Ernie’s Sports Deli, Orem, UT

Far from a traditional Italian or Jewish deli, Ernie’s Sports Deli is a stereotypically all-American experience. Served on Kaiser rolls, a variety of sandwiches are available with everything from roast beef and turkey to scrambled eggs and breaded chicken. 

Gandolfo’s New York Deli, Multiple locations

Out of all Utah delis, Gandolfo’s is arguably the most successful. It’s most successful sandwiches? The Brooklyn Bridge, which features turkey, bacon, provolone, lettuce, tomato, mayo, salt, and pepper; and the warm Crew Breakfast Sandwich with three eggs, bacon, sausage, a buttery bun, salt, pepper, and melted American cheese. 

Feldman’s Deli, Salt Lake City, UT

A traditional New York-style delicatessen, Feldman’s Deli serves up all the Jewish specialties, including pastrami, corned beef, and Reuben sandwiches as well as pierogi, matzo ball soup, kielbasa, and brisket. Have no fear, you will leave Feldman’s 100 percent satisfied. 

Knickerbockers Deli, Salt Lake City & Cottonwood Heights, UT

There could hardly be a better name for a deli than “Knickerbockers,” and that’s exactly what the deli’s creators wanted to do: convince customers that if it’s a good name, it has to have good food, right? Right. If you’re really looking for a treat (and a bit of pain for your arteries), try the “Godfatha.” A toasted Tuscan baguette loaded with pastrami, pepperoni, salami, banana peppers, red, onion, lettuce, tomato, olives, pepper jack, and chipotle aioli, this sandwich will give you an offer you can’t refuse.
