Too busy on the Blue Ridge Parkway and needed food close to the hotel. This was in walking distance and was a pleasant surprise. Good menu options and great service! Will definitely go there again.

I STILL get compliments about this place! We used Roman's to cater my wedding this summer and it was absolutely perfect. They were so accommodating and it was the best prices we could find anywhere! During and after the wedding, people who attended keep raving about how amazing the food was and it really made it the best wedding they... More

Yeah, we're all kind of skeptical when someone says "this place has the best burger" but you may count on that in this farm-fresh, local product kind of joint. Just a regular cheeseburger with cheddar and all the fixings and I was in heaven! You know how when you start reading a book and you know its going to be... More

Even once you dismiss the owner/employee written love letters (reviews) here, there is still an amount of affection for this place that I just dont get. I mean, first off; the prices are high. Especially when you consider the ambiance, which reminded me of a break room at a department store. The wife ordered a chicken salad panini ($9), comes... More

I enjoyed my meal at Roman's but thought that the sandwich was quite small for the amount of $$ it costed. Friendly staff but the food, while good, was not excellent.

Stopped by here for a sandwich. Lots of sandwich, burger and salad options that I've never heard of, so hard to choose just one! The staff was really friendly and helpful in helping us in what to order and in what else to do around the city. The service was fast and the portion was big. The environment is just... More

Very nice, very efficient, and a good price performer... We had the lunch special which was a grilled cheese and tomato with bacon and spinach Panini which was delicious!

We are very busy at the office on Saturday so we order in from Romans and it is always a hit. Very creative offerings and packed with delicous flavors...

Their sandwiches are great, but a little pricey. 9.50 for a sandwich seems like a lot to spend, soup is consistent and always good. Service is great.

Asheville is a hub of local food friendly restaurants. We chose Roman's based on Trip Advisor reviews and our interest in "eating local and fresh." Located right across from the St. Lawrence Basilica, Roman's offered a variety of items on the menu. We ordered two 1/2 paninis ($5 each) which came with a pickle & our choice of bagged chips....
