Great little restaurant. I got the black & blue burger, while hubby got their daily special, his favorite sandwich, the Reuben. We both liked our sandwiches. He got potato salad…that’s usually hit or miss. This was a hit and I immediately regretted the bagged chips....He got a light beer while I got a cane coke (no corn syrup!) They did a brisk online pickup too. We were there a little before lunch at 11:30 & got there before the rush. Overall, this place is a win!More

Went with the wife on Monday, 5/16/22. We got 2 whole sandwiches and split the: The grilled chicken caprese & the Italian. Both were very good. Had both on sourdough toasted bread. The potato salad and fruit sides were both good. Service was quick &...polite and the small environment with about 6 tables & counter near the window were very clean. Will return next visit.More

I work at a local company in Asheville. Roman's is our go-to for lunches. Quality of local food, awesome portions, and a great variety! I would recommend Roman's every time for someone seeking lunch in Asheville.

Anytime I’m in Asheville I try to have a lunch with a friend or pick up dinner to take home. My wife and I love just about everything Roman’s offers. One of my favorites is the Cuban Sandwich…the best anywhere!

Good spot for lunch especially if you're a local as it's just outside the hustle and bustle of downtown. Food was good. The only thing that was off was all the guests were wearing masks - but none of the staff was including one of...the owners. Really people? With covid cases spiraling right now in Buncombe County don't you think you should be doing your part to stop the spread?More

I had the Ham and provolone for lunch on my way to an ebike ride. This place is clean and friendly staff and of course the food was soooo satisfying. I loved the pannini grilled bread. Warm, tasty and again sooooo good. I ended up...going back the next day for another lunch of the same thing.More

We wanted a good sandwich before we left for home and decided to try this place out. Food was really good and they have a number of options. Glad to find this place and then be able to walk around downtown.

The Turkey Cranberry Pesto sandwich was amazing. You won't be sorry. The Greek Salad was good, but was missing the chicken we asked for.

We stopped based on the reviews and were definitely not disappointed. She had the vegetable sandwich and I had the pimento cheeseburger - they were both outstanding! The burger itself was just super tasty and then when you add cheese and bacon - nice! It...is very unassuming - you order at the counter and they bring it to youMore

We were driving back from a day filled with physical activities. We were so hungry and I had remembered reading something about this restaurant so ordered online so that we could just pick it. My husband ordered the Italian and I ordered the caprese and...they were both fantastic. I ordered the small fruit cup as a side which was small yes but fresh and a great end to a perfect meal.More

They are all so sweet and easily took care of an order mishap (something I entered in wrong). Now the food... if you want to taste food that has flavor and that you can tell love was put into it, go here. Their food should...not be this heavenly and it will exceed all expectations.More

Dogs are very common in outdoor patios in Asheville, though they must be on a leash.
