Hooray for Blues City Deli [St. Louis, MO]

Just like finding a $20 bill in your laundry, my lucky day was that sunny, chilly March Saturday afternoon I stumbled across Blues City Deli. One crack of the front door and the aromas of cured meats drilled like a sniper bullet. The miniscule dining room was full of content customers (of course, they were already eating). The line reached the door and get this, a 4 piece band was setting up in the window. Who does this? So after rubbing my eyes to make sure I wasn't dreaming (damn, what a dream that would have been), I frantically searched the menu for my order. Well, I can say I ordered enough food for 8 people and it was all delish. However, the real jewel is the muffuletta. It is all that and on great bread. As a matter of fact all of their sandwiches are on good chewy bread to hold up against the overload of hearty ingredients. There is a million choices of chips and cool beverages. Didn't try the sides. I've keep going back and never get tired. Bravo and keep it up Blues City Deli.

    Heartily agree. Great place, good value, they don't skimp on the meats. Very pleasant and hardworking staff. Two problems -- hard to find the first time, and very difficult to decide between the many great choices. (At Amighetti's, everyone knows exactly the one sandwich to order.)

      Do you have an address? Sounds like somewhere I'd like to check out the next time we go to St. Louis.
