I went to Erik's twice. Food was excellent. My group included locals who recommended the Erik burger, which is ham and cheese, the broccoli cheese soup, and the salad that had chicken and Gorgonzola. The ambience was informal, family-friendly, and clean.

I guess my expectations were too high when I stopped in at Erik's as a "safe" spot. In the end, the staff were more interested in each other, and while my sandwich was huge, it was bland and sloppy. A great disappointment.

A great bowl of homemade soup and a huge sandwich of goodness. I was impressed by the freshness and price was reasonable.

I love Erik's Deli wherever I go in this area. Pilgrim's Progress is the best sandwich ever. Chicken Vegetable soup is also excellent. Always nice people and a smile :-)

I had about half an hour to find myself a place to eat and while I was driving near by, I saw a sign saying 'we have soup'. Since it was a cold day and wanted a good warm soup, I decided to check the place out. I walked in, bought half of a vegetarian sandwich and a bowl of... More

Large open room but cozy and good sandwiches. Order at the counter and they bring it to your table. Classic sandwiches, chili and soups...

We have been visiting various Eriks' Delicafes for over 30 years and are rarely disappointed. Their food is always fresh and tasty and their sandwiches are very inventive. When you're hungry, want good food at reasonable prices, you just can't beat an Eriks.

I hadn't been to Erik's in years...wow, the sandwiches are still great for not much money and they combinations they dream up are really good. Great local atmosphere and great tasting salads, soups, and sandwiches. A great place to take the family for lunch.

We enjoyed the soup and half sandwich combo for lunch. I enjoyed the DelMonte veggie sandwich--loaded with avocado slices and sprouts! I paired it with the Tomato basil bisque soup. Delicious! The other person had the Reuben with the chicken veggie rice soup. Great lunch spot. Pricing great and portion sizes were perfect.
