Great food, call in your order

This is a nice place for lunch, with terrific fresh salads, sandwiches, etc. but be prepared for a long wait. When the owner took our order, we were told it would be 30 minutes to get our salads. And the place wasn't full, either. Luckily, after several hours of hiking, we didn't mind the wait... read more

Wife found on internet and did not disappoint. Husband and wife team were working hard to please. Real good selection of lunch sandwiches. Cherries were included in the fruit side dish, which was a good unusual. Bout the only knock was they were out of a few menu choices. Maybe they were struggling to keep up. Otherwise impressive for a... More

They opened 1/2 hour late then I had to wait for another 1/2 hour for my sandwich because they didn't have everything prepared to make sandwiches such as the sauce and sides for the sandwich. The food was good but having to wait an hour for a sandwich is too long.

This little gem is just off Main Street & totally worth going to for a meal. Fabulous sandwiches and salads - you pick the ingredients. Food was excellent!

I took on of my employees here for lunch on a hot late May day. We both ordered the Italian meatball sandwich. We were pleasantly surprised that the price included chips and a drink as well. We could barely eat all the food and the homemade root beer was fantastic! All this for under $20 for both of us? In... More

Fresh food, big portions, reasonable prices. Really enjoyed the lunch. Not a lot of space inside, but adds to the charm.

Good food and good service. Can get a little slow when business is booming. The sandwiches are a little over stuffed but hard to complain when you get more than your money's worth. Always has been fresh and tastes great! Not sure about their longevity but hope they are around for a long time.

Loved that he told me it would be worth it to order a different sandwich with the GF bread to get more for my money! Good sandwich, good cream soda and a sub $10 lunch!

Just happened to stumble upon this place and decided to try it out. We were there right at noon and the place was probably half full. I ordered the BBQ chicken salad and was told it would be 20 minutes. 45 minutes later we got our salads and am I glad we didn't walk out. That was the best BBQ... More

We first tried Panteli's Desert Deli last August (2014) and it has now become a routine. We eat here on average once a week. They have the freshest veggies, meats and their soup is phenomenal!
