Hanging on the wall at Chris’ Deli is a 1982 newspaper clipping with the headline, “Faithful followers are drawn by the offerings at Chris’ Deli.” 36 years later, it’s still true.
Regulars rave about Chris’s Deli, a no-frills restaurant known for their sandwiches on Independence Blvd. It’s less than five miles from Uptown. The old school sandwich shop has a 4.5 out of 5 rating on Yelp and a 4.9 out of 5 rating on Facebook.
One reviewer said that they loved that Chris literally came out to check on the quality of the sub. Incredibly, he did the same thing when I showed up unannounced and ordered way too many sandwiches for a single person.
The sandwiches are the star at Chris’ Deli
If you’re a sandwich lover, you obviously know about Chris’ Deli.
If you haven’t been, I recommends their #1 most popular sub, The Daily Sub — roast beef, ham, turkey, provolone, lettuce, tomato, mayo, onion and oil and vinegar with a side of macaroni salad ($8).
You also can’t go wrong with their chicken salad sandwich ($7.25) or their Reuben ($8.25), both of which come with sides and a pickle.
In terms of sides, you have to go with either the scoop of potato salad or the macaroni salad.

How can you not love that the top of their menu reads “We do not believe in fancy names… we believe in quality.”
