It is what it is: a basic, student-oriented deli, but some of the sandwiches are classics (I remember eating them in the 80s!) and you can't beat the hours. Overall a terrific resource for Charlottesville, especially when business keeps you from eating full meals at...More

Not sure about all the less than great reviews for Littlejohns. I mean its a 24 hour sandwich shop on college corner, not a gourmet restaurant. The staff were funny, had a great attitude, made good suggestions as to what we may like since the...More

If I were a student at UVA, I'd make a promise to try every one of their sandwiches before graduating. It's easy to see why they've been there a long time. Long lines move quickly and they know how to make a real sandwich, no...More

This is the best deli, probably the best restaurant I've eaten at. The only thing I can recall liking more is the wagyu filet mignon I had in Texas. A slight problem is that 1/5 visits you get a sandwich that is just great instead...More

Went here for a quick business lunch after a meeting on-site. The Sammie's were good and the service was quick and friendly. I docked them a point BC the drink station was a little messy and sticky, the sweet tea was not sweet at all,...More

Littlejohn's should consider dropping "New York" from their name because they are far better than a typical New York deli. Their menu is quite comprehensive in terms of the varied types of sandwiches and salads. They have very tasty and unique combinations and the hot...More

Nothing to dislike about this place. I have eaten here four times and each time it is delicious. I was with my 3 kids and they all loved their sandwiches. The menu is fairly large though so take a minute to read it all. This...More

I just moved to Cville last month. I'm originally from New York and was excited, after 5 years abroad, to get a deli sandwich delivered to my home for dinner. I called in my order around 5:15 on a weekday evening. The guy on the...More

This was a nice find while we were staying in Charlottesville, we were a little disappointed to learn that they stop serving breakfast/breakfast sandwiches at 11. The sandwich selection is pretty great, I got a Reuben which was made to perfection. Just the right amount...More

Many good, interesting sandwich options. There are also about five vegetarian options as well as "lighter" flatbreads. Sandwiches are very filling and prices are reasonable. It gets very crowded but the line moves quickly.
