We were passing the town on the way to Tahoe and had a stop at the Blue Cow deli. Best sandwiches we have had in a while! I wish they were close to home. And love the decor! Very artistic but yet home like.

Definitely the place for lunch in Penn Valley. Great sandwiches, soups and salads. Friendly staff. Sometimes wait is longer because of number of people but it is worth the wait. Definitely worth what you pay for food
