If you want a hearty American breakfast, lunch, or dinner in a casual sit down restaurant, this is a fine place to go. The selections are traditional beef, chicken, pork and fish. The helpings are generous. I find the main seasoning is salt. The people serving it are salt of the earth. If you are good with that, this is... More

if you're looking for the working mans diner... this is it. its old school, grab a tray place your order, the cooks are right there and the portion sizes are huge. there is a restaurant side if that's what you want but we enjoy the "step up and order side' always a great menu.

Rich foods, small town diner feeling when you walk in. Grab a lunch tray, order at the counter, the guys cook the food for you and pay! Seat yourself, and after a waitress clears your dishes! Amazing concept and great food!

well, not really hidden, because it's right there on Merrimack Street, but it doesn't look like much from the outside. And yet, i find myself goig back again and again for their comfort food and sense of community- and when friends come in from out of town, they always want to go there for a meal. Their breakfasts are to... More

A-1 has great food in an old school deli counter setting, the food is great, the guests are great, and all at a fair price. My grandmother, 17 years years gone, was a huge fan of the roast pork dinner. I remember her by going in and getting that same dinner today!

The A-1 Deli is really three places in one. First, there is the Deli, where you can come for a quick meal (serving breakfast, lunch or dinner). Second, there is the Cafe, where you can come for a more leisurely, complete meal with table service. Third, there is the function room, where you can host an event of up to 65 people for an exceptional, upscale dining experience.
