I am staying in Lexington for several days on business. After checking in the hotel, I wanted to grab a sandwich and sit outside to enjoy the incredible fall foliage.

This is an awesome small deli located right on the main street in Lexington. Nothing fancy, just great service and delicious sandwiches. Prices are great and the sandwiches are huge! We had sandwiches made and ate across the street at the small park area.

Places around here try to get all weird and fancy. My husband and I love this place, although the parking can be a pain in the butt - it's on the main road, so you will never find a spot "out front". But, it is what they say - a DELI - great big sandwiches with decent pricing. Just love... More

We stopped here for a quick lunch and the menu was very expansive. We ordered the club sandwich and is was delicious. The prices are very reasonable and the staff is both friendly and helpful.

Sandwiches are very large. My husband and I shared a turkey club with bacon and it was filling and delicious...this coming from someone who is not a big fan of deli sandwiches.

Not worth the stop. Sandwiches are decent, other menu items are cheap. Quick service but not personable. I was disappointed, expecting a place rated so highly to be better.
