Probably the best deli in the San Diego Area!

Probably the best deli in the San Diego Area! All of the Ruben sandwiches are superb and enormous. The turkey pot pie someone had at our table was excellent as well ... really good diner. The bread, now in supermarkets speaks for itself.

What a great find for breakfast. The food was delicious. The restaurant is super clean. The staff is very friendly. It was a great place to take the kids for breakfast. Everyone was able to find something they liked to eat. I will be back again.

We went for lunch. I ordered sides of bacon, potato pancakes, a cheese blintz, and orange juice. The bacon was thick and tasty! The juice was fresh and ice cold. The potato pancakes were burned. The waitress didn't come back for a while. : ( The cheese blintz had an orange color to them and were very sweet; I didn't... More

Milton's has been around for a LONG time and they just seem to get better as the years go by. My only complaint is the size of the portions......SO BIG! I can't imagine how anyone can finish one of their sandwiches but it tastes even better when you take it home :) I took advantage of their Saturday Pizza for... More

The surroundings are extremely pleasant with high ceilings and old local photographs on the walls. However, it was busy at lunch time and the noise level was a bit too high for the comfort level of both my friend and myself. The menu was very extensive and also consisted of daily specials. In the end, I opted for the turkey... More

When I think of Milton's I think of the amazing bread that you get at the grocery store. Dining at Milton's, well they fell short, service was bad, it took forever to hunt down our server to get our check. Food was diner food, nothing to write home about, hollandaise sauce was terrible, like the Knorr packet that one can... More

There aren't too many places in San Diego to find good deli. Thank goodness for Milton's! Great location! It's right down the street from the Del Mar race track, the beach, and next to wonderful shops in Flower Hill mall. My test for good deli is matzo ball soup and chopped liver. Both scored top points for flavor and portions.... More
