While San Francisco is a food destination, there is a dearth of Jewish Delis serving the N Y favorites : Pastrami, Corned Beef, etc. It is therefore no surprise that the DELI BOARD, with its amazing sandwich menu has become a very popular south-of-Market St. deli mecca. The $ 13. sandwiches are worth the price and scream authentic New Yoooork ! Despite the owner's allegiance to Cleveland. Each sandwich is delivered with free condiments : huge pickles, slaw, onions, etc.

The atmosphere is hi-energy, with a dose of Motown music, for a vintage background. Service is fast, but very casual : lunch is delivered in deli-paper, no plates. To miss the daily lines, avoid visiting between 11:45 and 13:00 ; they close daily at 16:00. Free, one hour parking can easily be found within 50 yards of this delicious deli. Enjoy !

The sandwiches were huge and delicious. The sandwiches on the menu also come with a large pickle on the side. It was more food than I could finish, but was exactly what we were looking for to replenish ourselves mid day.

- I'm not a huge fan of sandwiches, but this place has the Best.Pastrami+Briske t+Corned Beef. EVER; juicy, fresh, soft, tasty. I ordered it on a dutch crunch, but i think they gave me the wrong bread. Thankfully, the bread was great; soft on the inside, slightly crusty on the outside and completely complemented the juicy, yummy meats. The sandwich i ordered was the Basic #2.

- The Caprese Salad was awesome; the mozzarella was soft and pillowy and the pesto was a great combo. I had 3 thick slices of the cheese!

- But here's why i moved it up from a 4* to 5*. We had the sandwiches delivered to our office today and they were supposed to arrive at Noon. Instead, they arrive around 12.35p. The person who ordered our lunch (business associate) was completely mortified, but did not make a big stink.
However, the Deli Board apologized and comped our entire meal without even waiting for us to complain. The meal was at least $80.

So. We decided that next week, we'll have them deliver again; hopefully, lunch will arrive somewhat on-time...but at least we know that the sandwiches will be AMAZING.

Thanks for converting me to a sandwich-liker (not quite lover yet)! And thank you for taking care of your customers. The Basic #2 ROCKs and i can't wait to try the Boca next week!

Deli board (http://www.deliboardsf.com/) at 1080 Howard Street makes the best sandwiches ever and at a reasonable price. Adam has specials everyday. You can get some great soups there also. This is not an eat in restaurant, instead you just go to the door and one of the workers comes out to take your order and your name. After a few minutes they come out with this huge sandwich served with a big dill pickle on the side. After your first time they will remember your name. Try it, I'm sure you will like it.
