Stopped in Greensboro on a road trip to DC . I love a good pastrami and this sandwich did not disappoint....very lean and juicy warm meat, just the right amount of mustard. We were told the cookies had just been baked white chocolate with macadamia OMG delish! Would definitely return when in Greensboro again! This is a deli as stated... More

This is a great place for a delicious sandwich, hot dog, or salad. You can choose from a wide variety of sandwiches or design your own. Sandwiches are accompanied with either potato chips or carrot sticks, a nice choice for healthy eating. You can choose from a wide range of beverages in cans, bottles or from the fountain. And, there... More

I don't know how long the deli has been in Greensboro, but I've been eating there for a least 20 years! No, it's not fancy, but the food and service never disappoint! There's a wide selection of sandwiches, salads and sides ~ served simply in a small yet comfy setting. I LOVE supporting local businesses and this is one of... More

I always enjoy eating here. They use Boar's Head meats and Cheeses in all their sandwiches, which is the standard up north. From the Reuban to the Italian sub, high quality meats and good preparation make for the best deli style sandwiches you can find in the area. Not to mention fresh baked cookies and beer.

Good lunch, good service, great sandwiches and good. I don't recommend the vegan German potato salad but everything else is outstanding. Meats are piled high and good is fresh. Parking can be a bit tough at times but worth the visit.

Hectic and busy environment at lunchtime, based on generous portions across their range of sandwiches and salads. Only drawback is parking, which is limited - get in early is my advice. The Reuben is one of the best in NC

Very good. Family got subs to go due to the lack of available seating on a Friday night. Generous portions of meat and cheeses on my Sky Dog sub. Daughters Italian sub was spicy and delicious also. Glad I got some extra mayo to go as we definitely used them! Potato salad was mediocre. Staff was super friendly and helpful!

We stopped in for lunch after a morning of shopping, and immediately liked the vibe of this place... very "New York deli". The decor is casual, and we found a comfortable corner table in the back. I got an Arlington (smoked turkey and Havarti cheese, with LT and mayo on an Onion roll - served hot) and my wife got... More

As far as a college student budget is concerned this place was a little expensive. That being said, it is incredibly delicious and all the sandwich choices are good! Would definitely give it a try, their Reuben sandwiches are really great.
