Burgers and Sandwiches

Located in downtown Asheville. We ate lunch since the location was good. Food is very good, portions on small size. Pricey but in line with other downtown establishments. I ate the Italian sandwich and my husband had a burger. Both were very good, great flavor. Fresh ingredients.

I generally cringe paying $11 for a burger. But this was worth every penny. I have never enjoyed a hamburger so much, I would list Roman`s as being one of the top places in America. It was tasty, the perfect blend of flavors without overpowering the beef. Parking may get a bit dicey in downtown Asheville, but this place is... More

I was visiting the Asheville area and a couple of my friends and I thought this would be a good place to eat. A male friend I hadn't seen in over 40 years was living in Asheville, so we all decided to meet him for lunch. The food was pretty good. We all had sandwiches and enjoyed them very much.... More

This is an excellent concept of eating local from local growers. We enjoyed our lunch - good deli sandwiches. It would be nice of they had umbrellas for the outside tables. We would definitely go back & they deliver.

Delicious burgers! I had the ranch burger and my husband had the BBQ burger. We both really enjoyed our meal! I loved the potato salad!!! We got there right at lunch, but the service was quick and it was nice to eat outside. They had many sandwiches that looked amazing also! I would highly recommend this restaurant!

We stopped here for a quick lunch and loved it. The food is obviously fresh and really prepared in an interesting way. I had a chicken salad panini which was delicious. The addition of sundried tomatoes was something I've never seen before.

My dad and I were in town selling at a local anime convention right next door to Roman's and we split a club sandwich, it was SO good! Awesome meat, cheese and veggies! And their food is local which is always nice! I would definitely come back!

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
