We had gone to Black Mountain with the intention of eating at a different restaurant however, they were closed (for two weeks!). A shop owner in town gave us several selections and this was one. We now have new place to eat!!!! Our waitress Casey was an absolute delight. The artichoke and cheese appetizer was SO good I got an extra order to take home!!! Great selection of sandwiches, burgers and salads. Nice patio seating for the summer!!!!

After a morning of shopping, we stopped at the Dark City Deli for lunch. We had to wait approximately 15 minutes for a table- party of 5 (3 adults, two children). Once seated, we order our soft drinks and food. The waitress brought our drinks right away, but we ended up waiting 45 minutes for our meals. The waitress did not check-in with us until right before we received our meals. We noticed that other patrons that were seated right before us or right after were also waiting a long time for their meals.

The atmosphere was cold and dark. We sat with our coats on, and as we looked around, other patrons were doing the same. The bathrooms had no heat, and the faucet water was cold- it was like the arctic circle- brrr!

The food was average, and the prices were too high for lunch- bill totaled $75.00. After we left, we wished that we would have gone to Olive Garden for lunch.

Great Chicken sandwich, the Dude is large and meaty and tasty with a hint of avacado and other wonderful flavorings. A favorite!

Came here for lunch with a co-worker. Server was pretty inattentive. Ordered a french dip sandwich with fries after I asked about some other dishes only to find out nothing is made in house, it's all ordered in. The french dip sandwich itself was crazy salty, add the au jus to it and it was downright terrible. The fries weren't even able to save the day. I was disappointed.
