Mountaintown Sandwich..SOOO GOOD!!

I was in town for business and saw the 'Deli Junction' sign and thought, "It's a good day for Pastrami." I ordered the Mountaintown...wow! Awesome flavors. One of the best sandwiches ever. Try it. Also got a dog 'all the way' including chili and slaw. Fantastic. I can't recommend enough. Staff is... read more

I have eaten there several times due to the general lack of food in Ellijay. There food is just ok deli food. The real pit fall is that if you walk in for even a minute you will smell like sliced sandwitch meat. We wont eat there anymore at luch because we feel we need to change before coming back... More

This is the place to go for a sandwich in East Ellijay. It has great food and better customer service. Beats the box store sandwich.

The place has great food at a reasonable price. The staff is very friendly and after you have been there a few times will start to call you by name. It is owned and operated by a father and his two sons. They are good people. I eat there for lunch at least 3 times a week. For the best... More

We eat here at least once a week for lunch. We like that our food is made to order and hot and fresh when we get it. We almost always get the same things, because they are hard to beat! So we definitely recommend the chili dog, the Reuben and the turkey Reuben. The bread for the Reubens is grilled... More

We've been a fan of the Ellijay Deli since they opened in the downtown area. Followed them to their new location now on Craig Street, and eat there fairly often. Our favorite is the Mountaintown sandwich, which just rocks our socks. Service is always friendly, and they're always eager to please.

I had a fantastic Ruben sandwich at Ellijay Deli today. It was perfectly grilled on the outside and totally delicious. I also tried some interesting chips- Rosemary and lemon flavored. Service was quick and friendly. Overall a great lunch!!
