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!

Found this location using Trip Advisor. We sat inside was a little warm, but the food was very good. I had a Blue Ridge Burger which is their specialty. Outstanding great flavor and good size for the price. Will be back.

Was visiting Black Mountain for a wedding and stumbled into Dark City Deli for lunch. Had an awesome meal and a local brew that was very tasty. The service was beyond excellent and the food was just delicious. Would go back in a heartbeat!

This is a place where you'll find locals as well as tourists in the Cherry Street Historical District of Black Mountain. We stopped for a quick bite mid afternoon. The appetizer menu is interesting and the burgers are large and delicious.Portions are huge! Service was excellent.

A group of us ate there on a Friday night - the staff were very accommodating and efficient. The food was delicious and there was a good selection of local craft beer. We all had a delightful evening.
