If you haven't been there this place is a treat for anyone. small seating but worth the trip, one of the best Reuben sandwiches I've had in my entire life. Everyone in our group got something different and nobody had any regrets.

Ahhhhhh what is NOT to love about Blues City Deli - casual atmosphere, friendly family owned and operated staff, THE SANDWICHES ARE TO DIE FOR, live music, sitting outside taking it all on the street. It's a St. Louis MUST DO.
