It's in Cross Street Market which is cool by itself and totally underutilized by locals. OK the market is a little dirty and poorly kept, but the vendors are awesome and have some cool treats. Big Jim's makes some decent sandwiches. They won't blow you away but they do sell beer somehow so that is kinda cool and unusual. So... More

Big Jim's Deli is located in the Cross Street Market Building in Baltmore. We had just arrived in the city and wanted a quick sandwich and a cold draft. We shared a Reuben and potato salad. Both were good. The selection of cold beers on draft was even better! We took advantage of some local brews and all three were... More

Had an awesome italian cold cut today that rivaled some really great ones from area italian delis in the Baltimore metro region. It was very messy but that's part of the fun. I like the atmosphere better here than the loud music and neon signs at the other end of the market. That side is a little overwhelming sometimes. Everyone... More

Grabbed a couple of sandwiches here after not having been to the market in awhile. We chose the chicken salad and lean corned beef and they were good but not overstuffed and they don't come with chips or a side. A large order was placed before us but we got our food pretty quickly. Its a good thing we had... More

The staff was not rude but was rather cold, impersonal and neglectful. However, they seemed more interactive & "clubby" with some other customers who were either friends or regulars. . We ordered four different of their sandwich "specials" selections: Big Jim Special, Turkey Delight, a Club sandwich & a Pastrami Special of some type. In general, the food was NOT... More

I was told after taking out my debit card that they only excepted cash. After retuning to work I find to my disappointment my ham was old, it must have been the first slice that should have been through away after sitting in the case. The sandwhich wasn't over stuffed. As a matter of fact it could have used a... More

The sandwiches are not worth 6.50. There not overstuffed. You have to pay for cheese and they don't accept anything but cash. And who doesn't have sweet peppers?!!!!
