Excellent Italian deli along with a variety of prepared foods and ingredients. The main attraction is in the back of the store where the crowd gathers at lunchtime. Plenty of help is behind the counter although if you are meek you may wait longer than locals who know how to place their orders when it gets busy. The sandwiches are... More

This Deli is the bomb. Both gourmet and basic choices in snacks, drinks, etc. The bread... oh the bread. Huge soft Italian loafs leave plenty of room for layer upon layer of imported Italian meats and cheeses.

Bob's Italian Foods has been a local favorite for decades and with good reason. The Italian subs on braided rolls are outstanding, and the rest of the prepared foods are fresh and delicious. Prices are great, too.

I go to Bob's mostly for the cold cuts. This is where I've found the best Prosciutto di Parma around. Most of the fat is trimmed and it is sliced super-thin, the way it is done in Italy. Really, you won't regret it, it is top quality. I also get regularly the Rosmary ham (prosciutto cotto al rosmarino); very delicious... More

The quality of the food sold here is top notch and the subs and other dishes are fantastic. I grew up in this area and have been going to Bob's for well over 50 years to initially buy cold cuts and other items for my mother and then for my own family because it's the best! This isn't a sit-down... More

Small and Jumbo both come on a seeded bradied roll stuffed with all the fixings and you have yourself one of the best Italian subs you can have. Fresh cold cuts and fresh bread. It cant be beat. This is a goto when any one visits us from out of state.
