Nice little place in downtown. Our group had 4 different sandwiches we all tried and all were very good. Nice to have a tap beer too.

State Street Deli is a delicious local deli with excellent sandwiches and salads. They do offer draft beer, which is a fun treat for lunch. Definitely recommend!

If you love quality ingredients in your sandwich, this is a must stop for you. John and his lovely wife have created an awesome sandwich shop/deli. You must visit and see for yourself.

Sandwiches are made to order with the best fresh ingredients! I love their ham and cheese. Their breads are delicious and they have several choices. Don't forget the desert!

Thanks for your review. The sandwich you discribed is called the Michigan Avenue. It is our number 1 seller.

Enjoyed our visit very much. The holiday sandwich was awesome as were the rest of our sandwiches. Much better than chain sandwich places like Subway. Definitely enjoyed the atmosphere and experience and will be back again when visiting my son and family.

Their sandwiches are so unique and so delicious! I only wish they were open on Sundays and evenings, because I can only make it on the occasional Saturday. Very clean. Nice and friendly staff. The #4 is amazing!!! Fantastic bread!

Hello, Traditionally the roast beef in our "hot roast beef & au jus" is soaked in the au jus. This may be why the sack lunch seems to be getting wet. When you order, you may certainly request the beef be "dry" and we will...More
