Blues City Deli

From the muffalettas and po' boys on the menu to the concert posters, album covers and photos that cover the walls (look for the shot of owner Vince Valenza from his club-gigging days with music buddy Pennsylvania Slim), Blues City Deli screams New Orleans. Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons in this Benton Park deli feature free live concerts from blues artists and more. On these days, a line goes out the door and often around the corner. Even if the wait was long, it'd still be worth it for that sweet (or spicy - you choose) "Memphix Stax" pulled pork piled high with slaw, but with an expeditious sandwich assembly line, visitors never have to go hungry for long. Aside from a "soup of the day" and a couple of salads, we're talking all sandwiches, all the time. Grab a quick bite, kick back with a cold beer and soak up some quality local music.
