The absolute BEST sub in Roanoke. Price is great for the amount of sandwich you get. Not quite that hungry...they have the Torpedo which is half the size. Either way you will not be disappointed. Many other sandwiches also. Plus try their warm German Potato Salad and the Baklava !!

This restaurant truly has the best Sailor Sandwich in the state of Virginia and probably in the world! (New York Delis don't make Sailors !). Their other sandwiches & menu items are also excellent! Great cold case for take home. Over all - one incredible deli !!!

Love this place. Disappointed in 1000 island dressing but everything else wonderful. Top notch friendly and fast service. An older and decaying part of Roanoke but worth it for decadent pastrami!

We used to go here years ago. It was a treat. I ordered knockwurst and sauerkraut. The dog came cut up on top of two cups of sauerkraut. Dry rye on the side. German potato salad was crunchy. My husband's pastrami sandwich was dry too. What happened to this place????

This place is pretty average but the service is a little slow if you eat in. The food is okay, but sometimes overly salty and sometimes the staff seem unhappy with their job. However, its very cheap so I will continue to go.

The Original Submarine, need I say more? My grandparents lived a few streets over and this is one of only 4 places my grandpa would it. I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't my first solid food as a baby. I still love going back, so many great memories and I still get the Original Sub! It has changed through... More

The New Yorker Deli has been serving great food consistently for as long as I remember. As long as you don't mind paying cash you'll always leave well fed and happy. I've eaten here numerous times for over 20 years and have yet to get a bad meal or unacceptable service. Everyone has their opinion, but this is a can't... More
