We stopped here for quick, cheap lunch during a day trip through Big Sur. The value was excellent, including the sandwiches a higher quality than we were expecting.

We tried the buffalo wings, chimichanga and sandwiches and all were tasty. Great place to stop for lunch.

We were lucky to find the this place as we had planned to pick up sandwiches before heading into the park. We didn’t know there would be very limited options. But the Big Sur deli had awesome sandwiche options that were fresh and tasty!

Huge, thick slices of bread make for very large sandwiches. The bread was fresh but the turkey had no taste. The deli is one of the options you have to grab some food if you are in the area.

We stopped here for a quick lunch. The deli offers a great variety of sandwiches and Mexican type food. I enjoyed the beef enchilada. There is a patio behind the deli were you can sit and eat.
