The Stromboli was excellent! You should def find his hole in the wall and enjoy some NY style deli shop! You will not be disappointed.

Really enjoyed this food!! Nice portions and all very fresh. Could use some updating interior but food good enough to ignore decorations

The best deli I have ever eaten at period. Let Bruce the owner pick your sandwich for you he is a master at creating sandwich extremes.

This place is great. It is a true NY style deli down to the owner. You walk up to order and I ask the owner who is taking the orders what I should have and he says, "how do I know, I dont know you." I say Ill try the Ruben and he says, "try the Philly Ruben," I say... More

The Ruben is great... the brisket is even better! This is authentic NY deli style food. A must visit while in Chattanooga.

absolutely one of the best, if not the best deli in town. the owner comes up with new sandwiches and they are always good. Just don't ask him to substitute anything or make it less fatting. He hates it when someone messing with his food (creation). Just go with it. You cant go wrong with his pick

We stopped here on a way from Georgia up to Nashville. We had read the reviews online and thought it sounded like a good place for lunch. We were really glad we stopped here. We were there on a Monday, and the owner (Bruce) gave us a sample of the stromboli to try. It was delicious, and we had it... More
