“Long Lines Because Everything Is Great!”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

This is our favorite Deli! The sandwiches are fabulous, they have a great selection and you can make up your own, the salads are yummy, the homemade daily soups delicious, the deviled eggs are to-die-for, and they have a huge selection of drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and sides and desserts.

“Great Deli.”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

They make a good sandwich here. They will make it however you want like most places do. Their prices are slightly better than other deli's. one of the things I like about this place is you can actually get sprouts on your sandwich. Try that at Togo's. Don't get me wrong I like Togo's as well. would like them better if they offered sprouts. If you want a good sandwich for a fair price this is a good place to go.

“Best Sandwiches”
Reviewed 14 March 2012

From the outside, it looks like a small liquor store across from a 7-11. Inside, at the back of the store is a deli with 4-5 people making sandwiches to order. Most of the sandwiches are a bargain in the $5-6 range. My hot pastrami & Swiss was $6.25 and was delicious! They have a large selection of meats and cheeses from which to choose and their bread comes from a local bakery (Aldo's, I think) and is excellent---nothing spoils a good sandwich like lousy bread.
In addition to sandwiches, they have a couple varieties of soup, potato salad, deviled eggs, chips, artisan sodas, microbrewery beer, etc. This place is a real find!
