asheboro and found this little gem of a restaurant. Very tasty dishes and totally indicative of the name. Their Bayou dish is very good. Very reasonable prices and great service.
Wonderful place for lunch or dinner and what's nice is they don't close between them. No problem going for an early dinner. Food always perfect...hot when it should be hot. Wait staff always friendly and helpful when trying to make up your mind. Special one night was a prime rib which was perfectly cooked and price less than $15. Salmon with rise is moist and just right. Desserts ... which one is hard to decide on. Great selection. The owner runs an incredible restaurant. Everyone should try it once.
Food was exceptional and so was the service. Love this restaurant
Stopped in for lunch with the wife we both enjoyed our meals. service was great. Owner is awsome. Definitely recommend
Wonderful food and even better service. Worth the drive from Gibsonville to Asheboro.
Great food and good prices. They have a private room where you can hold events with no fee, we held my bridal shower here and it was the perfect location.
It was very clean an the people we're nice food not so good tasteless an oily
SO!!! I live in Asheboro now. Been working here for a while. Have found my New Home for eating out!!! Sanin and Tula and wait person Harley, were all absolutely wonderful! The Salmon was done to perfection, the sauteed vegetables were equally well attended, and the Greek salad was divine! So I will be eating there once a week for as long as they remain open, which is, I pray, another thirty years. Two thumbs, up to infinity, and WAY beyond!
Incredible food! We stopped by for a quick bite and were impressed with the taste of the food. Will definitely come again. Actually, tonight!
Fast, friendly, kid-friendly and delicious.., what more could you hope for? The owner was incredibly friendly... I would definitely eat there anytime I’m in town!
Nice wait staff and good food
Good food. A little Greek style, wide variety Menu. Solid choice. Bayou chicken was our fav. Salsa was great.
Very good. Friendly service. Versatile menu. I will go back
This restaurant is one of the best that I've ever been too. The service was great and the food was even better. The thing that makes this 5 stars is that owner came by the table and asked if everything was going well and if we enjoyed the food. I would love to come back here again.
Good menu with huge variety from burgers to full entrees. Lamb chops were perfectly rare, one person had a rib eye steak well done...and it was. We had lots of freedom to sit and talk as we had traveled from various locations for the weekend. Wait staff was very attentive, followed up and left us to enjoy our meal. If ever in the area we will enjoy this restaurant again.
Really good food. Very nice establishment. Great variety on the menu.
Service was amazing even though it was packed on a Sunday afternoon! And there's beautiful pottery for sale.
Great place to eat!
Good food for the area
Very good. Hate not opened more during week but food good and so was service.
I love this restaurant. First class! I have never had bad food or service.
Excellent food, great friendly staff, value for what you get is reasonable. I went with a group of 4 and we all left full and happy. Would definitely recommend and go back next time I'm in the area.
Much better than it though. Food and service was great.
Delicious food, with clearly marked gluten free options. Friendly staff.
Only bad thing about this restaurant is they open only on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday
We were visiting asheboro and we encountered amazingly prompt and polite service. Food is Great and the owner was even brimging complimentary dishes as a welcome to his restaurant. We will eat there every time we go to the zoo
Very nice campground. Campers aren't right on top of each other
So delicious! We were in town for just the weekend. Our hotel had their menu at the front desk and we wanted to go somewhere that was nice. I'm so glad that we tried Something Different! The staff were friendly. And the service was super fast and good. Our drinks where low and 3 different people asked if they could get more drinks for us! Now that's service! The food was so good. The staff recommend dishes from every section of the menu. I went with the low country boil. The portion of food was plenty and very well cooked and seasoned. We had to have some of their dessert and we choose the pineapple upside down cake. I am so glad that we did! It literally melts in your mouth! When it came out the dish, it was so pretty it almost looked too good to eat but you know we had to do it anyway! We will definitely be back when we are in the area!
We visited Something Different after our trip to the NC zoo. It was less than 10 minutes away. We had a great experience and were seated immediately. The waitress was very friendly and attentive. The food came out extremely fast. It was hot, fresh, and delicious. We would definitely recommend Something Different to anyone who visits Asheboro.
Food was NOT good...burger was flavorless and small for 10.99... croutons in Caesar salad was to hard could barely bite into them...chicken also had no flavor and small for 10.99...onion rings were ok but tasted like fish...ranch was so watered down not sure if it was ranch... cream potatoes were edible...service was good...but when paying and asking how we liked it, I was honest and said I didn't like it and the person was very rude...will NOT go back nor recommend this place to anyone
Love this restaurant. I have been going here for over a decade and you can always count on delicious food and fast friendly service. Wonderful place to go with a group that has different tastes as there is something good for everyone. Highly recommend.
Fresh, hot, delicious food, great service, low prices. I would give it six stars if I could, wonderful dining experience, I had a beef gyro, and it was very hot and tasty, the chef came to our table to bring the baby some finger food, you can tell he loves people, and food. Definitely check this place out! It's Something Different, because it's better than the rest.
Something different is amazing every time. Cannot say enough good things things. Staff is awesome.
Food and service is always top notch!
Food was great. Had great flavor and good service. I will be returning.
This place is horrible and the owner treats his staff very bad. Pick any place in asheboro to eat but this one. He hates Americans its sad. The worst owner I have ever talked to.
This place has good brunch options and neatly maintained. It's closer to the NC Zoo as well.
Good food, a casual atmosphere
The food and service is outstanding!
Amazing food and service. Will be back for sure. Can't say enough, food really was so good. steak kabobs and Volcano cake was delicious. High quality food.
Awesome place to eat and the staff are friendly.
Friendly staff and good food.
Friendly staff and good service. Had the spaghetti which was good. Salad was excellent. Love salads with shreaded lettuce. Would go back.
I go and always am 100% satisfied. My absolute favorite.
Visit this place once a year and once a year we REALLY look forward to it. Always consistent and good. Service is exceptional. Menu is filled with delicious options.
First time in, busy Saturday night. We were sat 2nd of 3 booths. Third booth got there about 15 minutes after us. Our food came out last and you could tell it'd been sitting for a long time...was probably supposed to come out before the ones who got there after us. Husband got ribs, they were luke warm, I got chicken parmesan and it was congealed and the noodles were hard. I sent mine back. 10 minutes later it came out hot; when I started eating I realized the red sauce wasn't just marinara like usual, but meat sauce. It was disgusting - chicken and meat?? I ate the chicken that's it. Husband ate 25% or ribs, wasn't happy either. Worst part, food wasn't good and the bill was $45 - not worth it, Applebee's does better.
Adequate food, but not worth going out of my way to visit
Just visited the second time in a year passing through Asheboro. Highly recommended!
Always a good meal ♡
Service with a smile and very attentive. So appreciate both! Chicken Florentine SO delicious one would like to lick the plate!!! Turtle cheesecake wonderful end to the meal. Nice ambiance and a great place to take family and friends!! A bit pricey but worth it!
