Been here several times for lunch. Never had anything that wasn't really good. Everything from Ruben to burgers to salads are excellent. Reasonably prices for such good quality.

I've lived in Asheville since 2009 and haven't found a better sandwich & salad place than Roman's for lunch. I am generally not a fan of cold deli sandwiches, which is why Roman's continues to be awesome at what they do. Their panini-style sandwiches are...More

Wife and I stopped in for lunch on the MLK holiday. She had 1/2 turkey pesto sandwich with potato salad, I had the sesame chicken salad. "One of the best turkey sandwiches I have ate" - wife quote. The salad I had was very good.

I have eaten lunch here several times. The service is fast and courteous. The lunch specials allow you to eat a lot of just a light bite. The pesto chicken sandwich is one of my favorites. They even deliver to your office.
