This deli is on the North Shore (behind & below Frazier St.). We saw a sign but had to ask where it was. There are other restaurants & shops along River Street but you must try this one. The food is excellent.....so fresh & tasty! It gets a bit crowded; looked like a lot of business people eat there plus... More

My husband and I are vacationing in Chatanooga and this deli was recommended by a couple of shop keepers close by. Both my salad trio and my husband's stomboli were delicious. We just might go back tomorrow!

This little deli is in the basement of one of the older building on the north side of the river in Chattanooga. You can't see it from the main road when you turn east after crossing the Market Street bridge but you can easily spot it from the Walnut Street bridge. There is also a road between the buildings and... More

Reminds me of Deli's in New England where there is a focus on the food. The place may not be too pretty, and it seeing a lot of use (Business looked to be... More

Friend took me here for the first time. Oh my word, this place is great! The Stromboli was excellent, full of meat and a little rosemary in the bread, so flavorful. I will be a regular and am telling everyone about this place. A little gem in Cooliage park.

We were visiting the area and after walking through Coolidge Park and across the Walnut Street bridge we were approached by an employee of the River Street Deli giving out samples of Stromboli which tasted pretty good so we decided to go in and grab a bite to eat, they have a lot of different salads as well as sandwiches...

We happened to stumble on this place after asking a few locals. We here hesitant due to the hole in the wall appearance but gave it a try based on their recommendations. Wow!!!! We ordered numerous sandwiches and they were all amazing! My favorite was the one that comes with the pimento spread. The employees are all very nice and... More

We went there for lunch just on a walking tour of the city. We had a veggie sandwich that was very good except the bread was a little soggy. A chicken breast sandwich was really tasty. The artichoke salad was good. The salads all looked really good. Price was not bad.

Really did not live up to the reviews. Quality cuts of meat, but not enough on the sandwich, mustard was globed in one are, the may in another. The chef salad had egg salad instead of hard boiled eggs.
