Dark City Deli used to be a great place to get a really good sandwich and a cold beer. What happened!! After the new owners took over, this place has become a mess. As a local to Black Mountain, I frequent many restaurants in town....More

We had the black bean burger and the chicken salad. Both we just okay. The brocolli bisque was a little too salty and I could not eat it.

After arriving about 2 in the afternoon, we were seated promptly. We all ordered something different..BLT, grilled chicken with avocado sandwich, and reubens. They were all delicious! Our waitress was very attentive, not overbearing, helpful with our selections, and eager to please. Very pleasant lunch!...More

We went there for our anniversary date. The food was great and so was the service. Everything was reasonably priced, and it was so peaceful in black mountain. We will be back for sure!

We started with beer, wine and the house-made hummus with veggies as an appetizer. Our dinners were the portobello melt sandwich, large wedge salad and small field green salad. Everything was good. We enjoyed the patio area, which is dog-friendly and great for people-watching.
