BEST SANDWICH DOWNTOWN

Well, the title says it all. The folks who own this place are wholesome. So is the food. Fresh everything, and undoubtedly, the best sandwich in town. It is one of those always ultra clean environments. Never any food on the floor, or left on the tables. It is located right next to the Civic... read more

Wow! The food is amazing. Can't go wrong. Our family thoroughly enjoyed the BBQ Bacon Burger, the Ranch Burger and the Turkey Cranberry Pesto sandwich which all came with sides. This place is friendly and clean, not to mention cute. Great place to visit and relax. Not to mention, they carry Izze's and Coca-Cola in a bottle, highlight for the... More

We decided to give Roman's a try because it was listed as one the top 15 sandwich shops in North Carolina. We tried the Turkey Cranberry Pesto sandwich and the Caprese sandwich which was very good. The sandwiches come with a side and we chose the sweet coleslaw and the potato salad. The potato salad was good but the coleslaw... More

Three of us had lunch at Romans on a Saturday....the other two had hamburgers, i had a sandwich, and we all enjoyed our choices. The girl at the register was very cheerful and helpful, the food was very good (and filling), we would definitely eat at Roman's again.

The other reviewers are right. The burgers at Roman's are exceptional. They were juicy, flavorful and grilled just right. It also felt like we were in amongst the locals rather than crammed in with a bunch of tourists, even though it was a busy Saturday. We will definitely go back to Roman's the next time we visit Asheville.

A great burger. Mine was well cooked and juicy, not the usual dry burger that one gets at most places. Service was also good.

One of the best hamburgers I have ever had with really good cole slaw and cherry stout. That was a first class lunch.

Asked locals where to go for lunch (where they went). Just across from St. Lawrence Basilica is a small place with great sandwiches for not a lot of money. I had a burger with portobello that was really good, and my wife had their cuban sandwich, also a hit. Nice artwork on the walls.
