We tried this the first time today when we went on a day trip with our motorcycle group. We had heard it was good, but it was beyond expectations. There were 55 of us, and the wait staff graciously did their best to serve us. We shared a super Reuben and it was amazing. I have been told that their... More

Milton's does make great chicken soup. In fact, we take out from there whenever we feel blue. Milton's has all the requisite Jewish deli items, corned beef, pastrami, and all sorts of overstuffed sandwiches. It is the best Jewish deli in San Diego. And you can't go wrong if you have a sweet tooth. The dessert case has lots of... More

Being from Chicago's Near North, I believe I have had ample exposure to Jewish Delis of all qualities. I like most ethnic Jewish food so much that my acceptance range is quite wide. However, when some tells me that some deli is just like New York or Chicago, my expectations become focused at the high end. Very few make the... More

Great place to enjoy one of your favorite deli sandwich. Service was great. Had a hot pastrami on rye, of course, with potato salad. Will return next time in the area.

Spent a day at the San Diego County Fair and needed some real food for dinner. Milton's is just on the other side of the freeway. The location was easy to find and the food was very good. My husband had a pastrami and I had a roast beef sandwich. Both were filled with plenty of meat. The service here... More

Excellent deli food- large portions and good help. A must if you like this kind of food and can't get to Sherman's. Crab cakes were very good and cherry strudel was made with sour cherries.

Did a quick lunch here and was underwhelmed. We have visited before for dinner and were not really impressed. Decided to do it again and won't be back. Food was just OK, but very overpriced. Better choices are available.

Great deli, pricing was reasonable for this type of restaurant. Food was good and large portions. Matzoh ball soup was great.
