Those long lines--it's because they're good. Plan your visit around the rush and you can skip most of the wait. Servers are always among the most pleasant I've experienced.

Great sandwich and great old fashioned deli service. A local tradition and worth the trip downtown to get a classic sandwich on great bread.

Every sandwich I've gotten from Downtown Deli has been my favorite sandwich. The meat & cheese is freshly cut, the "fixings" on top are spot on, and the bread is fresh. It's a no frills sandwich shop which is one of the best sandwich shops in town.

They offer a rye roll which I love! Fresh subs with all the fixins you would want. Fresh made salads, soups and deserts also! The owner makes a connection with his customers and this makes Downtown Deli even more special. Go before noon or the line is nuts. True testament to a great local spot for lunch.

If you go here for lunch most likely the line will be out the door.....that should tell you something. This place is great! Try the rueben sandwich. My kids love it here.
