This place has good sandwiches. The kids sandwiches are $1.99. They are the same size as the adults. My kids really liked this place. Great service too!

Started eating at Zito's back in the late 70's when they were located on Wagon Wheel Drive. Awesome then, awesome now! Moved back to SA last year and was so glad Zito's was still around. The Serious Sandwich is always my "go to" order and I enjoy the Reuben Sandwich on occasion. Clean, comfortable, casual atmosphere. You won't be disappointed!

I love the "Serious" sandwich - it's seriously the BEST sandwich! It's huge, so ordering a half a Serious is normally the way to go! Don't go by the exterior or interior of the restaurant - this place has been serving the best sandwiches since I can remember - and that was back in 1985 that I found them!

Good variety of sandwiches, but trust me, you'll want to get the special sandwich! And just get the "half", it's huge! The potato salad is delicious and mostly mustard based, deliciously tangy. We tried the Reuben, Italian, special, and roast beef, I would get all of them again, but will from now on order the special. The bread has a... More

I have been going to Zito's for about 40 years and each sandwich is as good as the last one. Family owned and operated, every sandwich on the menu is good. I love the roast beef, and many people like what they call the Serious. The food is reasonably priced and served in a casual atmosphere. Avoid noon, as the... More

This place is awesome! Sandwiches were amazing. Especially their signature sandwich. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but worth the stop.

I'm so glad I was told about Zito's Deli. You'd think with the diverse sandwich menu, some sandwiches would be great and some just ok. WRONG. They are all yummy. We'll the majority of them because I'm still working my way through this delicious menu. A hole-in-the-wall place that you'd easily miss if you didn't have an insiders scoop on... More

I have been coming to Zitos' for years. Don't let the decor change your mind about this place.. Eat a sandwich, the SERIOUS SANDWICH is the bomb. love it. The owner is awesome, and knows half the people coming in the door. If you want to eat where the locals do..... This is the place.

The place in San Antonio to get a fantastic sandwich on a consistent basis. Busy most of the time, but, worth the short wait.

I haven't been here for a while and I was happy that they expanded! Now, there are plenty of places to sit. I had the Roast Beef Italia and it is totally tasty! Their food is fabulous! My son had the meatball sandwich and he was impressed, too.

Thank Sandy H
