If you like hot salami or roast beef sandwiches this is the place to go for lunch in St. Louis. Since the facilities are small, they rapidly fill with customers at lunch time. The servers can handle the crowds quite efficiently and easily get you on your way. There are a half dozen tables inside and two more outside where you can eat your lunch or take it with you. The popularity is genuinely justified as the food tastes great no matter what you order. A place well worth returning to!

We had a group of 3, two split a whole Hogfather sandwich, and one attempted to eat a whole Spicy Daggett sandwich (check menu on website for ingredient list and note the "secret" menu while you're there) but could only finish half because of the portion size. We opted for these sandwiches due to the featured hot salame (note: this is not spicy hot) being present on both of them. The garlic cheese bread (the kind all in our group had) is very fresh. We noticed they have both indoor seating (3 tables) and outdoor seating (~8 tables). We arrived during what sounds like a typical lunch hour from reviews on here on a Friday with a line out the door. We scanned our surroundings in case we weren't able to get a table and found that there are park benches across the street that one could sit and eat on. Like the rest of The Hill neighborhood, there is on street parking; we parked a block away and walked to the deli.

Nice size moist meatball sandwich. I visited during a wine festival so the lube was out the door, yet they were quick and friendly. I hear they just got a James Beard award, which adds to the line and I can see why.

Nice sandwich, decent price, great staff.

Made a trip from Ohio to St. Louis with friends to eat- yes "eat" our main goal was to visit "the hill" for our culinary adventure and we were in our glory - my favorite the hot salami the best ever - melted in your mouth - the staff and fellow customers,era were the best - one big Italian family - bravo to all.

This place is awesome! Get the hot salami and pay the extra dollar for the garlic bread. I will crave these sandwiches when I leave Saint Louis!
