Over priced but large portions

I decided to try out Milton's one more time. I now remember why it's taken me years to return. For 2 half sandwiches and 2 cup of soup, it was $50.00! Who pays that price for soup and sandwich??? The service was lack luster, the server never checked on us after he brought the food out. For a... read more

Very busy restaurant no matter what time of day. Very large portions for every entree, service is great. I have had a ton of business breakfasts and lunches there, it's a popular place for that.

I live a mile from Milton's, and I like to go there for lunch some times. The menu is extensive. My wife and I often split a lean corned beef sandwich. It is excellent as is the side of potato salad that accompanies it. Milton's and DZ Akins are the two best Delis in San Diego in my opinion.

Fast & attentive service! Sandwiches contained SO much meat, I had to take half to go. Everything is fresh. And after, there's a neat bakery for you to take desert to go. The chocolate cake us to die for! Do to let the crappy parking scare you away. It is worth the few trips around the parking lot to find... More

Four of us ate lunch here yesterday. The food, service and atmosphere were incredible. We have loved there bread here in California for years. Not until yesterday did we know there was a New York-style deli and restaurant right here in in SoCal under the same ownership. Love the vintage photos throughout the building. It's refreshing in a world mediocrity... More

As a transplanted NYC girl we are always on the hunt for good deli. I have eaten at miltons as least twenty times so I think I have given it enough consideration. The food overall is a poor excuse for deli. Brisket extremely dry. Pastrami and corned beef doesn't measure up. Twenty dollars for a dried out brisket sandwich and... More
