Love this deli. Great sandwiches, a surprisingly big menu. Catered from here for a work event and everyone raved about it. Highly recommend checking them out!

Made to order sandwiches and very nice little deli. Have fresh options and some frozen items too. Downside is finding parking.

Love this place! All orders are made to order....very fresh! Generous helpings at good prices. My only reason for not giving a 5 rating is that the deli is very small, sometimes you wait, but it is worth it!

It's a great local deli. I like either the Ruben panini or the mufalota. All the Italian subs are great and they typically have homemade soup. Great place you should visit!
