We stopped here after a hard hike in the sequoias and sam's sausage sandwich really filled us up afterwards. Great selection of snacks to take on the road.

Traveling in California is such fun! We find fabulous food and interesting places everywhere. Sam's is no exception. Take a number and when it comes up ask the server about their favorite sandwich. They will not lead you astray! My daughter and I really enjoyed the sandwiches and the whole experience. My daughter enjoyed the cannoli and I bought the... More

This old time deli reflects the way that it was and still is in this long standing Fresno Favorite. I are up in this neighborhood and every once in a while it is good to go back to the old flavors for Deli taste.

It was truly amazing how fast we were helped with 20 people in front of us. Huge staff behind their large full deli counter making sandwiches as fast as they can. Yummy.

Step up to the counter, take a number and get ready for great food. And such a selection! I had the Sam Special, my husband the hot pastrami, both of us very pleased. The bread is the perfect texture for these big sandwiches. We each tried a different root beer from the fun assortment of sodas, beers, drinks. We sat... More

This is a must-see old-school delicatessen that really has it all! From delicious prosciutto to perfect salamis and roast beef, the Sam's crew can build your sandwich to your specifications. Sam's also has excellent prepared dishes including tortellini and raviolis. And, did I mention the wine selection? Sam's has a great selection of domestic and imported wines. If you're stopping...
