On the upside, and it is almost all upside, like most are saying, you get great subs, huge, good quality subs/sandwiches, freshly made by a staff who wants to make your order the way you like it and certainly friendly enough. And, the pizza us very good (not great) and definitely worth buying. Other hot deli specials & items were great as well (pretty killer mac & cheese, my son loved it). Prices are absolutely reasonable, especially considering the substantial size of your orders.

So what's the downside? 15 years ago, I used to work in the Tech Park less than a mile away and used to come here for lunch about once/week. The place hasn't changed, like, at all, and that's not really a good thing. Sure, it was great to see that the food quality and value were still very high, however, the place had the same lousy congested & marginally clean seating area, same lousy entrance, & same haphazard parking lot looks like 1970's rust belt gas station without the gas. The place seems to be a goldmine, can they put a little re-investment back into the facilities? Just remember, you're coming here for the food, & maybe to pick up some beer.

We were looking for a filling lunch before a ballgame and our main choices were Taco Bell and Wendy's. We were about to pull into Taco Bell and we decided to give Deli & Brew a try. Their sub's were not only huge! but they weren't too pricy either. They didn't shy on the amount of deli meat they put on and their cuts were fresh, the cheeses very flavorful! I will drive the 30 minutes out just to pick up sub's from now on. Seriously...

Although not the most enticing place from the street, their subs are great! We have made this a regular place to pick up a couple of huge subs either for lunch or dinner. The meat is shaved fresh and the rolls are great. Heads up that the Large subs are LARGE and you need to be a huge eater to finish one. Give it a try, you wont be disappointed (unless you actually like the psychedelic meat used in the chains). An added bonus is the locally made cookies and decent beer selection (plenty of regular beverages too).
