“Excellent Sandwich & Salad Choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011

This is not a NYC style deli - they don't cure their own meats, for example & and the service isn't nearly as cranky - but still they offer a nice array of meats, cheeses, home made salads, and sandwiches.

Like their counterpart off Battleground (Lox, Stock, and Bagel - the menus are virtually identical),they use Boars Head products, and they are all good. Their egg salad and tuna salad are excellent, their chicken salad is not my favorite.

As I said, the sandwiches are very good. The kraut dog is especially good. Speciality sandwiches like The Italian Sailor, The Sailor, the Reuben, the Italian Sub, and the Harrison and the Knickerbocker are all excellent. They have nice bread choices. Good solid deli.

The parking lot is small, and it can be a mess during peak hours, especially when UNCG is in full term
