“Good deli, easy access from NMSU”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2012

This deli is across University Ave. from NMSU. It has sandwiches A through Z and more, plus sells all sorts of deli meats. You walk up to the counter, order, take a seat, and they bring the order when it's ready. The subs are 5", 7", 9", and up. You can get the sandwiches alone or "make it a meal" for an additional cost. They have daily 7" specials which are cheaper (about $5.95), usually ham and Swiss cheese. You tell them what you want on it: lettuce, tomato, pickle, mustard, mayonnaise, etc. I only wish they had whole wheat bread for their subs -- they only offer white. You bus your own trash to waste bins (just like at a fast food place), being sure not to throw out the plastic baskets, which are reused. They usually have plenty of seating, with some outside, but when it's really busy (like at noon on weekdays) you might find the seating a bit scarce. This is a great place.

“Bugs In Food!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2009

DO NOT EAT AT THIS RESTAURANT!!!! First of all, I found a bug in my sandwich. I returned to the restaurant to get my money back. Later, when I had finally calmed down, I called the restaurant to make sure that the manager or owner knew about the situation. The manager had the nerve of accusing me of lying - saying that it was a ladybug, and that there are no ladybugs in the area. He claimed that I had put it in my own sandwich. At that point, I was furious, and the manager put the owner (Vinny) on the phone. Vinny YELLED at me that I had no right to tell anyone about this, and that I was no longer welcome in his restaurant. I laughed and explained that I will be letting EVERYONE know about their food and their customer service. They are rude, DISGUSTING, and unprofessional.

“Best "authentic" deli subs in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2008

This is the best deli in town. It has done everything right - great bread, freshly sliced meats (Boarhead brand a must!), and fresh toppings all wrapped up in real deli paper (another must!). We love to get a bunch on Sunday when we have people over to watch the game, and they are always a hit! Wonderful homemade potato and macaroni salad as well. It's a little taste of Jersey here in Las Cruces... MMmmmm
