You know you're in the right place when you arrive for lunch and are surrounded by firefighters and neighborhood residents. Deli sandwiches are made to order with fresh bread, meat, cheeses and almost any addition you like. Order a half sandwich, because you will only...More

One of the oldest and best sandwich shops in the St. Louis area. Get on their email list and get the "word of the day" for a buck off your order. A great thing for a great restuarant.

Lunch on the way into town. Unique in my experience. I thought hot salami would be spicy salami. This is hot, as in heated. The salami is more of what I'd consider a sausage, sliced thickly. Had the HogFather and the Italian Trio. Both were...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.
