I love this deli! It is very popular which is obvious by the line of people waiting to order all the way down the side of the building. It is totally worth the wait! I love the Benton Park sandwich and the red beans and rice. The deli is small and only seats inside only maybe 30-40. There are tables outside for nice days. The blues music creates a nice atmosphere with memorabilia lining the walls. If you are lucky they may have a band playing.

This is by far our favorite sandwich shop! The sandwiches are always perfect, the prices are good, and on Thursday and Saturday nights they have live music. You can definitely tell that Blues City is a neighborhood hang-out with regulars who come like clockwork. We go for lunch when we have some extra time and stop by once in a while for dinner. The line can get long, but usually it moves quickly and you can by drinks and beer from the servers while you wait. If you haven't been, do yourself (and your taste buds) a favor and go!

Don't let the line out the door discourage you from stopping in! It goes really fast! They are very efficient and get your food to your table quickly. Fabulous sandwiches and great selection of drinks.

The line around the building looks overwhelming but they have this down to a science. You will get in surprisingly quickly. The service is always friendly and never feels rushed; they never seem annoyed with you no matter how busy they are. They get our big office orders correct every time. My favorite is the Chicken Shack Ranch; most of my coworkers get the Uncle Sam's Club. They have COKE AND PEPSI AND DR. PEPPER. ?!?!? The sandwiches are enormous and if you have self control you can save the other half for later - but it's difficult because they're delicious.
