I had the Turkey & Avocado – Turkey, sliced Avocado, Mayo, Lettuce, Tomato on squaw. If you love beer...this is the place to come---German, Belgium and American micro-beers available both in fridge, shelf and at the bar. Seating inside n out. Ladies who work the front were all very nice. Sandwich was affordable and very fresh. Bread was delish! Right... More

This is a local gem. The sandwiches are always fresh, creative and delicious. They have an amazing selection of hand crafted beers and market items... this is family run with very personal service. We love it!

The Hollingshead's have been in the deli business in Orange for 50 plus years. They were pioneers in beer appreciation well before the current craft beer revival. They have a great selection of beers on tap and by the bottle. Their strengths are American, German and Belgian brews. Your food choices are basically sandwiches and deli salads which go great...

Just learned of this deli even though we have lived nearby for over 30 years. What a loss! The process is a bit confusing. Do you get your beer from the bar first or do you order your sandwich first. Went with a group from the office and they were blown away by the sandwiches. They had Pliny the Elder... More

Hollingshead Delicatessen is unusual, in a most positive way. The Deli/Bar transports you to some place far....it's almost out of place in Orange. It's eclectic and schizophrenic. An act of scrupulous mayhem. There are an assortment of gummies, candy, chocolate, chips, beer and of course sandwiches. It's a veritable nightmare for the obsessive compulsive - you have to surrender to... More

I visited this place on the recommendation of the patrons and beertenders at a local Anaheim brewery. I'm glad I checked before heading out as they stop serving sandwiches at 6pm. However, if you call before 6, they will make and hold it for you. They do close at 8pm during the week, so you don't have THAT much time.... More

Tucked away in the corner of a small strip mall, this place has the best sandwiches. They serve over 500 different beers, so a lot of customers are here to buy liquor, but the best part are their sandwiches. The bread is always super fresh and soft, and they always pile a lot of meat onto your sandwich. The owner... More

I love visiting here. The selection is amazing. LIke unbelievably amazing, rare, unusual and outstanding beers. I've never eaten here, but it's always packed. I am usually in just to buy beer, and see if I can get out for under $75.

The number of beers they carry is amazing. The reputation of the establishment can be seen by the difficulty in finding a place to sit. Sandwiches (until 6 p.m., I believe) are good, but a bit pricey for their size. It is a fun place, filled with Green Bay Packers memorabilia. No fancy decor, but the atmosphere is like an... More

You will be amazed at how many different beers are in this place. The sandwiches are made with quality, fresh ingredients and staff is very hard-working. Gets very busy for lunch, but worth it. Try to avoid the standard 12-1 lunch to enjoy your meal a little better.
