Fodor's Review

San Diego is perfect for picnics and this popular deli just a block from Balboa Park helps turn these outdoor affairs into memorable feasts. Fans, including workers from nearby offices, rave about the ample and affordable hot and cold sandwiches, home-made soups, chili, and pizza by the slice or pie. Some favorites include the California sandwich with turkey, avocado, bacon, and sprouts; a chopped chicken salad with chipotle ranch dressing; and the albondigas soup. Don't be put off by the retro sign out front; inside there’s a surprisingly modern and well-stocked grocery, wine shop, and liquor store, too.
