Description: Family owned and operated since 1990. Bill, Barbara, and Kelly Bradley started serving the San Clemente community with the hopes of being the "go to" spot for locals and visitors alike. In 2016, Billy's changed ownership and the new owners, Todd & Leslie Bowers, are excited to carry on the tradition and legacy that the public have come to love and appreciate. We are a full service delicatessen and old fashion butcher shop serving the highest quality meats available at a reasonable price.

“always good, always fresh”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

fresh bread and a variety of great ingredients are really all it takes to make a great sandwich and billy's has all of it. they have a full service deli, including marinated meats and fish and a huge selection of salads and baked goods. as well, they will make an awesome sandwich to go - you can get a half sandwich with soup or chili or a full sandwich and then you may add chips or sides or drinks - they have a huge selection. plus, free pickle chips for sampling.

“Good Sandwich”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Basic Deli Counter, a few tables outside, not restaurant. Sandwich are good, so much better than others. Can get very busy, choose time wisely to arrive. Excellent variety of sandwiches to choose from. Parking in rear.

“Very good and inexpensive place to eat!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We walked up and down the main strip debating where to eat... Many of the restaurants were expensive so we decided to try here. The sandwich was very good. Definitely, if staying in San Clemente, would eat here again. A great value for the money!

“Outstanding Sandwiches!”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

We decided to go for lunch there due to the proximity of our hotel and the fact that it was ranked #1 near us. We were a little perplex when we walked in as this place does not look like a restaurant at all and definitely more a Deli counter you find in your local grocery store.

But our opinion rapidly changed as we took the first bite: Absolutely delicious! My wife and I both went with the chicken salad sandwich and it was so fresh! My wife had hers on sourdough bread and mine on a french baguette. To my disappointment the baguette was not too fresh and the sourdough was amazing. After a few bites of mine, I asked the deli attendant if I could go with the sourdough instead. Without hesitation she immediately replaced it and apologized. Excellent customer service and phenomenal food. We will definitely go back especially since we loved eating or lunch next to the fountain outside in the courtyard!

“Summer delight”
Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

Whenever we BBQ, we pick up our meats here, and order some side dishes and fresh bread. The staff here is so friendly. This is a great place for vacationers renting places in San Clemente to shop if they want to cook in their place. Their chili is awesome!!
