I have eaten here twice and will continue to eat here. The first time I came here I ordered the 12 inch pastrami on a white roll with mustard, pickles, banana peppers and onions. I also got fries and Cole Slaw. The fries were hot and plentiful crinkle cut fries, the slaw tasted like it was from KFC, which is... More

Small Delinlocated in a small shopping center next to UPS store. Has a good variety of sandwiches, salads and soups. You can dine in or take out. Prices are reasonable, service is friendly. Sandwiches are good.

We love eating here. The chili dogs and the turkey Reuben are our favorites. The staff is friendly and the food is hot and good. They give you a boatload of fries and they are pretty salty, which we like, but if you're watching salt, better get them to leave it off. Lots of locals come here for a quick... More

First visit since new ownership, much more limited menu than deli junction, but the sandwich I had was fresh and tasty. Had roast beef with provolone cheese, they have the best fries in town, large crinkle cut fries, hot and fresh.

Maybe Sandwich Shop would be a better name. Not your classic "deli" but really good sandwiches at very good prices.

Usually eat there once a week for lunch. Very good chili dogs and sour dough grilled cheese. We have tried multiple sandwiches. Never had a bad meal there.

We go to Ellijay Deli for great Subs. The Warm Reuben Sandwiches are awesome. My husband likes the Hot Dogs and Meat sandwiches. They bake their own cookies which are also delicious.

I was in town for business and saw the 'Deli Junction' sign and thought, "It's a good day for Pastrami." I ordered the Mountaintown...wow! Awesome flavors. One of the best sandwiches ever. Try it. Also got a dog 'all the way' including chili and slaw. Fantastic. I can't recommend enough. Staff is very attentive. Go here.

I have eaten there several times due to the general lack of food in Ellijay. There food is just ok deli food. The real pit fall is that if you walk in for even a minute you will smell like sliced sandwitch meat. We wont eat there anymore at luch because we feel we need to change before coming back... More
