1/29/2020- Wow small Little place with a big punch very nice menu. I got a bacon Swiss cheeseburger. The burger , sorry I ate too fast came with a nice cold slaw , no vinegar that I can taste ,they don’t have french fries no fryer the burger came with a pickle. Nicest thing is the packaging it’s not Styrofoam or plastic it’s cardboard , nice touch There’s about 7-8 tables and it was busy.

This was an adorable deli! They had delicious burgers with fun flavors and the sandwiches were great as well. The service was great, the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. In addition to this, the restaurant was very clean. All tables appeared to have been wiped down, and the menus were sanitized before they were handed to us. The food came out within 10 minutes of us ordering, and we had 6 people! Overall, it was a great experience, we would definitely return.

I have been a Roman’s supporter for a couple of years now, using both their delivery when working downtown town and using their pick up. I have only good things to say about this place. The veggie burger is my favorite one in Asheville, and any of the other burgers I would also recommend. My daughter have enjoyed a few sit downs and lunches together. It is nice to be able to get her something as well. I plan on introducing my partner to the magic of this place as well. I couldn’t ask for sweeter people either. I am always informed of when my order is ready and they go out of their way to inform me. At such an uncertain time, they give me much certainty and appreciation for Asheville and local businesses. I will continue to support them now and always. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

My wife and I ate lunch at Roman’s today. I don’t expect perfection but I was surprised how the restaurant corrected an under cooked burger. I ordered the Mac Burger for dine-in asking for meat to be medium-well which is how the menu describes the preparation. The sandwich arrived on time with good presentation. Upon taking a second bite I realized the beef was cold and fleshy pink throughout the middle of the meat. I took my plate back to the counter asking the wait staff to please make me another burger medium-well. The same sandwich was delivered back to our table after additional cooking. I considered returning the recooked sandwich but my wife was nearly done with her food. Once served and sampled by a customer, the food should not be refurbished or handled by the kitchen due to any chance of cross contamination. This restaurant does not use good procedures for handling this type of complaint.

Hi John I wanted to apologize for the handling of your burger. It was a communication issue with our staff. The burger was brought to the back and the kitchen was asked to cook it longer. We felt like you want the burger back as soon as possible and did not have time for us to cook a new one. The item was handled very carefully with gloves and everything was properly cleaned up after it. We would have loved to cook you a fresh burger if we had proper communication among our staff. Again my apologies and I hope you give us another chance for lunch in the future. Thank you Roman

My fiancé and I love Roman’s during normal times, but we are even more grateful for their service during these times of uncertainty. We are both working from home so having Romans available for delivery is amazing and still delicious. They also deliver groceries like cold cuts and produce which is really clutch for us. Recommend all around!

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.

My husband and I took a road trip to Asheville due to limited travel during COVID. We had read about Roman's Deli and had to give it a try. We had to plan our day to be sure and make it there before they closed at 3:00. I absolutely cannot describe how delicious the chicken salad was. Now, remove from your mind what you think chicken salad is. This is nothing like it. The chicken is grilled and cut into pieces. I cannot say what was mixed with it, but it was absolutely delicious and unlike any chicken salad I have ever had. When we visit Asheville, I will definitely have another sandwich!

We stopped in to get sandwiches to go for a picnic we planned for later in the day. I took a flier on the Turkey Cranberry Pesto sandwich, thinking it might be horrible bit wanting to try it. My daughter ordered a chicken salad sandwich. Come lunchtime, we were not disappointed. I was especially pleased with the turkey, pesto, and cranberry combination. The flavors went together wonderfully. It’s a great stop before heading out for a hike.

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.

Unassuming but fabulous. This deli/restaurant does an amazing take-out business but indoor and outdoor seating is available. You order at the counter and wait a few minutes for the most awesome food. The place is clean and well managed with extremely helpful and friendly staff. There is parking across the street in a lot. Love it!

I was in town for a couple nights and looking for a good place to have a lunch before we visited a couple wineries. I read the reviews and the menu looked great so we stopped in and wow what a perfect place. I had a chicken salad sandwich and my wife had a turkey pesto sandwich. She’s not the biggest sandwich person but she absolutely raved about how good it was. We also had the chicken chili, potato salad, pasta salad, and coleslaw and everything was fantastic. We didn’t haven’t to wait long at all for our food and we were in and out very satisfied. Great job!!

Live in Charlotte come to Asheville often - NEVER miss Romans. Always fresh, always local, always delicious. Soups or salads or incredible sandwiches, youreally can’t miss - we’ve been fans for years.

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!

Roman's Deli & Catering is my favorite deli in town, located downtown between Pack Library and the Asheville Civic Center. Each of the sandwiches, burgers, and salads is delicious and can become an instant favorite. The Turkey Cranberry Pesto sandwich is so tasty, as is the he Bacon-Avo Caprese sandwich. I had the former last Thursday and will have the latter for lunch tomorrow. The white chicken chili is slightly addictive, and the sesame chicken salad is excellent with its grilled chicken tenders, pineapple slices, cashews, and a lemon vinaigrette. Roman is a great guy and also does a terrific job catering. Highly recommended!
