A small deli but the food and service were very good. We just split a sandwich and a side dish. We both had their iced tea. We ate on the outside patio and enjoyed our lunch. If you find yourself in Black Mountain you should try the Dark City Deli.

While others may have mixed feelings about Dark City Deli, I've always had a great time. They have a number of gluten free options and their outside seating is among the best in Black Mountain. The Bingo Town salad is probably my favorite quick-hit meal in Black Mountain. Awesome every time! --Mike

I wrote a previously positive review of this place, man have things changed. We are not hard to please, seriously. The service was never very good but the yummy sandwiches made up for it...not anymore. The past 2 times we have been there, service was lousy, more so than usual, which we can forgive but the food has been equally... More

You definitely get your money's worth at this hot spot. Have tried nearly everything on the menu (that I could get my mouth around, that is). Very generous portions. These taste delights are works of art in more ways than one. I've been known to take my leftovers and get one or even two more meals. Is the "Sweet Baby... More

I was traveling with my son in law from Chapel Hill to Chattanooga on a Sunday. We had an excellent lunch...good choices...good service...good food. This was on a Sunday..not all restaurants are open. Very good place to stop & have a meal.

Complaints about Dark City typically involve slow service, long lines, and the speed factor. But it is a great place to kick back and enjoy a leisurely lunch, especially when seated outside. No complaints about the Foghorn Leghorn, white meat chicken so light and yet tasty that it jumps right out of the croissant! And delight in the black bean... More

Had a party of 12 and the waitress acted annoyed with us. Took us an hour and a half to get our food and that was after a 30 min wait to be seated. Then when they served my son, the waitress said they were out of bacon on his BLT and offered to cook him something else. So everyone... More

I had the blue ridge burger and it was delicious. We had a large group and sat on the porch in the back. Service was good and atmosphere was exactly what I expected from a deli/pub.

Huge sandwich selection and sandwiches are consistently good. That being said, that is pretty much all that is offered. I used to really enjoy their vegetarian sandwiches but after going gluten free there are very few options. Would love for the restaurant to carry gluten free bread. Until then, I will enjoy (very much) my HUGE mimosas on Sundays :)
