We stopped here for a quick bite before leaving St. Louis. I had the chicken salad sandwich, it was very good. They had an interesting take on chicken salad, it was made with chicken, almonds, pineapple, coconut, celery, green peppers, and of course mayo.

We found Caruso's Deli while taking a lunch break from the City Museum. We wanted good sandwiches and a place with a more "local" feel, and we got exactly what we were looking for! It's a small storefront, but has an amazing selection of sandwiches,...More

I had the blackened chicken flatbread sandwich (just enough spice with perfect chipotle mayo) and my boy had a basic ham and cheese (smooth and smokey ham on moist homemade bread). What the place lacks for atmosphere (want to buy the mirror off the wall...More

I wanted an Italian style sandwich. This was a great choice although they have any kind of sandwich you can imagine. Also local family owned. Very nice people. So glad we stopped here.
