I really enjoy the sandwiches here. The pastrami is pretty fantastic. I do not eat here often, because all of the side dishes are heavily loaded with onions. As are the daily specials and breakfast dishes. Having onion sensitivity/allergy prevents me from going here more often. If you go, check out the Ruben or Rachel with pastrami.

We were visiting our friends who just moved to WI and it was our first time in Madison. First of all, what a cute town! We went to pick up brewing supplies and asked the guys there for a good lunch spot and they suggested Stalzy's. They had a great menu, nice staff and great decor. I had the Rachel... More

This deli offers a variety of sandwiches and wraps along with homemade soups and sides, including two styles of slaw. My smoked brat was cooked perfectly. Order at the counter. Food is delivered when ready.

We just bought a pound of corned beef from this place to take home for sandwiches. It was fatty, greasy and they smoke it. It was more like uncooked bacon. And, to add insult to liquid smoke, it was $16 a pound.

I stated with a cup of mushroom barley soup which was excellent. Then I had a combo deli sandwich which is half pastrami and half corned beef on marble rye bread. I... More

I don't live in Madison however travel there 3 to 4 times a year and ALWAYS go to Stalzy's. Love all of the freshly smoked meats and fresh bread. The owner is extremely friendly. I wish we had a deli like this in my hometown. PS. Bloody Mary's are a must there!

Stale's has delicious sandwiches and potato pancakes. Go there and order some. I could stop my review right there. But I won't! Stalzy's has great meats and sausages; I believe they make them on-site. But I will focus on some non-meat items. A few years ago, my husband and I were vegan-ish, and this was one of our favorite restaurants.... More
