We enjoyed deli-made sandwiches and soup at their outdoor tables. They have a daily special: half sandwich and small soup, perfect portion for us. Deli options were very extensive, including housemade meatballs, meatloaf and salads. The soups were obviously housemade as well. Gazpacho, Chicken Tortilla soup were seasoned perfectly and the Tortilla soup full of veg and Chicken. French dip... More

Billy's reminds you of a local market combined with a great deli. They make several fresh salads and entrees daily, along with the best custom sandwiches you can get. They also offer various desserts along with the staples that a neighborhood market would carry. This place is a throwback to another time and I love it.

This "deli" restaurant was a completely 180 degrees from our usual...NO wait staff..seating outside in the Spanish courtyard, which is shared with one up-scale bar/restaurant. Food is not your usual Subway....I recommend the half sandwich with small bowl of soup or chili...the bowl of chili is a meal itself. Just tell them how you want the sandwich made...they can do...

Understand, Billy's is a butcher shop, offering all the premium brands and meats/fish you could ever want. If I want the killer prime rib for Holiday, or the rare cut of lamb, veal or whatever, you go to Billy's. However, they also make some killer sandwiches for lunch or whenever. They're located in a unique plaza down on Del Mar... More

For incredible deli meat, cheeses, and salads choose Billy's at the top of Del Mar. Besides everything being tasty, fresh, and reasonably priced, this place is good for a casual lunch or ordering ahead for parties and celebrations. Be aware,though, that the seating area is outdoors on plastic tables and chairs, so don't expect fancy ambiance. It is next to... More

Great Deli, not only too many sandwiches to choose from but also many Deli items not to be found elsewhere. This is also a meat market as well with once again too many things to choose from.

Located on Del Mar down a little alley, Billy's is the place to go for a great sandwich, and fresh meets. The sandwiches are nice and big. They use Boar's Head meats, and the bread was wonderfully fresh! Everything is al a carte with our sandwich purchase. $8. for the sandwich, drink, and chips extra.

The store is located right downtown San Clemente on the beautiful and romantic Del Mar street. The location is very convenient for both tourists and local people. Even the store is relatively small, it carries all kinds of fresh meats and sea foods of high quality. In addition, Billy has a good collection of wine and American pies. The products... More

Sandwiches are huge with fresh carved deli meat. When I entertain I always purchase my meats from Billy's.
