Nice Garden Patio, Good Food

We had a nice relaxing lunch in their garden patio area. My husband had a Reuban sandwich; lots of corned beef and great rye bread. I had a grilled veg panini; great mozzarella and lots of veg (squash, mushrooms, red peppers, spinach), It is dog friendly; staff was very nice. Service was a... read more

We have been in the Dark City Deli 4 times and each time ordered their sandwiches. This time I had the New York pastrami sandwich and my wife had a chicken breast panini. Both came with a pickle slice and chips. The pastrami sandwich is almost as good as one can get in New York. Sandwich prices generally range in... More

....makes being a vegetarian sooooo worth it. We had the pleasure of tasting this bean burger while on the food tour. Delicious!! They served a ginger beer (I believe!) which was so refreshing. We highly recommend this place.

A good gourmet deli with a variety of sandwiches and salads. It is a mix of rooms for inside seating but the outside patio is very comfortable with shade trees. Wait staff was good. A good comfy deli for lunch or dinner.

This doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't let the unassuming looks fool you. I promise that when you leave, you will be stuffed with some awesome tasting food. On my visit I had the bruiser and my wife had one of their daily special sandwiches. The service was average and won't blow you away, but it sufficed.... More

Love the tree covered outdoor seating area.. had live music while we were there. Location is great, in the middle of this artsy town. They have a deceivingly large indoor seating area, which they ask you to walk through, even if you're going to sit outside. They had an outdoor grill going while we were wandering thru the area and... More

We discovered this sandwich and burger joint by accident. What a find. I enjoyed The Godfather pannini. It was loaded with pepperoni, genoa salami, ham, mozzarella cheese, pesto, and tomatoes. It was great. My wife beat me with a monster BLT called The Sweet Baby Jane. The many pieces of crispy brown sugar rub bacon were to die for. We... More

Dark City Deli has a very large menu with to satisfy any kind of diet. Price is on point for pub fare. Our party had sandwiches and wings. The sandwiches were huge and full of healthy ingredients...the boys did not like the lemon pepper wings, but loved the bbq wings. The building is spread out which makes dealing with the... More
