The menu is small but changes from time to time. The food tastes pretty good too. But the couple of times I have eaten there, I always end up thinking it could have been so much better. The sandwiches are good, but never thoroughly warm. The grilled sandwiches are toasted and crispy on the outside, warm around the edges, and... More

My daughter and I ate here on a Saturday. The service and food was great. I had the sandwich special and my daughter got the soup. We both enjoyed our meals and the character of the place is fun. I would recommend this place for a local joint to eat. Better than any chain place around.

After hearing the specials of the day from the man behind the counter, I had to try the prosciutto and fig sandwich and tomato artichoke soup. Both were superb! The restaurant looks like your average deli, but they know flavors there and what I ate was gourmet. Quick service, friendly staff.

Best roast beef sandwich we've ever had. The turkey was also good. A great little kids menu, too. This is a great little spot in a walking area. Park once and stroll around the beautiful area

I have been coming to this place for years. Come early on Mondays (I think this is right, check with the restaurant first) to get the famous Stromboli. My go-to is the grilled turkey with brie. Owner Bruce will always make you feel welcome here.

This is a popular downtown establishment that we've visited for years. On our recent visit, our food was excellent, as is typical. I had a roast beef special, which had just the right combination of ingredients. The dishes here never fail to "hit the spot," and I've never been left wanting more. Family favorites are the reuben, other specials (most... More

We found this gem completely by accident... this deli will make you feel like you are in downtown New York City. Located in the trendy North Shore area of Chattanooga, this small deli is located in the downstairs area of a building located on River St., most easily accessed from the river side of the building. Homemade salads and soups,... More

We were greeted as if we were their only customer (we were not, the place was fairly full). The atmosphere was hometown deli. Nothing to wow about but clean and welcoming. The gentleman taking our order made some recommendations when I couldn't decide on the side salad choices. I was not disappointed! Our group of three adults and a seven... More

This place was delicious; the best place we ate during our stay in Chattanooga. My husband and I got the two specials and split them. The turkey with candied bacon was really good, and the prosciutto and mozzarella with fig jam on a ciabatta bun was the best sandwich I've ever had. The employees we interacted with were really friendly.... More
