Milton's Deli has stumbled from decent to over priced poorly prepared Deli food. I had the corned beef Reuben which was the worst I've ever had. The fries were probably cooked an hour ago and were greasy hard and tasteless.

This place is amazing. Food is delicious and portions are beyond what you are charged. Great value with great food and bread that is made fresh.

The food was ok. Honestly not bad but the price was stupid expensive for what you get. No good delis around here so it was acceptable. Best in San Diego
