Growing up this was the standard all other deli sandwiches were compared to. Nowhere else in town measured up for quality, quickness and value. Ate here when I was home at Christmas and it was still a treat!

slow service, high prices for so-so sandwiches, dull decor, and snotty servers. Not worth the bother.

I have friends who love this place, but I always think it's just okay. Home made bread and fresh goodies from the adjoined bakery next door. Decent quality. Casual dining. Closed on Monday and holidays. Some specialty sandwiches that are distinct. Average meal per person is around $12 if you get soup.

Never have had anything bad from Homers. Food is always fresh and good. Any Clintonian knows this and would agree.

Homer's Deli has the best sandwiches in town! My favorite is the Mad Russian, which is similar to a Reuben but with their own slaw rather than sauerkraut. The soup is yummy, but the pasta salad rivals my own homemade. Give them a try on Main Avenue. You won't be disappointed.
