My wife and I stopped in for lunch on the way home from our vacation. My wife ordered the Turkey Cranberry Pesto sandwich while I went for the daily special: Pastrami Burger. The burger patty was seasoned well and very moist. The pastrami took the burger to the next level for me. It was overkill in a good way. This... More

Highly recommend this restaurant!!! On our way home from the coast, my husband and I stopped in this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. I got the Turkey Pesto Cranberry Sandwich with sweet coleslaw as the side. Absolutely wonderful! Light and perfect for a hot summer day and still very filling! My husband chose the Pastrami... More

My family and I had lunch here during our visit to Asheville. My sons and husband had the BBQ burger and said it's the best they had all summer - we visited D.C., Virginia, New Orleans, and Chicago. I had the grilled chicken panini, which was the house special for the day, and my youngest had the tuna panini. Everyone... More

The burgers look great. They tasted pretty good too. We just aren't fans of burgers with seasonings inside the meat or multigrain buns. That's on us though. Not a knock on the restaurant. The service was fast and very friendly. In fact, we will come back just to try the paninis as they looked fantastic.

Great lunch spot smack next door to the Asheville Civic Center. While the line was long to order and seating was scarce, turnover was quick and the meal came out promptly. They offer half sandwiches which, with one of their sides, makes for an ample and tasty lunch. I had the half caprese sandwich which was delicious along with a... More

Checked the place out because of Trip Advisor. It is located across the street from the basilica, so it was very convenient for eating and sight seeing. My husband got the club sandwich, and I got the turkey with cranberry pesto. I got a half sandwich as I wanted a salad as well, but I wish I had gotten a... More

After visiting Asheville several times someone recommended us to check out Romans. We loved the food and went back again before departing. Nice quaint atmosphere not overpriced and offered organic and gluten free options and of course "beer"! ;) Will return if in the area. Only reason I didn't give another star is because when we went our 2nd time... More

I've had many burgers throughout my life, but this one wins. White cheddar cheese, bacon, and bbq sauce on the delicious burger. I had some fresh fruit on the side and some fresh lemonade to drink. Everything was delicious!

The hamburger was a little tough. It looked fantastic and was large, but just not the best ever. However, this is one of the few nice and affordable restaurants for lunch downtown. If you call ahead the lunch is ready for those of us on a limited lunch break.
