Only ate there twice, but greatly enjoyed food both times. Fabulous deli regular and huge sandwiches. All varieties of deli meats and delicious dinners. 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

Very popular place...usually have a little wait. The food is great for deli food with all the traditional selections. Big portions, quick service, and great food and fair prices. Certainly not fancy but good.

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
