Millburn Delicatessen

Here’s a place that’s been around since 1946 and has received some serious accolades during that time. It was even selected as the No. 1 sandwich shop in New Jersey by Andy Kryza and Matt Lynch at Thrillist.

If you want some seriously great eats without an ounce of pretentiousness, Millburn Delicatessen is just the ticket. Try out some of their favorites like the cubano with fresh roast pork, ham and melted Swiss cheese or the “Godfadda,” which is a fried chicken cutlet with fresh mozzarella, bacon and homemade Russian dressing.

It’s the real deal.

Town Hall Deli

With a history that goes back 90 years, Town Hall Deli is genuine New Jersey landmark.

Although it’s known as “the birthplace of the sloppy joe,” you’ll find many other favorites like a Mufulletta with ham, Genoa salami, provolone and olive spread and the “Godfather” with grilled chicken, mozzarella, roasted red peppers and balsamic vinegar.

If you’re looking for charm, history and a good sandwich, this is the place.

Richard’s Deli

Richard’s Deli got its start in 1982 and has been a local favorite ever since. You’ve got all of the classics like corned beef and pastrami along with jumbo triple-deckers, wraps and paninis.

They also have a killer breakfast selection, so you can fill up on the goodness any time of day.

Foster Village Kosher Delicatessen

Located in Bergenfield, Foster Village has been serving up amazing sandwiches since 1966.

As you might expect, this is a classic Jewish deli where you’ll find delicious salami, pastrami and corned beef. But there’s also some amazing seafood like salty belly lox and smoked sable as well as homemade chicken matzo ball soup.

Annie’s Deli

Here’s another family-owned operation that’s got plenty of history to it. Annie’s Deli has been around for over 30 years and has earned a reputation as one of the top sandwich spots in Pluckemin.

They’ve also got some epic names for their sandwiches, including “Jake the Brain Surgeon” with hot pastrami, mustard and pickles and “Kindly Old Doc Pike” with turkey, bacon and melted Havarti.

The Kibitz Room

“Where size does matter” is the slogan of this Cherry Hill deli. If it’s a massive sandwich filled with high-quality ingredients that you’re seeking, look no further than The Kibitz Room.

They even have their own mega meal challenge, where diners try to consume the colossal G.B.M.F with corned beef, pastrami, turkey, roast beef and brisket within 55 minutes.

Definitely try one of their mouthwatering reubens with hot sauerkraut, melted Swiss cheese and Russian dressing.

A Deli Paradise

Although New Jersey is the fifth smallest state in the US in terms of square mileage, it’s packed full of amazing delis. Many of which have a rich history that simply can’t be duplicated. So, a drive through the Garden State is sure to yield some truly delicious sandwiches that are capable of pleasing even the most discerning palate.
