There are quite a few choice in Alamo for lunch but Brass Bear is one of the originals. Probably has been here for 3 decades. They make fresh sandwiches to order. Can also get chips, cookies and drinks. Food is always fresh and always good.

Incredible sandwiches, longstanding business that is great at what they do. Fantastic breads and meats and the sandwiches are made to order. Service is excellent and the shop has a great vibe to it. Lines tend to be long and can take a little while, but if you have the time and money for it, can't beat their sandwiches.

Their sandwiches are the best. The quality is consistent. The staff is welcoming. When my family visits from out-of-town, they buy Brass Bear sandwiches shortly after arriving, and they buy sandwiches the day before they leave. I would give the Brass Bear ten stars if possible.

It's a deli. But, the food is very good and the owners and their staff are fabulous. Trip Advisors wants more words, but what else is there but good food and fine service.

I wish I lived closer to this place. I'd eat lunch here every week if it were in my neighborhood. My spouse and I were travelling via car and wanted to pick up sandwiches for a picnic. We did an internet search and found this place. It turned out to be perfect for us. We ordered two sandwiches, one turkey,... More

This hidden deli in the Alamo Plaza has great lunchtime sandwiches, and the owner is always friendly and knowledgeable. Try their Saags liverwurst sandwich, to die for!
