Cool place with a nice outdoor seating area. I had some great soup and a very big tasty sandwich made to order. I would recommend this place for lunch and the restaurant/bar next door seemed to have a good menu too

Good spot on the main drag. Great craft beer selection, but the tequila selection was quite impressive. Was able to taste some that I've never seen before. Friendly staff. Clean restroom. Didn't eat, but saw the chili and the nachos and they both looked delicious.

My husband and I popped into the deli thinking we'd have a sandwich for a light lunch. We had no idea how huge these sandwiches are! Fresh bread was sliced really thick and was then piled with heaps of meat, cheese, and any fixings you...More

The homemade bread makes these sandwiches irresistible. Small loaves can be purchased, but get sold out daily. The wheat is our favorite. They slice the bread thick and load the sandwiches up to make a hearty meal. I believe the deli closes by 5 or...More
