Readers' Choice: Favorite Deli

Long Island delis are the best in the country. But which one slings the sandwiches you crave again and again?

A list of sandwiches named for local characters and attractions, gallon-sized cups of iced tea and every type of side salad you can imagine. Sound familiar? It’s the calling card of Long Island’s world-class delis. But the reality is, each have their own specialties that keep people coming back.

This week, we want to find out which deli you rely on most.

Readers’ Choice is a new weekly feature where we ask you – our readers – to tell us your top picks on the businesses and local attractions that get your loyalty.

Each Monday we’ll list our nominees recommendations. Did we leave your go-to spot off the list? Go ahead and add it in comments.

On Friday we’ll tabulate all of the poll votes, comments, recent directory reviews and emails and crown a Reader’s Choice. Please only vote once in the poll, because any attempt to game the results could end up in your favorite businesses being disqualified.

Here are our nominees: 

Bagel Basket

Pastrami N Friends

Solitro's Deli closed over 2 years ago and the building was torn down. Great job Patch. I'm surprised there aren't pictures of the empty lot.
