We love this deli, have the Reuben- you won't regret it! Also, try the black bean side salad, it's delicious. Our kids like it here too, never a disappointment.

By far this is the best place in Waukesha to get a Ruben sandwich! They even have gluten free bread so you can enjoy any of their sandwiches. They don't skimp on sandwich fillings either, I can only ever eat half of one. You can order soup and half sandwiches too. The owner is always right there working beside his... More

OMG! I ordered a Ruben & ended up with a Huge, juicy Ruben! So good & basically ended up with 2 meals because I could only eat 1/2 of the sandwich. Nice staff & quick service! I'd definitely go back!

They tout the best Ruben sandwich around but I'd give it a "B." Not as much flavor in the corned beef as I would like and... More

Have always wanted to try Rochester Deli. A colleague provided navigational support, so glad we lunched here. Devoured my piping hot, melty Monte Cristo. Loved the pasta salad. Chicken dumpling soup so warming on a cold winter day. Friendly order experience. Two empty tables for four when we arrived near noon, so we seated easily and waited for our order... More

Delicious sandwiches. Had the Devonshire Panini. Great taste combo especially with the fresh asparagus. Desserts are large portions that are delicious and affordable.

Absolutely wonderful corned beef and pastrami....excellent salads (I love the California salad and poppyseed dressing!) and yummy desserts. You can't go wrong when you are in the mood for a super sandwich. Almost forgot to say that their soups are wonderful!
