This is a very small deli that looks like an old house with the parking lot surrounding it. Food is quite delicious, however, there is a small counter space with some stools on the left side as you enter. Because it's a busy street, and...More

Great neighborhood deli with patient staff. The regulars will help you with the ordering process and even give suggestions on what is their favorite sandwich. You must try the deviled eggs.

I had heard a lot about this place and I finally got to try it. I was disappointed by the food. It is possible that I had built a Utopian notion of the famous egg salad sandwiches and the exuberant potato salad and the reality...More
