Other reviewers have nailed it--consistently outstanding lunch entrees! If you are just looking for an great sandwich, lunch platter or soup, the Southside Deli has been serving these consistently for years. They offer a large menu and daily specials, and while very busy (well, maybe hectic at times around the lunch hour), the service is always good and the wait... More

Yep - it's always busy! But don't worry - the line goes fast & the food is definitely worth the wait! Try the New York Special - really the perfect deli sandwich! My friend swears by their blueberry muffins too! There are always some fresh & yummy soups too!

The variety on the menu is big. The sandwiches are especially great. They use very fresh and quality ingredients. This place has telephone orders, stand in line and drive up. The employees delivering the sandwiches did not have to call very many names because they already knew the customers. If you want a side with your meal they come in... More

Boy, this place is jammed, and we could see why! Our deli sandwiches were so fresh and fantastic! They also have a drive up window, so if you just want to pick something up and you're in a hurry, this is the place for you! The Southside sandwich and Italian sub were both fantastic! Really glad we stopped here!

Spouse ordered the Philly cheesesteak and stepson ordered a burger and everyone enjoyed every bite! The prices I admit are a little... More
