Fantastic doesn't require fancy

Simply great food and great deli sandwiches delivered with great service. One of the best secret lunch spots in Birmingham.

All the incredible sandwiches notwithstanding, the butcher shop part of this place is a standout! The filets are the best I've ever bought in Birmingham, and now, if I'm going to grill steaks, if I can't get by Mr. P's, I grill something else. They are that good! If you're in the area for lunch, stop in for a sandwich.... More

Best deli / Butcher shop in Birmingham ! Service is always as good as the food and meats from the butcher shop. The ONLY time we eat any meat other than what we get here is when we eat out or when we are out of town. I have been doing business here for at least 7 years and they... More

I had read other reviews touting the rib eye sandwich at this deli, and they were right! My husband and I stopped by to grab some sandwiches to go to a picnic, and instead of trying two different options, neither of us could get away from the rib eye. It was sliced/chopped on a fresh bun, served French dip style... More

We have stopped at Mr. P's on the way to Florida for three years. It is such a great alternative to fast food (although it's pretty fast!) and breaks up the trip nicely. It's easy to find and not far off the interstate so it is perfect for us. Every sandwich I've had, as well as what the rest of... More

We found Mr P's on Trip Advisor while driving from Atlanta to Memphis. We were looking for a place to eat that was not fast food. The front of the store is a small grocery store with the deli and butcher counter in the back. There is a huge selection of sandwiches. The meat was delicious. There is a small... More

Recently voted the best deli in Birmingham, so the secret is now out. Residents in Bluff Park, like myself, frequent this treasure for its fresh and creative sub sandwiches (two pages of options using only freshly sliced meats) and for its butcher shop. The steaks are so good (with Mr. P's housemade marinate/seasoning) on our own grill, that we rarely,... More

Not sure about the whole sandwich meal side of things. We went in to get the monthly meal deal. Comes in a couple different varieties. One thing is for sure, if you don't have a deep freeze, it won't fit in your home with just the normal meal deal. Maybe the little one. Everything was top notch, the service was... More

My Brother and our wives were in here yesterday for lunch, no issue getting seated. You order from the counter and then sit & your meal is delivered to your table by number. My wife and I had a Reuben and also tried the Banana Pudding. Both were great, almost more sandwich than you could handle at one sitting. Prices... More

After hearing people rave about this place, I finally decided to try it. I just found it ok. The meats were very good, but the rest was just ok. The bread was just regular boring bread, almost on the sweet side, and I think the bread is what makes the sandwich. The servings were big and the value was pretty... More
