For more than 30 years, the chefs of De Vinci’s Elk Grove have been hard at work perfecting the traditional Italian recipes that stock their deli counter. They begin every morning with their hands floury, crafting doughs that will form the base of housemade foccacia breads, cheese-filled ravioli, and custom sandwiches. Joined occasionally by a fluffy ravioli mascot in a toque, staff combine dishes into prearranged packages ready for the family dinner table or parcel out single dishes by the pint, quart, gallon, or 10-gallon hat.
Extreme Pita's menu is populated with nutritional and nourishing palate-pleasers, all packing a punch of personalized perfection that won't promote paunches or potbellies.

Globally minded gastronomists can tongue-travel with international eats such as the Fiesta Mexicana ($5.49 for 6-inch; $6.99 for 9-inch) or the Thai beef ($5.49 for 6-inch, $6.99 for 9-inch).
The seasoned slingers of succulence at Johnathan's Fresh Fish & Meats, who first sharpened their cleavers more than 26 years ago, barbecue bold, smoky flavors into fresh meats to create mouthwatering dinner combos. The combo plate saddles up chicken, pork ribs, or tri-tip beef alongside cowboy beans and a choice of macaroni salad, potato salad, or coleslaw for a gastronomic hootenanny more flavorsome than a gummy-bear rodeo. Barbecue buffs can inhale the scent of grilled meat while dining in at either of the locations from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily, or carryout their plates to enjoy at home with their significant other, roommate, or that handsome doppelganger lurking in the mirror.
Although best known for their oversized, made-to-order sandwiches, Togo's daily menu showcases a smorgasbord of salads, soups, and wraps. Favorite Togo's go-tos include the chipotle-roast beef sandwich, with hot roast beef, provolone cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and barbecue chipotle mayo ($6.29), and the pastrami reuben, slices of hot pastrami buried under swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and thousand island ($5.79). Communal carnivores seek out Togo's catering menu to fuel baby showers, bat mitzvahs, or impromptu boxcar rallies with a variety of boxed lunches and customized sandwich trays. Choose from palate-pleasing platters such as a regular tray layered with 16 half subs ($45), a southwestern seven-layer dip ($40), or one 8-foot sandwich (priced to order) sized to feed a small party or one party-crashing grizzly bear.
