We asked my native NOLA brother in law Ed where the best muffuletta could be found. He recommended World Deli. We ordered a whole sandwich (about $16) and I would definitely recommend half for a normal full sized portion, unless you're going to split it with a larger group. It was an awesome muffuletta and I'm glad we took Ed's... More

Value - if you are in search for a place where your $$'s can provide a great lunch, this is the place to go. Catfish Poboy is the best we had in New Orleans and we stopped at several places to sample and compare. My husband had a beef sandwich that was incredibly huge. Side dishes were also very tasty....

Here you can get as good a sandwich as you will find in the area. The roast beef is great and huge. The fried oyster poboy was delicious. All sandwiches were great.

I always enjoy eating at World Deli. The food is very good and the deli is small, but comfortable. Nice people too! If there's one drawback, it would have to be the limited parking spaces available.

As I said it's hard to believe someone can make such a " delicious loaded with meat run down your elbow Roast Beef poboy" on the best french bread I have ever had. I have also had their Oyster poboy's which are equally delicious. They have daily lunches and salads which are also hard to beat. It's a small very... More

we have passed by the World Deli many times, and have heard good things about it, but had never tried it so decided to try it out for lunch. Overall, the place is a family-friendly atmosphere which serves good poboys and sandwiches, with an italian fare. In terms of the food, both the bread and the ingredients were good quality.... More

I've had some good food here and some not so. Now I always stick with the roast beef poboy. The parking is a challenge. Very few spaces and once your in you have to back out onto Clearview parkway. I find it's always too cold in the dinning room. I find there iced tea to weak. The employees are always... More

Was told by a local about this place. It's been around a loooong time. Spotlessly clean and full of locals having lunch. Had a fantastic tomato panini. Crispy yummy sourdough bread. So flavorful! I can't wait to go back.

World Deli is a tried and true. The sandwiches are top notch and fresh. Their roast beef is sloppy like it oughta be. One of my favorites is the chicken parmigiana po-boy. It is so well done and one sandwich is enough for me for 2 days worth of lunches. The paninis are also delicious. The only reason I don't... More

Everyone always says that Central Grocery in the FQ has the best muffaletta. But World Deli (formerly Casa de Palermo when I was growing up in Metairie) really has the BEST!! It is the first place I go whenever I visit the area. Last time my sisters and I went home, we stopped in and chatted with the owners (still... More
