My co-worker come here once a week for the entertaining owner, people watching, and delicious sandwiches. The husband and wife owners are great. You can order ahead or if you are coming in, come early as sometimes you need to wait in line. It's a small place with a couple if high top tables and one or two outside. Not... More

We come here for lunch. It is head and shoulders above the nearby Hummel Bros deli. The portions are large, the establishment is sanitary, and there is a notable lack of surly women sporting prominent neck tattoos.

Johnny Salami's is a MUST-Visit deli off of I95 if you're on your way somewhere or if you're just looking for some great food. I stopped there on the way back from NYC, and I was starving - and had my dog with me. Johnny was already closed but let me in, gave me his last chicken cutlet sandwich -... More

I've had both the sandwiches here as well as some of the "under the counter" offerings. Haven't had a bad sandwich here, and the dirty rice/spicy chicken combination has always been a winner. The owner can come off as a bit gruff, but that doesn't bother me in the least, he still seems like a good guy. Only dings against... More

Burgers suck. Potato salad sucks, likely from a carton. Some sandwiches are excellent, but the owner changes hours of operation on a whim, so don't EVER count on the place being open during posted hours; the owner's gruffness loses its novelty when it screws up your plans.

Great sandwiches, no frills, generous portions. Obviously the location is not the best, but that doesn't impact how good the food tastes! Best to get takeout and go somewhere pretty to eat your sandwich.

These people rush you in and rush you out. You are not treated well there are places to sit but you cant because the line is so long. The only reason the line is long is because the food is cheap.
