I believe this place was once a "Blimpie" sub shop but is now independently owned and operated. It is wonderful! A bit more expensive than Subway or Blimpie, but worth it because of the amazing QUALITY ingredients. BREAD to die for, baked in the store....More

The First Street Deli offer some tasty sub options that will appeal to any restaurant visitor. The quality of the subs are great, the prices are more than Subway because of the quality! Great place!
