We stopped over to have a quick bite and use the restroom. Hands down the best spaghetti and meatballs I’ve ever had. It was so good, I ordered a second portion. I wolfed it down, so I didn’t manage to take a pic 😬

We made it a point to stop at Big Sur Deli on our way to the McWay falls. Their warm BBQ sandwich was amazing. It looked just like roast beef mixed with BBQ sauce stuffed into a hollowed out French roll, but it was delicious!...More

We stopped here for quick, cheap lunch during a day trip through Big Sur. The value was excellent, including the sandwiches a higher quality than we were expecting.

We were lucky to find the this place as we had planned to pick up sandwiches before heading into the park. We didn’t know there would be very limited options. But the Big Sur deli had awesome sandwiche options that were fresh and tasty!

Huge, thick slices of bread make for very large sandwiches. The bread was fresh but the turkey had no taste. The deli is one of the options you have to grab some food if you are in the area.

A poor selection of food if you don't want a burrito, especially if you are looking for something without cheese, but plenty of booze for sale. Quite expensive for the foodMore

We stopped here for a quick lunch. The deli offers a great variety of sandwiches and Mexican type food. I enjoyed the beef enchilada. There is a patio behind the deli were you can sit and eat.
