My wife and I shared a pastrami Reuben on the way to a football game-- with a side of coleslaw and extra Russian dressing. It was wonderful. We said we were running late and they served us very quickly. Can't wait to go back. They have a large menu with specials every day that look good. Thanksgiving dinner every Thursday.

A huge variety of deli style food, but their deli sandwiches (hot pastrami and corned beef) don't match the best of LA. Excellent salads, reubens and platters. A go to place for dinner and lunch. Everyone can find something to their liking.

I popped in here to see a family friend as a convenient location - glad I did. Service was swift and smart. Menu was almost a little overwhelming with so much on it! Settled for the Eggs Benedict which were beautifully cooked. My friend had a salad, which looked terrific. Well recommended.

Friends took me here and told me I would definitely be full when we were done. They were right. I ordered a sandwich and ended taking half of it home. The food was delicious. The very large menu gives you a ton of options and the staff were great. Go hungry. The only down side to this restaurant is the... More

This restaurant / bakery is reminiscent of Ada's Deli or The Bagel in Chicago. I first learned of Milton's from their wonderful multigrain bread which is available around the US. They have a full service restaurant, too, with a HUGE menu serving everything, well, from soup to nuts. They have great breakfast selections as well as lots of sandwiches and... More

From corned beef to pastrami, turkey, liverwurst, hot dogs, knockwurst, soups, salads, desserts and more. Love the newspaper print menu and everything about this place. Made me feel like I was back East. Definitely would recommend... More

A true deli! Huge sandwiches and just about anything else. I actually had liverwurst which I haven't had in years and the sandwich brought back some great childhood memories. We got there at 11 and the place was packed before we left. Ample beer, wine, and soda selection. Just off I-5 and near the Del Mar Race track in a... More
