“Very good deli”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Got sandwiches there two times. Both were excellent. They use Deitz and Watson deli meats. All sandwiches had liberal portions of meat. Not an extensive menu but what they have they do very well. Best place for a sandwich in Santee

“Miss the old owners”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Since the new owners took over, the desserts arent as good or the sandwiches. It just shouldnt cost 20 bucks for two sandwiches and drinks.

“Excellent sandwiches, good price”
Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

It is what it is--a simple deli with excellent meat. The Cole slaw is fresh and not too sweet, which is how I like it. The potato salad not so good.

“SKIP IT !”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

First...IGNORE the previous positive reviews. This deli is like a deli in Greece on austerity. My wife had the Greek salad that was the size of a side salad, and almost $8. A few Greek olives, few cucumbers, tomatoes, dollop of fetta, onion and romaine lettuce. I had the Italiano sandwich, which came on a dry, lifeless white bun. The tomatoes were fresh, though. The potato salad came in a tiny, plastic container and was very simple. We are not big eaters...but, hey...do yourselves a favor...skip this mysteriously rated #1.

Oh yes...the young waitress had two tables to wait on and no one else in the place. She forgot to place our order...it slipped her mind.
