Yum!!!

wow, if you are looking for an excellent sandwich this is a must visit! The place is small but there is an outside patio with tables. The inside decor is not great but the food compensates that. I forget the name of the sandwich I get but it has turkey and jalepenos, that I remember. So flippin... read more

I grew up in CDM, and from a young age started going to (and loving) Gary's Deli! Now that I live 3,000 miles away, Gary's is among my must visit places every time I'm back in So-Cal! It's hard for me to get away from my standard favorite (the burger with spicy curly fries--which is excellent), but Gary's also has... More

This is a place that is open in the daytime. They have good tacos and chips and soft drinks. It can be crowded but if you go at certain times that are not busy it is pleasant to eat there. There have been times when they gave me free cookies.

We've been getting delicious sandwiches from Gary's for 14 years. The owner always remembers what my husband likes to order. I'm partial to the chicken salad sandwich. It's large, so I end up saving the second half for lunch the next day. It's always a treat for me when I eat at Gary's. Parking can be a problem, but something... More

We love Gary's! The food is consistent and delicious. We go here often. The tuna special is a must (if you like tuna.) This place is for the food, not atmosphere. This is a great stop on your way to the beach.

Order your sandwich and sit outside under the umbrellas or take it down to the beach. The service is good and I always get the hamburger, someday I'll try something else. I just can't let the burger go.

One star for nice people & good service, one for edible chow and one for neatness and cleanliness. Only the turkey is prepared in house, everything else is from outside sources. The bread, guacamole, potato salad & coleslaw are bland, mediocre supermarket packaged products or resemble them in taste & appearance. Pedestrian sandwiches simply not worth the $8-10 tariff, drive... More

Small corner deli in Corona del Mar. There is'nt much parking might have to park on a side street and walk to deli. You won't be disappointed they have a menu with lots of choices. Both of our New York style deli sandwiches were very good, we had corned beef and pastrami. Prices are very reasonable.I will go back when... More

Located on Coast Highway in Corona del Mar this is where you want to go if you are in the mood for a deli sandwich. Their turkey is roasted fresh in house and cannot be beat anywhere. Their portions are generous and prices are good.

Stopped in by chance to this small sandwich place and was blown away by the Ny turkey sandwich. I heard someone say that they roast their own turkeys . Whatever the did it was great!
