I visited here with my family members earlier this month while we were out shopping. I ordered a Tuna Melt. I was happy with the phenomenal taste and the large quantity. I will be visiting soon next time I'm in the area.

Just visited Joe's for the first time and was really impressed. This is a very casual, small place, with delicious food right on Hertel Ave. Stopped in for lunch off the recommendation of a friends and was not disappointed. Ordered the Sweet Baby James wrap (grilled chicken, crispy fried avocado, chipotle ranch) and it was excellent. The sandwiches and wraps... More

This is a great place for lunch! They have seating inside and outside, which is covered by a nice awning. They have quite a variety of sandwiches and wraps. They even have a fish fry. They have soups, salads, pasta salads, and more. Our sandwiches were prepared nicely, tasted great, and were all fresh. The staff were all very friendly.... More

Love this place! They have great sandwiches and now serve beer as well. Service is quick and this place is nice if looking for a quick bite, or just a nice lunch to catch up with an old friend.

I've been here a few times and I just love the flavors they have. Their sandwiches are giant and are so good tasting. I also had a soup flight, which is awesome because I love trying a bunch of different things. The soups were great too. A little outdoor patio is nice in the summer. Decent prices. Good for lunch.

Joe's Deli is Buffalo's best deli, without question. It is also one of my favorite places in Buffalo to go for lunch. They never disappoint. The bread, veggies, cheese, meats and salads are always fresh and perfectly prepared. The menu is massive. They have every type of sandwich you could ever think of and lots of original ideas.

Well, I had the Frank STallone, because I wanted to try sth like american steak sandwitch but not quite. This was exactly was I was looking for and was the best sandwitch I had in the States. THE BEST. Nothing else to be said.

Have eaten at both Joe's locations and attended events he has catered. His soups are delicious and sandwiches are filling and yummy. Stuffed hot peppers are excellent, chicken cutlets, arancini and other catering featured dishes are awesome. Newest location on Elmwood features great beers in addition to dinner specials. Joe's provides high quality deli deliciousness!
