CLOSED AS OF DEC 4th - Used to be an awesome spot for lunch

We stopped here for lunch and got a gyro and a chicken sandwich. Both were great- juicy with just a right amount of seasoning. The portions were generous also and prices were reasonable. It is also centrally located right on Center street next to all the downtown shops and restaurants. This place... read more

We ate here for lunch. The service was very slow even though the Dell wasn't that busy. We had pulled pork with barbecue sauce which was delicious, although the grapes were in short supply and I had to ask for them, they weren't provided as a matter of course! The other dish that we chose was barbecue chicken which was... More

My favorite lunch spot in Moab! Bella and Eric are always so friendly and they run a great deli. All the food is fresh and they take great pride in the food they make. My favorite is the pulled pork sandwich, but everything they serve is wonderful.

We had a group of about 50. We ordered by phone for two days, and the orders were received on time and all exactly as ordered. The ingredients were fresh and ample. I had the Cobb salad...lots of blue cheese, avocados and would have served three. Very reasonably priced! Highly recommend!

I had the Cobb salad, excellent, with balsamic vinegar. We were a big group, and Bella took excellent care of us. Big portions, excellent food. Those who had the sandwiches were able to save half of it for later. Definitely a place to visit when you are in Moab! Thank you, Bella!

A no-frills sandwich spot that delivers on taste and value despite the place looking a little less than inviting. But that becomes part of its charm once you get stuck into their sandwiches. I had the grilled turkey and it was delicious. Well with a visit to a grab a takeout just before hitting the road on the way out... More

Sandwiches have good ingredients and are well prepared. Good value for the money. We had the Reuben and the Gyros and loved both.

We had lunch here twice during our weeklong stay in Moab. Took carry out to the park one day and ate in the deli another. Salads are made and tossed fresh while you wait - very good. Great sandwiches too.

The food was great. The sandwiches and salads very tasty and served fresh. The choices covered a broad range and we promised to return the next time we drive through Moab. Sadly, the service is lacking. The two serving us were, in a word, surly. The didn't want to be there, nor did they want us there. There was not... More

Delicious sandwich! Well worth the 25 minute wait. I had turkey plus the homemade potato salad and husband had BLT with bag of chips. Delicious - best sandwich we had had in our 3 week road trip! Easy to find with the Moab Information Centre on corner, north from there. Terrific food.
