This is a gem in the middle of New Providence. They have the best sloppy joe's in the area. Great subs, great prepared food, perfectly clean -- and all at a great value served to you by really good people. This is the kind of place we should all patronize. They work hard to please you here, and pleased you... More

It's a great NJ deli. The NP Special is a unique sandwich with 3 slices of pumpernickel with a slab of roast beef on one layer and a slab of ham on the other with mayo salt and pepper. The coup d'gras are thin slices of deli pickles which just makes a great contrast with the meats. Try it or... More

The newly renovated sandwich shop is one of the best around. Their signature sandwiches are the NP Special and the Dagwood. Both are great. So are the sloppy Joe's.

Everyone is wonderful, friendly, and so helpful.The location is right on the main street of New Providence. There is no better deli around that will serve and treat like Avenue. We can't wait for football season!

I've been coming here for over 15 years. I always get some kind of turkey sub or sloppy joe and salt/vinegar chips. The meat is always freshly sliced to order and high quality. I would have given 4 stars in the past, but recent renovations have made this place even better. Another positive about this place is that they offer... More

Need a great sandwich, chips and a Vitamin Water? Avenue Deli is the place to go. The food is amazing...the staff is the real deal...and the place has just been totally redone creating a "ma and pa"/brand new vibe. Head in next time you're in NP and order a joe. You'll be glad you did!

Hey, I will easily travel several towns over to get a real deli sandwich from this place. All their sandwiches are tasty and flavorful usually topped with some king of dressing or sauce. They move quickly and takeout/checkout is painless. I highly recommend this for good deli style eats.

Always get the sloppy joe. Have had others at other establishments. No one does it better than Avenue Deli. I get the ham version. Sign on door suggests they will shortly close for a bit of time for [much needed] renovations.
