There is no competition in Chico, or for that matter, in a lot of places! This is one of the best sandwich places I've ever been to. Service could be better.

First time here and what a value. Whole sandwich for $5.95. Good selection of deli sides too. This is kind hard to find. Drive behind the Mexican food place on east and you will see it past the uhaul trucks. Great little out of the way place. Think fast food seat down kind of atmosphere if you are eating there...

Don't go here if you are looking for atmosphere. This is just a small Deli that has the best salads and sandwiches you can get. Don't go at noon unless you are prepaid for a line of people, everyone wants to eat here for lunch.

Spiteri's has been around for many years. They are always good, consistent, with their food. I have mainly stayed with sandwiches, but the salads always look good. Friendly service and call in ahead for take out.

We stopped in with friends for a bite to eat at lunch. There was a line to order at the deli counter and somehow we thought there must always be one at this popular but out-of-the-way deli. I had a turkey, cranberry, cucumber, sprouts on a dark rye. It was very good. We ate at one of the picnic benches... More

We love their sandwiches. You can have any bread, meat, cheese, etc., and have a hard time eating all of it. Always frest tasting. Staff is especially nice and accommodating. Lots of room to sit.

Just had lunch at Spiteri's Deli and can't believe how great it was. They have an excellent selection of quality meats and cheeses and the bread was very fresh. Large selection of upscale sodas and beers to enjoy as well. I had the smoked turkey and it was wonderful, my friend had the pastrami which was fresh and very lean.

Spiteri's Delicatessen is my favorite sandwich joint and deli in Chico. Why? Because they are CONSISTENT! Delicious fresh meat, bread, veggies, cheese, amazing selection of beverages and sides, all for a decent price. The location is a bit hidden, but locals know exactly where this gem is hidden. There is outdoor and indoor seating but it can get crowded during... More
