Well, we were told this place was being sold, so it may not be open as you read this. If it is, get some sandwiches here for your hike or excursion. Standing room only, for ordering. Fantastic sandwiches, fresh incredients, awesome brownies.

Great selection of standards and funky combinations. It can get slow when it gets busy so try to go early or late. When weather is nice, you can eat on tables outside or go to a nearby park.

Cool deli, sandwich shop offering huge sandwiches made with quality ingredients. Get one of their special creations, and take a picnic up to Maroon Bells. Aspen suddenly becomes affordable for the common folk.

Fresh ingredients. Friendly place. Huge sandwiches! I ordered a simple turkey sandwich on one of their hoagie rolls. Skip the regular bread, the hoagie roll is the best! I received a huge sandwich that was enough for two people. Note: you can grab a bag of chips with your sandwich and there are assorted beverages in bottles and cans. Great... More

The sandwiches here are gigantic! Come with a partner and prepare to split one. We got a veggie sandwich and it was so fat it was hard to eat! Perfect after a hike. Service is not very friendly but we are prepared to overlook this for tasty food at affordable prices - a rarity in Aspen. They close at 4... More

Deli sandwich was decent. Don't expect NYC deli. Good options for all different types. Fresh bread and meats tasted good. Definitely reasonable for the area.

Ate lunch here and was not happy. Rude service when placing order. Order taker just looked at me like I was an inconvenience. It took 40 min to get 4 sandwiches at lunch time (they said it would take 20 min). Then they messed up my order.

I stopped by this takeout deli near closing time to get a sandwich to go. The waitress informed me they were closing in 14 minutes. I ordered my sandwich and waited. Another patron arrived and was similarly informed she had 8 minutes before closing. We both wondered why we were being so informed by a take-out restaurant. It wasn't likely... More

One of the best sandwiches in town, huge variety and all of them very tasty. High quality ingredients, honest prices. I strongly recommend.

This place was awesome right after a day of hiking Maroon Bells. Try the Garcia turkey awesomeness. They burnt the bread in some spots on the Casey penini average sandwich. The Morning Dew was 5 out of ten turtles according to my daughter. The Franklin Tower was amazing according to my other daughter. This is a true deli limited outdoor... More
