Delectable Delis

Take a break from everyday burgers and treat your taste buds to fresh-baked breads and deli delights.

Visit Reuben royalty, the prince of pastrami, the sultan of spice: the great American deli. Savor the flavors of smoked cheeses, spicy spreads, hot peppers and cold roast beef. Indulge in hot soup and made-to-your-liking sandwiches stacked high with veggies, ham, meatballs or salami.

Stop by Jacob Myers Restaurant on the River in historic downtown Dayton for an Elvis sandwich, or pick up the Steamboat Special on old-fashioned bread at Knoxvilles Steamboat Sandwiches. Visit Chattanooga's NorthShore to get a great meal at Aretha Franksteins, featured on the Rachel Ray Show, or have a BLT dog and chili at Good Dog, a funky storefront made entirely of repurposed materials.

In Nashville, check out the sandwiches at 12th South Taproom and Grill. The four Noshville locations offer up everything that makes a New York deli proud, from corned beef hash to matzah ball soup. Or head across the river to Nashvilles Inglewood area for the hot bar and deli specials at Mitchell Delicatessen. When in midtown Memphis, make the Young Avenue Deli the one-stop shop for deli sandwiches, billiards, live music, beer and more.
