We were looking for a good Italian beef sandwich and Trip Advisor listed J Parrino's as a good place to get one. There were 4 of us for lunch on a Saturday, and after looking at the menu we decided to get 4 different sandwiches. Oh my goodness! They were all DIVINE! The Burnes (beef tenderloin on garlic cheese bread)... More

THE best pastrami in the city, hands down! Get it on toasted sourdough! Everything I've tries has been great, and you can even buy meatballs and stuff to take home and make an easy dinner with. Very delicious. It can get very crowded at peak lunch time.

Only Jay can turn a simple bean and rice soup into a taster's delight, an absolute pleasure. Moderately priced and accommodating small business and or family crowd, this Deli is an absolute must visit for fresh meat and vegetable products. Service is very friendly and Jay is always back in kitchen cooking and assuring quality.

Queen City Deli has silly and sometimes tasteless messages on their sign board out front, but the food inside makes the embarrassment of being seen there worth it. Great deli meats and wonderful desserts make this a fine lunch stop. They also have a small selection of authentic Italian goods inside, such as giardinera.

My husband had been wanting an Italian beef sandwich for quiet some time. We found this place on Internet but decided to try. Was a good choice. He loved his sandwiche and their manicotti was really good. Prices not bad either. Food served quickly,was hot, and really delicious

I went to this restaurant with my sister and cousin and had one of the best Italian beef sandwiches I have found in Springfield. This is now going to be my "go to " place for sandwiches in Springfield.

My favorite restaurant in town! The food is always wonderful and the building is always clean. Think of a little deli on "The Hill" in St. Louis meets Chicago style. The Italian Beef and Burns Sandwich are personal favorites of mine, but trust me, everything on the menu is worth giving a shot to. A+!!!!
