In my opinion this is the best restaurant in Akron. I usually always get the Double which is pastrami and corned beef. It's delicious!!!

An Akron icon. Good old fashion deli. Great Rueben. Bottomless chips. Had a gyro this time and was a great surprise. Ate every bite. Cucumber sauce do fresh. Friend had antipasto salad. Gotta try the blue cheese dressing. Packed with chunks of cheese. Big beer selection. Two thumbs up!!

My husband and I had a taste for deli but couldn't make our way to Cleveland (or New York). We decided to try Primo's and I'm glad we did! It's not fancy, but it's good. We were allowed to sit anywhere we wanted (there is seating on both sides of the deli counter). We were greeted at our table with... More

The food was regular bar food- sandwiches, wings, chips, soups and desserts. It was good not great. The atmosphere is eclectic, kind of like your grandmas dining room in 1970. The service was slow and the servers were inattentive and texting on their phones. The bathrooms are small and old. There are only 1 for men and 1 for women... More

All the food was great, but we were surprised at the bill, almost $30. The chili was $5, both sandwiches were... More

Too expensive....chilli was not as good as wendys and more than double in price! Not quite sure what the big fuss over the place is about...their famous utaluan sub isnt worth the $ either

The reubens here are very good our favorites. Lots of beer choices from all over the world. But one of the best items on the menu is the homemade Carrot Cake. It is one of the best and a meal unto itself because the portion is very generous.

I've been frequenting Primo's Deli for more than 25 years right after Paula learned how to take her first order. My first sandwich was the Hot Italian Sub...and 25 years later it is still the best sandwich in Akron..! With that said I have tried many of the other sandwiches on the menu with equal enjoyment. But why mess with... More

Have eaten there numerous times. Awesome corned beef, potato salad and the best grilled cheese sandwich around! Prices about average for a deli but food is very good.
