I have followed Maria, AKA Mama, from restaurant to restaurant in San Diego. Her Sicilian Italian recipes are fabulous! I have used this restaurant many times to cater large events. My favorite dishes include Tiramisu, lasagna and their sandwiches. Highly recommend! The only downside is since Mama's brother Sammy (who is delightful) started managing the restaurant the prices went up... More

Small, no-frills deli. Excellent Italian food. Great meats and pastas but I love the Italian sandwich. They cater also. Been to many parties at a friend's place and BMH is always there!

I visit this store at least once a month. I get several types of meats, cheeses and olives to go. Always excellent in every way. Food quality, service and prices. A real gem. Don't forget the 12 inch rolls. They cook the bread on site.

I've been coming to BMH for years and I LOVE this place! Love Juice = THE BOMB. I usually just get a turkey sandwich and a soup when I go. They always have different types of DELICIOUS soups! The Betsy and Meatball sandwich is also great! If you haven't been to BMH yet, GO... you won't be disappointed. Just note... More

Oh my gosh, the sandwiches, soups and pasta's are the best ever. Everyone is so friendly and nice each time I go there. Mama's Love Juice is sooooooo tasty. I have taken it home and marinated chicken with it. Here's to BMH.

Enjoy the sandwiches many times when going to San Diego. It is like a bit of Italy. The bread, meats and cheese all best quality! Italian dressing the best.

Outstanding food, friendly service. You order at the counter and the nice lady brings the food to your table, OR, there are lots of take-out orders.

Absolutely delicious! A friend run operation with a family feel. The sandwiches are incredible and all of the ingredients are the best. Everything is homemade, including their bread, and you will undoubtedly taste the difference. The prices are very reasonable and the portions are generous. As a San Diego native I HIGHLY recommend this as a lunch spot. Not to... More
