There is also a menu board with part of the menu and prices. I ordered a Rueben and the price seemed reasonable until I saw how little meat... More

I had an issue with a comment an employee made while i was paying for my food. When i called back and spoke with the store manager it sounded like she put... More

I was there today for the first time. Everyone looked like they did not want to be there. No body acknowledged me for several minutes when I was the only one in line. When they did they just told me I will be with you in a bit. My order was called in, but I waited long, it could of... More

I have always ordered the hot ham and Swiss on pita (my personal favorite)...and my mom the turkey sub...you can never go wrong at SKIPS DELI......

Short hours and in an obscure little strip center - but still worth the visit. Best subs and salads in town. Great lunch spot. Sandwiches named for locals.

If you are looking for a great sub like you got when you were kids - this is it!!!! They put massive amounts of meat and cheese along with all the fixings. They steam every sub and put a special greek seasoning on each one. The sub is the exact same every time you eat there. Well worth the money!!!!
