“Truth in Advertising”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

This is another of those TripAdvisor finds that paid off as expected. The sandwiches are as described -- huge and delicious.

At first when we walked through the door I was thinking $9 for a deli sandwich seemed a little steep, but when they arrived it was easily the size of two normal deli sandwiches. So I think on a per ounce basis this is a very good deal.

I went with the Cuban on the Jalapeno Cheese bread and it was one of the best I have had. My wife went with the Dirka Dirka and it really was a taste sensation. I never really thought about combining coleslaw and jalapenos, despite liking both, but it works extremely well. A nice, unexpected bite to each mouthful.

We didn't read the board up on the wall until after ordering and discovered they have smaller sandwiches, I'm assuming half, called, I believe, less full belly. We would have went with this for our son. But he did polish off most of his turkey wrap, which he gave a strong thumbs up to.

Since all their sandwiches are wrapped to go, it makes for a perfect stop to pick up a great lunch for a picnic over at Donner Lake. It's well worth looking for. Just keep an eye out for the Sherwin-William's Paint Store.

“We loved this Deli”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

We loved this Deli. Best Deli Sandwich ever. We read the reviews on Trip Adviser and decided to go and get a sandwich. We saw how huge the sandwiches were, so we decided to share. It is a good thing we did. Huge servings. We had the Pastrami on the Jalapeno cheese bread. We ate for under 10 dollars for the two of us. Very reasonable price. They warmed it up and the bread was soft and delicious. We took it down the street and sat by the lake and ate our sandwich. I would go back anytime we are in the area. It is a little hard to find. You will probably need GPS. it would not be a place you would just see, but worth the hunt. :) Enjoy!!

“You Want It - They Have It!”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

One of the best restaurants for on the go or just hanging out. Everything meat or meatless and they take it up a notch with taste. Truly a Truckee hotspot! Down to earth place for meeting someone special, conducting business, or stopping with family for a quick bite.

“Great Food”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

Do not depend on your GPS to find it. We ended up on a dirt road. They are located next to Sherwin Williams paint store. Try that! Now for the food. WOW! We found this place on yelp and trip advisor. We started with the chicken and black bean soup. So flavorful and good. I would love the recipe. Then we split a roast beef on the jalapeno cheddar bread. This is big enough for 2 meals. We had 1/2 at the restaurant and then took the other 1/2 and drove 15 - 20 min. to Lake Tahoe and had a picnic at the lake with the rest. We loved it so much we went back 3 days later and got the Dirka Dirka which is corned beef, cheese, cole slaw on the jalapeno cheese bread. It is so flavorful and watch the jalapeno's in the bread, sometimes it's a bit spicy but oh so good. YUM, it was great. Again, we had 1/2 at the restaurant and took the other half to the Sacramento airport for dinner before we flew home. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back when in town
