“A worthy deli in Temecula”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

Hit up Rockafellas for lunch and it was a treat! Had a pastrami and roast beef with Swiss and cole slaw on rye. It was great! A cozy and classic atmosphere topped off the meal. I also grabbed a Tiramisu to-go for the wife! I will definately hit this place up again.

“New favorite! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

A new favorite for us! The sandwich was delicious with meat piled high. Garden salad was filled with fresh veggies. Cole slaw was excellent as well. Wonderful looking bakery items but just to full to try. Will definitely get some next trip!

“Nice authentic deli”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

We stopped at Rockafellas on a weekday before the lunch hour to try the pastrami. The restaurant is located in a fairly large shopping center so there is plenty of parking. The restaurant does not have a huge dining area. There are booths around the perimeter and some separate tables. When the server handed us the menu I could not believe how many items they served. They have a number of traditional Italian hot food items along with every sandwich you can think of. We were told the cook was originally from Jersey so I knew they knew how to prepare a sandwich. I was not wrong. I ordered the Pastrami on rye bread and it was enormous. The sandwich is served with a variety of kosher pickles and cole slaw or fries. The quality of the pastrami was outstanding. Little to no fat and very tender and nicely seasoned. My wife tried the patty melt and it was also very good. This is not a low price sandwich shop. Our meal with two iced teas was about 35 dollars. But I think the quality is so outstanding that it is worth shelling out the extra money. We will definitely be back.

“Big portions, wide variety, consistently great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

Glad to finally see a business do well in this location. The menu seems to have something for everyone and never seems to disappoint. The prices may seem high on your first visit, but keep in mind your kind of paying for 2x meals because the portions are so big.

“Fantastic!”

This place is great! SUPER nice and efficient staff, out of this world sandwiches (that are gigantic!) And a desert counter that you wouldn't believe! We will come here again and again.
