I've been eating at Gary's since I was a child. They have the best burgers, tacos and deli sandwiches. The owners are really nice. It's a great stop after a day at the beach.

Great Pastrami sandwiches. Very small, only a handful of tables, but the food is excellent. My wife love's the Matzo Ball Soup. Small patio in back. Good for to-go meals. We eat there once a month at least.

Food was great for a deli. Lots of options and great value. We did carry out and food was delicious. Banana shake was good too.

Under forty dollars for four people, very fresh and very tasty. Highly recommended. We tried the tuna special, veggie sandwich, gumbo soup and New York sandwich. All excellent.

Gary's deli is a delight. The sandwiches are huge and terrific. They can be shared. All meats are fresh. We have been eating here for years and have never been disappointed. The chicken soup is a must, especially if you are sick. You can eat in or outside or take out.

Gary's has been in Corona deal Mar for 35 plus years...and it just keeps getting better. It has watched children with ice cream cones after school come in with their children and now bring them in for the same treat. Their deli sandwiches can't be beat. Best egg salad in town. Braunschweiger is top drawer and really thick. Pastrami too.... More

Grabbed a quick lunch at Gary's Deli on PCH in Corona Del Mar. Had always passed by but never stopped in for lunch. While Christmas shopping decided to give it a try for a quick bite.
