We visited Roman's on a late Wednesday afternoon, and had the restaurant basically all to ourselves. We seated ourselves when the people behind this bar simply nodded at us. We studied the menu for a bit, then one person at the bar said they'd be glad to take our order at the cash register when we were ready. We went... More

This is one of the best salads I have ever had. The flavor combination is wonderful. I would recommend it if you are in Asheville.

Tucked away in downtown Asheville, Roman's is right next door to the Civic Center. This little place has wonderful staff, big emphasis on local food. Beautiful salads(vegans will find good but limited options) and arguably the best burger in Asheville. Gluten free buns are available.

Roman's has one of my top five burgers in Asheville, which is saying something. Their local mac burger reminds one of a Big Mac with it's flavors, but is made with fresh, local ingredients - and not mass produced crap. I also love their Italian sandwich.

Excellent food! Excellent price! Nice casual place to stop for lunch! We tried the half Italian sandwich and a half garden vegitable sandwich both with pasta salad as the side. Both were great! Half a sandwich and a side are a good lunch portion.

On our way to a short hike, Roman's is open early enough to order a nice picnic lunch for our hike. Your sandwiches (order the Italian) com with a cole slaw or potato salad. The sandwiches and salads tasted een better sitting by a waterfall!

This was a great sandwich and pasta salad! Everything was fresh and melded together perfectly in taste. I liked being able order only a half. It was a good size for lunch.

Roman's is located next to the arena and close to St Lawrence Basilica. Its food is natural, good and well prepared. You can have waitress service or self serve.
