decent food, nice folks – InBok and Sun and family run a very nice basic deli, with friendly service (although it can get a little hectic at lunchtime - better to call ahead). InBok does BBQ day on Wednesday during the summer months, and the grilled burgers are just like you make at home. The chicken salad sandwich is pretty good - they put dill in it, a nice surprise. I don't care for their stir fried veggies - frozen, from a bag, and could definitely improve. However, the trick is ordering the right thing. Breakfast sandwiches are pretty good, as is the BLT.
The Best Turkey Sandwiches – They make the best turkey sandwiches! You pick your choice of breads and cheese. These sandwiches can't be beat! I'm grateful they are close to my office. Very nice people too~
Stick to the sandwiches – A very nice Asian couple runs this no frills deli, and most of the time they handle it by themselves. Which means the service can be hit or miss, depending on how busy they are.
The menu here runs the gamut from pho noodle soup and bento, to spaghetti and meatballs, to soup, sandwiches, and chili smothered baked potatoes.
They have no specialty, and consequently, none of the food here is really special. For those of us working in this neighborhood, it is one of the only places to eat...thus the crowded lunch hour.
If I were to recommend something, I'd say stick with the roast beef or B.L.T. sandwich ($4.50)where the meat is piled high and the bread is usually fresh. Everything else on the menu is just "okay" except the espresso drinks, which are awful.
