The Full Belly Deli closed for good in March 2015 which is too bad since it was Portland's only real Jewish deli with very good traditional Jewish deli food.

This restaurant just reopened on Main Street in Westbrook. Lots of delis claim to have authentic Jewish deli food. This one really does. Excellent, lean corned beef, pastrami and brisket that rivals Katz's Deli in Manhattan's lower east side. Generous sandwiches, tasty slaw and potato...More

This restaurant is now closed. It did have some of the best subs I have had in Portland and I never left hungry. People told me it was overpriced, but fit the amount of food and the quality I'd say it was just right.

Superb deli with old world attention to detail, serving size and taste. The deli sandwiches like pastrami and corned beef are great, large and filling. Same with potato salad, coleslaw and real chicken soup.

We had the Regal Rachel which was turkey, coleslaw, cheese and Russian dressing, grilled. Awesome! The only downside was the pickle, which was too salt not enough vinegar, yuk. Service was fast, place was clean.
