I’ve done it before on here, but I must sing the praises of Koch’s Deli on 43rd and Locust again. This place is magnificent.
The man who makes the sandwiches will charm the shit out of you, giving you endless free samples of meats, cheeses, and enough deli pickles to fill you up before you even receive your order. The wall covered in pictures and letters from the masses who have loved Koch’s Deli is a tribute to just how special this place really is.
I’m a man who loves his hoagies and hot sandwiches, but Koch’s does the simple sandwich better than anybody else in the city. Make sure you go there with time to spare, because the charismatic and hilarious owner will keep you laughing and talking for much longer than you intended.
