We’ll look for an excuse to eat here again any time we come through St. Louis. Very tasty. Slightly expensive for size of sandwich, but uniqueness is worth it. Recommend it. Limited seating so you may need to take out if the weather is cold.

Although the lines may be long during lunch hours, the staff works very hard to make your wait not long at all. Fresh ingredients, friendly staff, something for everyone. A must visit deli when eating lunch on the Hill.

Had to wait outside in the upper 90 degrees heat to place an order. Would do it again. We ordered from the secret menu on their website. The Big George was large enough to be shared as was the Hilltopper. The meats were especially delicious...More

No. This is an Italian deli. They never met bread they didn't like! they do have white and wheat and might have some other varieties. Their wheat is the best.
