The Only REAL Deli in GSO

Located near 3 colleges and is popular with all! Decent parking, except lunch time. When you walk thru the door you're hit with great deli smells, people hustling about taking orders, preparing food, and making it all happen smoothly.

Open Monday - Saturday10am to 10pm, this place was a good find. Great deli menu from sandwiches to plates priced to a high of $8.50.

Also Hot... More

I always get the Montclair being a vegetarian and all, so I highly recommend that. Overall, their bread is so fresh and they serve my favorite soda (Dr. Browns).

This place had it all. Great sandwiches and desserts and top notch service. Our children's meals were split as our server suggested. She was really menu knowledgeable and had a great personality. A definite good Greensboro find.

Does not disappoint is a great sandwich shop and more. First time we went just because we were new in town now we get a craving for them. My favorite is the Italian tried some others but not as great like the spice.

One of the best sandwich shops in town- great lunches and tremendous service. Boars head meats, and homemade sides. Hands down the best NYC deli experience in Greensboro.

Extensive menu of speciality sandwiches but Still able to order my custom sandwich. Came to the table exactly as ordered. Pure enjoyment. My husband enjoyed his pastrami as well. Cookies were good. Wish I had room to try the carrot cake. We will be back our next time through Greensboro.

Love the meatless and black bean burger! They offer unique sandwiches and are one of the few restaurants that serve Dr. Browns soda pop.

Being an ex-New Yorker living in NC its always been difficult to find a decent deli where the experience is close to what is found in NYC. Although this deli doesn't process there own meats (they use Boar's Head) its as close as I have found. I ordered the pastrami on Rye with carrots and blue cheese for my side... More
