We had lunch here at the recommendation of the guests at our inn. I would highly recommend for lunch. Very good and ample portions.

Dark City is an eclectic mountain town deli with menu option for carnivores and vegetarians. As mentioned, the dishes have funny names, like the Fun Guy portobello sandwich and the Carnomore build-your-on vegetarian sandwich. The servings are huge and their bar offers an array of beer, wine and liquor. Dark City is one of the many things that make Black... More

Followed a sign that was kind of difficult to follow but worth looking. Great bar food and a good NC cider. My spouse had pastrami and I had a chicken sandwich with pesto and sourdough bread/ both very good.

I love the sandwiches at Dark City Deli! My only problem is deciding which one to order. I love sitting on the patio - especially if there's a guitar player - with friends. Can't beat the combination of cool mountain air, delicious food, and a cold craft beer. When my kids were done at camp I purchased gift cards for... More

The sandwich names and explanations are very amusing. There were three of us. The "Philly" (thinly sliced grillled sirloin, provolone, onion, and peppers, on a hoagie roll) was messy but delish! The "Foghorn Leghorn" (chicken salad with celery, lettuce, tomato, and sprouts on a croissant) garnered no complaints but the chowder she had along with it was uninspiring. The "New... More

On two occasions I have visited Dark City Deli to have lunch recently. On one occasion the young woman at the register was so new she could barely work the computer and then could not make change when I paid. The second visit was one month later and I could not even get seated although it was after 2:00 pm.... More

We stumbled on the place by accident trying to find a quick bite. The menu is not your typical deli menu. There is a wide range of choices from appetizers, salads and sandwiches. Each item has there own little twist. The food was very tasty and the service was above average. Good little hole in the wall place. Definitely worth... More

First visit. Really good sandwiches and burgers. Big too. Pretzels and beer cheese was good too. Great tunes inside, live local music outside. The service was top notch. We'll be back.
