We stopped while traveling through Big Sur after discovering there was an hour wait at Nepenthe. This is a great stop with delicious taquitos. The only problem is the lack of parking.

One of our most memorable meals, even though it was mainly sandwiches! Great value and so so fresh! Considering the area we were in, it was excellent value too!

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 own food, you're not... 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

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
