This is the type of place we love. It's off the beaten, unique, and has great food. We stopped for lunch. Our group had the reuben, French Dip, Chili, and Turkey Cheddar. Very good!

What a great find.... A truly local spot...when we entered the door, everyone turned to see who was coming in. A fun and friendly establishment. Hot soup and a sandwich on a cool and very rainy Saturday afternoon was perfect. Great food and exceptional service....More

This deli has a history of making the best Ruben sandwich and most unusual chili in town for as long as I can remember. Local beer memorabilia, cans bottles, current and old, and music on the weekend.

Charming classic bar deli. Antiques and atmosphere. Great food. The service was good and had a home town feel. I am sure that nights are fun too - little set for live music. The food was great.
