I kept saying I had to try AK Deli every time I drove by. I am so glad I did!! I have had the Chicago Style Dog and the Italian beef sandwich, never disappointed. Great service, you can call in and pick up your food...or order there. No room to sit and eat, but on a nice day, grab a dog or sandwich and go eat at the park. It is a little hidden away, but worth the search. PS from the other room I hear - "the Italian beef with mixed peppers is piled high delicious"More

Based on a friend's recommendation we stopped at AK Deli for lunch on a weekday afternoon. The deli is located on the west side of Wyoming just north of the Comanche intersection. It is located in a strip mall with a computer shop and a...Mexican restaurant. The comparison bar was high as we are originally from the Chicago area and have dined in plenty of delis there, but not here in ABQ. We ordered the original Chicago hot dog with all of the fixings and the beef/provolone cheese sandwich with sweet peppers. The food was excellent, just like Chicago! The beef sandwich was large enough for 2 people to share and only $8 There is no seating so you have to dine out at home or in your vehicle. The only cold drinks are canned sodas and ice teas. Unfortunately, no Italian Ice for desert either; but that would have added only a "+" to our 5 star rating.More

OMG my work colleague brought me here and now I can't stop going back. I honestly forgot I like hot dogs....REAL hot dogs that is. Now listen carefully... this isn't a dine in huge menu restaurant. This is a specific menu with emphasis on quality...hot dogs. When I was there you could get a bag of chips and can of pop. Also, it can be a wait but that is because it is wonderful and very worth the wait. For fun talk about your favorite NFL football team while you're there😊 I will continue to go back many times!More

Went here last night and I thought I had died and went to heaven. The hotdogs are better than what I could get in Chicago. The beef sandwich was huge and better than Portillo's and my wife said the combo was to die for. Definitely...my new take out restaurant!!!!More

Hello, those following me know I’ve been back a few months from my awesome time in Chicago. I had thought I would have to give up the great foods and flavours of Chi-town. Thanks to the help from my local Foodies, I am in heaven...again. AK Deli’s Kameko and Al bring Chicago to New Mexico. Kameko and Al are from Chicago and purchase their meat from there. Their Chicago pride is clearly evident. Arriving early, I only had time for the Chicago Dog. Plump juicy Vienna Beef hot dog 🌭 smothered with sweet and hot peppers, relish, pickle, “The works”..:). This dog won the “Westminster Hot Dog Contest”..for Best in Show..:) It was delicious with every bite. I will be returning soon to eat their Italian Beef sandwich. Those craving a taste of Chicago, look no further. Thanks for reading. AvramMore

It's tough to find good corned beef and pastrami in Albuquerque. I had half a pastrami sandwich and half a corned beef sandwich today. Both were very good. Will definitely come back. New business that just opened in September of '17. Owners are Chicago transplants...who seemed to be very nice. Sadly, take out only.More

Got a flyer in the mail advertising this unique establishment; As I'm originally from the Southside of Chi-town & knew I had to check this place out!! Walked in and asked if anyone here was from Chicago and the lady at the counter said she...was from the 'burbs but her husband was from Chicago, needless-to-say I gave him my old Chicago address...the rest was history! I ordered the Chicago Dog & Jay's potato chips to go; Got home and discovered their 'dog' is the real deal!!!! This "dawg took me back home...!!!!More
