Tip Top meats offers an interesting variety of tasty, hearty foods, desserts and meals. Their shop stocks an imported variety of foreign food products--including German, Italian and Asian. Pretzel lovers can get fresh German pretzels daily! The meat/deli services are extensive. Although there are no organic offerings, their selection is impressive! Offering organics would have given it 5 stars! I... More

Went there only to buy some German food items. Restaurant was full so breakfast must be awesome. Workers all very helpful and friendly.

We had the prime rib weekend special, which was okay and added two sausages, which were tasty. This was the right amount of food for two people and including a beer and glass of wine, our total was $28. Can't beat that for value! Just be prepared for a long wait in line to order.

This Deli was recommended to us and we tried it for a meal togo. Ordered their steak and baked potato. Picked it up just before they closed at 8:00 pm. They were very friendly and I will visit them again. One meal was plenty for both my wife and I.

When we used to live in Oceanside we would stop by on our way from work and pick up dinner at least once a week. Great food, especially the hot potato salad, rottkohl, and schnitzel. The market has a wonderful display of imported European foods at reasonable prices. The butcher shop has amazing meats of choice quality. Treat yourself to... More

I went there for the Big John Breakfast and was very disappointed in the result! They gave me scrambled eggs instead of fried. I did not send it back because of the very long wait to get served the first time. I had the bacon and bratwurst for meat sides. When I asked for more bacon, they said they don't... More

This place is a little off of the coast highway, but definitely worth the little side trip and if you are looking for value, you can not beat this one...... It is a butchery shop and the portion are huge, no way I could eat that whole sandwich in one setting, the German potato salad was as good as I've... More

We go here once a month. It is a piece of the old Bavaria and has a European grocery market attached. Its a lot of food for the month and you should not be on a diet this night. That said, you may want to plan on a doggie bag. You go to the restaurant counter and order your meal... More

My wife had prime rib and I had chicken and lots of cabbage and potatoes. We stuffed ourselves and still brought lots home. We brought home our desserts too, Black Forest cake and a Napolean--great. Wine and soda pop completed the trifecta (my wife works at the racetrack). Go if you're in the neighborhood, it's an experience you cannot duplicate... More
