We were traveling to the Biltmore House for a concert and stopped in Black Mountain for lunch. Only one choice in our book, Dark City Deli for the Sweet Baby Jane (BLT). Oh my goodness. Perfection in every way. The sourdough toasted bread, loads of mayonnaise, stack of tender lettuce, thick slices of red tomatoes and the BACON. Or should... More

We stopped in on Monday afternoon to grab a beer and maybe a bite to eat. We were met at the door by a very nice young lady and she escorted us back to the bar area. There were 6 men seated or standing at the bar watching the Olympics. We sat down at a table and perused the food/beer... More

is a good combination! Portions are large without being overly so. Popular with locals and tourists. Some outdoor seating to watch people go by in the summer. Food is flavorful without being too spicy, and prepared well.

Well, we were hoping to sit outside and watch the Olympic Basketball finals, but it started pouring, so we had to find a table inside. The layout of the rooms is a little confusing, but we did end up finding a good spot by the window. The waitress was kind enough to change the channel so we could see the... More

One of the better burgers in the area - juicy, correctly cooked, not overloaded; interesting place with nooks and crannies to explore; laid back but capable staff.

It was Saturday @ 1:30. Summer lunch slam. But, the staff never cracked and dealt with the crush including the slow uninitiated. Two Panini's, a couple of drinks, and all was well. Highly recommended for those who know how to travel and eat when passing through a quaint NC mountain town in high season!

We stopped here in the early afternoon for lunch. Service was excellent. The menu had a very good selection of burgers, sandwiches, and paninis. Prices were very reasonable.

THE Best BLT I've ever eaten... Ask them how they cook the bacon! Waiter was super nice and even gave us a free homemade brownie to try. It was almost as good as the BLT.. Go back every chance to get another BLT!
