“Delicious and filling sandwiches”
Reviewed 18 October 2011

Although it is hard to find, this is a great place for sandwiches. My husband ordered a whole sandwich and I ordered a half sandwich and cup of soup. The sandwiches were very big for the price - the whole sandwich looked like two sandwiches and the half-sandwich looked like a regular sandwich. The soup was really good and filling enough that I only had half of my half-sandwich (and my husband had half of his whole sandwich). We ate the leftovers the next day for lunch when we hiked the Rubicon Trail. Only complaint is that there isn't a sign for the restaurant that is easily visible from the street.

“Exta Duty for weary travelers”
Reviewed 8 October 2010

We got a relly good pastrami sandwich because the manager fixxed us one even though we arrived fifteen minutes after they had closed. The sandwich was differnt but good, cheddar cheese and jalapenos instead of the tradiional swiss cheese and dill pickle. The day was beautiful an we dined on the picnic tables outside. The only drawback is the difficulty finding the place, which is because of city signage regulations.

“A Wedding Caterer I would use again!”
Reviewed 31 August 2010

Full Belly Deli (aka. "Blue Lake Catering") catered a lakefront wedding at our house this summer. Owners, Tom and Eric, worked beautifully with bride and hosts to develop a menu suitable for the season, occasion, family preferences AND budget. Menu favorites include stuffed mushroom hors d'oeurves, homemade raviolis, barbecued tri-tip steaks (FBD rolled on site an awesome stainless steel BBQ and blue, bug-repelling food cook tent), fresh, local farmer market grilled veggies & their fabulous, just-out-of-the-oven dinner rolls. FBD brought in a great serving staff, bartender & food/BBQ chefs; the bar, keg of Heineken, ice, all serving trays, etc., were nicely presented; everything arrived on time and no hassles; staff did a great job on clean up and, at our request, even bagged up some of the left overs that we enjoyed the day after the wedding when we were all exhausted to even think about cooking!

It was a pleasure working with Eric, Tom and the great staff of Full Belly Deli/Blue Lake Catering!

“Awesome caterer in North Tahoe area. Great sandwiches too.”
Reviewed 31 August 2010

Eric and Tom from Full Belly Deli recently catered our Tahoe City wedding. They did an AWESOME job! They were very patient with us as we went back and forth with menu options, were friendly and easy to work with, and helped us coordinate our entire catering plans long-distance. Their prices were reasonable and they were able to work within our budget. They came all the way out to our site to get a feel for the venue, kitchen facilities, etc., stayed on top of things through the entire process, and accommodated our last-minute changes and random requests. They arrived on time, were very professional, and the food was AMAZING! Usually wedding food isn't very good, but ours was. It was fresh, the right temperature, presented nicely, and tasted great. We received a lot of compliments from our guests, which again I think is pretty unusual when it comes to wedding food.

We would definitely work with them again and we highly recommend them to anyone having a wedding or event in the North Tahoe area. What a great find in an area were catering choices are a bit limited. Thanks Eric and Tom!!

P.S. We also stopped in for lunch one day, and their sandwiches were great!
