Surprise, surprise, surprise!

Small deli off on a side road from the main drag, recommended to me by a group I went whitewater rafting with. They were so right. Went for lunch 3 times in four days and loved the BLT and Caesar salad. The owner works her butt off to make great food and give great service with a homemade feel... read more

We had much here today. My husband ordered the Cobb Sandwich and I had the Veggie Sandwich. Both were so fresh and loaded with veggies. I had fruit with mine while my husband had the pasta salad as his side. You could not ask for better fresh tasting sandwiches. The service was great and friendly.

We got there 15 minutes before they closed and ordered the Classic Club, Tuna Melt and 3 Little Piggies, they were huge and very tasty. Neither of us could finish the whole sandwich so we ate half there and took the other half to-go. Service was friendly and very accommodating!!

Lynn and I stopped for lunch at Pantele's in Moab before heading out for a day in Arches National Park. This is an order at the counter type of restaurant. Food is brought to the table. I had Pantele's Chop Chop Salad ($9.50). Lynn had a Corned a Beef Reuben. My salad had a little bit too little chicken. Lynn... More

Pantele's (pronounced pan-tellies) Desert Deli is a casual lunch cafe in downtown Moab that makes superb salads (they make good looking sandwiches, too, but we didn't try them). The prices are in the $8-9 range. A salad is a good choice in most restaurants because we rarely have all the ingredients to make an interesting salad at home. However, at... More

We stopped by to take out lunch. We had the honey mustard chicken salad. Delicious! Service was good. Would love to go back again.

The service was slow, but thank goodness the food was delicious! We loved the chicken Caesar salad especially. The classic club was packed with meat and the bread was soft and tummy.

The food is great. Good salads and very tasty sandwiches. The food produced by a friendly lady the day we visited the restaurant. There were some waiting time - but OK. Our impression of this place was spoiled somewhat by the male servant that took our order. If you as server think unexperienced customers in your restaurant really are annoying... More

We stopped by Pantele's to grab some sandwiches to take to Canyonlands. We ordered an Italian hero amd a turkey sandwich. Both of the sandwiches were very good, and were loaded with meat. The servers were very friendly, and they even asked if we were going to be eating on the road, since we'd need extra napkins if we were.

It takes FOREVER to get your food (which they do tell you up front). We waited for the counter person to take our order, waited for the food, waited.... While the food is good, do not go if you are in a hurry. They need more help in food prep, as one person was doing all the prep while others... More
