Being from Jersey and just moved nearby finding a place that loves home just as much as we do....of course we stopped in. I think we were more amused by the menu names then the cashier would of liked. Let's chalk his attitude up to a true New Jersey way of life. Decor was mostly sports memorabilia, and a nice... More

Visited for first and possibly only time as it was just average food served by nice guys in a small quaint North Carolina town. My wife had "the 5th" sub while I chose the Rueben. The marble rye bread was very good, and the guts of the sandwich were one and a half inches thick. Unfortunately, it was 1 3/8... More

Potato salad is excellent, this alone is worth drive out here. Excellent grilled cheese made on sour dough with different cheeses.

Gotham's is amazing. They are the closest thing to a real New York Deli I found in the state of North Carolina. Sandwiches are carefully constructed with a variety of excellent ingredients. I would recommend this delightful to anyone and everyone.

Loved the sandwich selections, my husband and I split one and there was plenty for lunch. Service was reasonable except no tray or plate for eating in. I also liked all the NYC photos and memorabilia on the walls. Would definitely return.

So many choices! I opted for a grilled chicken salad with avocados. I did make a comment about "how long does it take to make a salad" to my friend. However, I soon realized that they grilled up the chicken fresh. It was one of the best salads that I have had. I didn't even use any dressing. You can... More

This is a first class real yankee deli like you find in NY or NJ. The meat is excellent, sauces/dressings authentic, real good cheese, and great bread! Very unusual in this city formerly known for its confederate [uh-hum] affiliations. The staff and service is great too. And OMG I almost forgot the fab cheesecake!

First time we have been in awhile. Wanted a good turkey sandwich and as before they delivered. Fresh ingredients, good taste, and fast service even during lunch rush.

A few months ago, I would have told you this was THE place to grab a quick bite but I have grown increasingly less pleased with the service and quality of the experience here. The restaurant changed its name from Gandolfo's to Gotham's months ago and they have some regular staff which are quite wonderful and the owner is friendly... More
