“Nice Deli”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

Great Deli. Been there many times
Great food
Not cheap though. A bit on the high side. Lots of wine to choose from as well

“Sandwiches to die for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

This is a great deli! The sandwiches are delicious. The only one I have ever had is the caprese with the made in house mozzarella, it's crack. We recently had house guests from the bay area, picked up sandwiches here and went to Sausalito Canyon winery. All (veggies and meatheads) agreed the sandwiches were delicious. Only thing is that they are a tad on the spendy side.

“No longer our favorite deli!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014 via mobile

We have been coming here for the last 11 years when in the pismo beach area. We loved picking up our sandwiches and taking them to cambria for a picnic. We were up there this week picked up our sandwiches and when we got there they were not what we ordered, they were tasteless, the deli meat didn't taste gourmet like it used to, it tasted like something out of a package. They were also very sloppily made. Staff was not friendly, and seemed like they didn't know what they were doing. We found a great little deli in cambria that we will now be going to. It was fantastic. We are sad this place has changed and gone down hill.

“Great sandwiches for 30+ years”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

I have been stopping by this deli for over 30 years. I'm not sure that it has always been under the same owners or name, but I started stopping here for sandwiches on every trip from the SF Bay Area to LA about 32 years ago (when I was in college). Somehow this place has consistently offered a GREAT sandwich along with great service. They are a bit more gourmet than I remember, but that just means you can now get other great food at the deli. But, for $7 their custom sandwiches can't be beat. They are huge, fresh, made to order and come with a lot of options for no additional charge. I always look forward to stopping here and am impressed and pleased that this place has been here for so long.

“Hidden Gem on the Central Coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

Every time my wife and I visit the Central Coast, Depalo and Sons is a must stop. The deli is awesome, everything is made in house. Great bakery and if you like wine they have a huge selection. Their custom sandwiches are unique and very good. A
