Unlike a sand witch, a sandwich doesn't have the power to turn men into sand and sand into poisoned glass. Let a sandwich cast a devastating spell on hunger pains with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of deli fare at 9th Street Deli.
The skilled meal sculptors at 9th Street Deli have been chiseling splendidly stacked sandwiches since 1974. Cocooned in fresh, locally baked baguettes, signature sandwiches include delicious mouth-stuffers such as The District––topped with a choice of roast beef or turkey, pepper jack, cream cheese, veggies, and a zingy honey-dijon dressing ($6.25 full, $3.55 half)––and The Dylan––a meaty medley of roast beef, ham, bacon, cream cheese, veggies, and mayo, often known by its birth name, The Robert Zimmerman. Or, chow down on an authentic all-beef Chicago-style hot dog, which is classically enveloped in a poppy-seed bun, piled high with onions, tomatoes, sport peppers, and dressed in a piquant mustard and relish ($3.95). Those feeling artistically inspired can create their own sandwich by mixing and matching choices from an extensive selection of fresh breads, meats, vegetables, cheeses, and spreads, before complementing the creation with a bowl of homemade soup ($2.99–$3.99), a crisp garden-fresh salad ($2.99–$6.59), or a haiku about its winning personality.
Open 11 a.m.–6 p.m. daily, stop by 9th Street Deli to sip on a beer or a soda as you enjoy the intricate workings of a delicately composed gastro grinder. As springtime draws closer, 9th Street Deli's courtyard dining patio will present sandwich savorers with the unique opportunity to reintroduce their pastrami to the great outdoors before locking it forever in their stomach safes.
Six Yelpers give the 9th Street Deli a five-star average:
