Large sandwich and even dinner menu. Large portions. Delicious bread and rolls for every sandwich with fresh veggies and it's fixed exactly how you want it. Kids loved the fries and the mozzarella sticks. We always have leftovers.

Their sandwiches, subs, Are huge with great fresh baked daily sub rolls. They also offer fresh daily dinner rolls that are perfect, and sides by the quart to go, all good. Good seafood also but a bit pricey.

Good food. Love the fries. A little out of the way but worth it. Friendly people working there. I Sanford's factories were still in business this place would be a lunch time favorite.

Decent menu with lots of sandwich and dinner choices plus apps. Pretty uneven though lately in quality. Seems kind of hit or miss so it might depend on how busy they are and who's working. Our go to seems to be steak and cheese and the turkey goobler though lately they are always not doing turkey. Chicken salad isn't bad... More

My title for this review pretty much sums it up. Mainly a take-out place. The Italian sandwiches were made as requested in fairly good time and were reasonably priced. We'll stop in from time to time for a good, quick lunch.

It's small- takeout and can be a wait at rush hour but worth the wait. Best Haddock sandwhich, onion rings and great rolls. Consistent year after year. Been a customer for 52 years.

Been enjoying Rosas Deli for years. They make great sandwiches and the BEST crabmeat sandwiches, in particular. Real crabmeat! The problem is, they hardly ever have any! Most times I call, they are out. Yesterday they had none (AGAIN). Tonight I called to order my husband a chicken sandwich and I asked if they had crabmeat. The guy said they... More

Rosa's Deli is one of those landmark places that the locals have known and loved for years. I've been going there since I was a kid. The home made bread is delicious and the meat and vegetables on the subs are always fresh. I highly recommend Rosa's Deli.

Grew up down the street and consumed many Italian sandwiches here. Family also loves their cole slaw and baked beans. Love to go there and smell the freshly baked bread. Hope they stay in business another 50 years.
