Best deli this side of NYC

Primo's boasts a large menu, tried most, loved them all. All sandwiches come with a pickle and chips. The dip is extra, but well-worth it. If your group is more than 2-4, I would suggest calling ahead. Never have visited when it wasn't busy. A bit noisy, but tolerable. There is also a large beer... read more

If you're used to real delis. you're probably going to be disappointed by Primo's. The menu is pretty standard, and the beer selection goes way beyond the norm, but the food is just mediocre. For example, I ordered a honey ham sandwich, but there was no honey flavor to the ham at all. Not a lot of any kind of... More

I'm originally from Akron and try to make it a point to get to Primo's whenever I'm back in town. I LOVE the Italian sub and chips with ranch dip. It's so unhealthy, but absolutely worth the splurge!

O my so good. Every sandwich I have gotten is made the way I ask and the chefs have it down. I recommend the spicy Italian but I have tried many sandwiches and everything has been excellent this is a great deli. I highly recommend giving it a try.

I have been going to Primo's since it opened - this is just an honest local deli with a wicked beer selection. Try the Canadian Club or the Rubin - the potato salad is excellent - and on Fridays and Saturdays the homemade Chowder is the top.

Great sandwich and beer place. And the chips are good too. They are not open Sunday or Monday. They are worth the wait.

I started going to Primo's when I was in high school some 35+ years ago. It was located by the now abandon Rolling Acres Mall (search YouTube) and many other businesses. Most of them have left the area and/or went out of business. Primo's has endured the test of time because of the quality and variety of foods served there.... More

Had driven by Primo's on numerous occasions and wondered what the food was like. On the day we stopped in they were lightly busy so figured must be ok. We went in and felt right at home with the decor and friendly atmosphere. Wasn't drinking beer that day but they have great selection. They start you off with a complimentary... More

Every sandwich made to order by a skilled set of cooks. Fabulous roast beef warm or cold is my favorite. Free chips while you wait to be served. Careful parking, it is a bit tricky and somewhat dangerous pulling out into traffic. Enjoy ! Btw, for large groups you can pre order and have the meals ready for you when... More

A friend gave me an open invitation to check this place out in Akron. And I had some business to deal with, so stopping by to have lunch was not out of the way. Primo's (and I don't know why the downtown location closed) has a nice little home feeling in the seating and the way you are treated by... More
