Best deli in town

I've been eating sandwiches from First Carolina for about 15 years, and their quality has remained phenomenal. Everything is top-notch and fresh.

This place is a very established restaurant in the area, located just a short walk from UNCG. Place is hopping at lunch, and I've had trouble finding parking as late as 1:30pm on some days. The lot is a little smaller than the capacity, but the turnaround is fast, so you can usually find a spot if you're persistent. Once... More

This is as classic deli as you can get in Greensboro. The Rachel sandwich is a must try! The waitstaff is great and friendly. It's a great fix if you are missing the delis of the northeast

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. The menu is loaded with the food you'd expect, and you won't be disappointed! It can be a bit loud, but... More

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.

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.
