Love this place

Good lunch, good service, great sandwiches and good. I don't recommend the vegan German potato salad but everything else is outstanding. Meats are piled high and good is fresh. Parking can be a bit tough at times but worth the visit.

Hectic and busy environment at lunchtime, based on generous portions across their range of sandwiches and salads. Only drawback is parking, which is limited - get in early is my advice. The Reuben is one of the best in NC

Very good. Family got subs to go due to the lack of available seating on a Friday night. Generous portions of meat and cheeses on my Sky Dog sub. Daughters Italian sub was spicy and delicious also. Glad I got some extra mayo to go as we definitely used them! Potato salad was mediocre. Staff was super friendly and helpful!

We stopped in for lunch after a morning of shopping, and immediately liked the vibe of this place... very "New York deli". The decor is casual, and we found a comfortable corner table in the back. I got an Arlington (smoked turkey and Havarti cheese, with LT and mayo on an Onion roll - served hot) and my wife got... More

As far as a college student budget is concerned this place was a little expensive. That being said, it is incredibly delicious and all the sandwich choices are good! Would definitely give it a try, their Reuben sandwiches are really great.

I love this deli, I wish it was open on Sundays too! I usually get the Belmar which is a hoagie filled with grilled prosciutto, cheese, and Dijon mustard, always amazing. The pasta salad is really great here as well, highly recommend this deli to everyone.

First Carolina Deli is a great (and popular) spot to grab a good quality sandwich and side. Service is always great and so is the food. Parking lot gets full quickly - a sign of how good it is. When I crave a sandwich this is always a top choice. A staple to the Greensboro area - highly recommend!

We were seated right away & was waited on by a "Jersey Girl" who knew what to recommend for us first timers. The sandwiches were outstanding & fulfilling. Fruit was fresh & the red skin potato salad was great. Highly recommend & we will return on our next trip.
