This deli is not far from Lookout Mountain. We traveled there after our visit to Ruby Falls. There are several sandwich offerings ranging from hamburger with fried green tomatoes to vegetarian offerings. Our group of 5 were quite pleased with our meal.

We walked around the area finding that Monday was the 'closed' day for several eateries, got a suggestion from a bike shop. We were welcomed, followed the suggestion and enjoyed an excellent lunch at nominal cost.
