The Real Breakfast Burrito!

I have been in this place a second time after having a traditional egg breakfast. This second time I had my mind made up I was going to try their chorizo burrito after having a bite of my wife's on the previous visit. Is this place close to you? If you are visiting downtown Phoenix, it... read more

Real early in the morning in downtown Phoenix, outside of the hotels can be tough. If you can wait until about 0800, this is a great choice to eat breakfast. It is centrally located in the downtown area and only minutes walk from most of the hotels. This place is located south of Monroe on the west side of Central.... More

Was recommended for breakfast by our hotel. At 7:30am on a weekday, we were the only customers. No employees in sight. Called out and a gentlemen came out of a back room. He said someone would be with us shortly. We waited briefly and walked out as we had an 8:00 speech to attend to.

I had a breakfast burrito with choriso, not exactly a good choice for a deli sandwich shop. It was OK, very generous, but looking over the more typical deli fare, the sandwich makings looked delicious and sandwiches are obviously all fresh made on the spot as ordered.

Ive been here two times over 2 years, and the food stays the same, excellent. Great food and they give you plenty. You may have to park around the corner and walk down but well worth it. Very popular for lunch. A friend who is local to Phoenix recommended it.

This is a deli where you go to the counter to order, a bit like a cafeteria. So, at first we were not enchanted. We were a bit past the breakfast announced hour, but they still accepted our order without fussing. The food was good, big portions and hot. Not reheated things like you see other places. While we were... More

Generally when traveling I trust the tripadvisor restaurant rankings. However, this restaurant was not my choice, rather a coworkers. However, of the three restaurants we ate at in Phoenix, this was the best. Loved the corned beef! Good sized fresh cuts of meats, and the soup was good. Would definitely go again.

The Downtown Deli has a unique menu. You really should try their chocolate scones!

They have one great breakfast burrito, and they are a real neighborhood place. They are friendly, they remember your name and your order. They have great sandwiches for lunch. Overall good local place! Definitely give it a try!
