We were so hungry after the Wharf to Wharf race so we decided to eat here. Although super busy, it was so worth it! I had the giant burger and I ate every last bite!

Great stop for a quick bite to eat. Large lunch menu to chose from. Very busy during the lunch hour with not only vacationing people but locals also.

We go here at least once each trip we take to Aptos/Rio Del Mar. Great sandwiches. This year they were INCREDIBLY slow... But it seemed since it was the beginning of June we had the new summer hires.

This Deli has good sandwiches and hamburgers. Fires are good as well. Good selection of beer. Nice patio area to enjoy your food - across from Rio Del Mar beach.

CALAMARI SANDWICH -- Well, there's my review in two words. The Calamari Sandwich is the best thing on the menu. Meaning it has to out-duel the delicious Bay Shrimp Sandwich, the Reuben, the Tri-Tip, the burritos; wow, I must know the entire menu by heart.

My wife and I join our son, daughter in law and grandson for breakfast from time to time. Breakfast menu is limited but more than enough good food to make you want to return!

Looking for a great place to grab a sandwich at the Rio Del Mar Beach? This is it! If you're going for lunch, get there a little bit early so you don't have to wait too long in line.

The food here is good, but expect to spend $10.00-$13.00 for a sandwich or breakfast burrito. Fries are extra, but are also VERY good! On top of that you'd need a drink, and it adds up if you have a family. We stop here for fries and drinks, but cannot afford to get much else very often. I do have... More
