Very good local Deli

Gary's deli has been a go to place for generations of CdM kids, especially when you were at the beach and needed better food than the snack shop on the beach. No one is going to confuse Gary's with Canter's or Langer's in LA, but it is still pretty good pastrami for being at the beach in... read more

Love this place! The Matzo Ball soup is so good and I was eating so much of it along with my two teenage boys I had to learn to make this at home. The sandwiches are always good, the fries are crisp, the tacos are yummy, the hot dogs are super good too! If you're looking for a place to... More

I was surprised, that in a town like Corona Del Mar that this place is the #6 restaurant. It is a small, very average sandwich shop. You have to get in line at the cash register and give your order in and then go wait for it. Not exactly the Corona Del Mar that I have come to expect. The... More

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 delish. Great soft,... 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.
