Nice little downtown deli (maybe that's where they got their name, eh?). Decor of a 50s dinner and fantastic wraps. Chili and grilled chicken was what I tried and it was delish. Very friendly staff. I'd give it 5 stars if you had some tunes...More

Food was very slow in coming despite being a non-busy day. And then it was only lukewarm and small portions.

The Ellis Island Ruben is great. Large. Like two homemade sandwiches. The turkey with artichoke is very good. It's right next to Brix. If Brix is too busy, try the deli. Free cone, if you like them on facebook!

Had the Ellis Island Reuben. Lots of flavor, tender corned beef. Whole sandwich is enough for two. Had the pickle, too. Check out the menu, lots of choices.
