Had the pastrami sandwich as heard it was amazing and it didn't disappoint! Served quickly and was delicious. It's obviously in an expensive area but I still think it's a touch overpriced which is why the 4 stars, the food and service deserves 5!

Classic deli packed into an efficient cubbyhole shop. All the traditional favorites, and delicious. Great spot for a quick and tasty lunch.

The philly cheese sandwich and pickles were superb! We almost missed the tiny place along Figueroa in downtown Santa Barbara. Once you can find a parking spot, let the good eats begin!

Terrific Pastrami sandwiches! We were pointed there by a local and pleasantly surprised by the delicious corned beef, roast beef and pastrami sandwiches.
