Get a Burrito and go sit in the river

Great burritos with great service. Custom make your burrito your way. You probably could share and the children burrito was the same size as the adult (in case you wanted to save a little). Take your burrito and go sit on the lawn or in the adirondack chairs in the river. (Oh and don't bring your... read more

Great selection of burritos , wraps and sandwiches made to order quickly by friendly staff. What more could you want. Well take them round the back and they have tables and chairs in the river so you can eat the great grub and cool off - makes it a memorable lunch stop. Romantic too!

fresh roasted turkey; fresh sour dough bread; my husband and i ordered turkey sandwhiches to go to eat at outside at our hotel. They were the best ! They included plenty of fresh tomatoes and avocado and were much larger then we expected.

After driving down hwy 1 we wanted to grab a bite to eat. The Big Sur Deli delivered exactly what we wanted, something easy & affordable. The Italian sandwich was yummy, my husband and I split it. My kids are picky eaters, so corn dogs for less than $2 and a sharp cheddar plain sandwich was a welcome find for... More

This place has it all ! Great sandwiches, hot food, tamales, salads, craft beers, reasonably priced wines, toiletries, etc. We stopped here to get a picnic for the beach, got a roast beef sandwich, chips, I nice bottle of Chardonnay, cucumber salad, tamales, and some fruit. Fast and friendly!

Stopped in the deli for some quick souvenirs and noticed that if you forgot anything along your trip in Big Sur they sure got it!

My husband and I were going for hike @Julia Pheifer Burns State Park and hadn't eaten lunch. We were looking for a chicken salad sandwich and poked our way into the Big Sur Deli. Unfortunately, no chicken salad on menu-so we ordered a roasted turkey to split. I got busy looking @t-shirts in the back (agree with other reviewer that... More

We stopped in to grab a bite on our drive down Hwy 1. We wanted to get something to go, so we thought this to be a good option. The handmade deli sandwiches only come in one size. LARGE. I wasn't up to a whole sandwich and my husband wasn't up to sharing. I couldn't see paying all that money... More

A fun store with lots of interesting and unique items. Great beer selection at this little store! They had micro brews and Olympia tall boys. There was a great selection of little fun items to give as gifts of to take home for yourself, not too touristy.
