This is a delicious little deli that has 77 reviews on Google Maps but I can't seem to find it here on trip advisor. Thought you might want to add it.

I great place!

I was driving in the area and happened to see this eatery. Stopped in and had the shrimp po boy and New England clam chowder. They were both delicious. The deli sandwiches looked good too. So I plan to go back and try one. Stop on in and give it a try.

If you are into incredible sub sandwiches and awesome live blues music, this is the place to go to. Even though the place was jammed packed, the service was incredibly fast and courteous. A must stop!

Wonderful food. Fantastic environment! Fast, friendly service, even when the line is out the door. If you're in St.Louis and miss this, you've missed the best meal in the city, period.

I visited during a street (blues) festival event. I found the place small, friendly, with good sandwiches and fun beverage/soda selections. It reminds me of Potbelly, but with more character and friendlier staff.

Some of the best sandwiches you'll find in St. Louis. Vinnie is awesome and he just makes my day. I've not had a bad sandwich there ever. It gets very crowded when bands play, but it's so worth it. On nice days, take your sandwich outside to enjoy the music. Everyone is friendly and happy there, enjoying the amazing, yummy... More

This place is a great place for lunch. Food is great tasting and the price is right. On Thursday Nights they usually have a band. You might need to bring a chair if you come late.

Sop by and enjoy a Benton Park special or a tasty chili dog. Great selection of premium cane sugar sodas also!

I love this place! It's great to come on a Saturday, have a sandwich a beer and listen to some music. You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. If you are in St. Louis and looking for a great neighborhood joint, make a visit.

A friend and I went here while visiting St. Louis. On a whim, we decided to give this place a try. This place was great! I don't have a negative thing to say about it. The service was fast, the outdoor seating is nice, and the food was fantastic! I had The Roberto, which just thinking about it makes me... More
