Welcome to Sal’s Deli

Best places to eat in Chicago

Sal’s Deli is one of the best places to eat in Chicago, and I am not just saying that because it’s my place. We have good quality Boar’s Head meats and cheeses, Turano’s fresh baked bread and loads of condiments and toppings to choose from.

Make Your Own

You can MYO (Make Your Own) Deli size sandwich with unlimited toppings for no extra charge! That’s right NO EXTRA!! No more $1.25 per topping restricting you. Now you’re free to be as creative as you want and we love creativity so.. go wild! All our sandwiches are made to order so changes are no big deal.  Oh yeah, guess what, you guessed it we have food delivery Chicago.

Italian Beef

Chicago beef, this is a big deal, and you know that the best meat makes the best sandwiches Boar’s Head makes a great Italian beef, full of flavor. Along with my secret sauce, makes this one a great Chicago Italian beef.

Philly Cheesesteak

Good food in Chicago is not hard to find but a good Philly cheesesteak is. Being from Philadelphia I know just how they are supposed to taste.  Whether you like Pat’s Steaks in South Philadelphia or Jim’s Steaks on South Street you will fall in love with our Philly cheesesteak.

Homemade Meatballs

Around the holidays my grandma Yolanda cooked for, you know, about 30 family members so you can imagine the amount of meatballs we rolled had to be in the hundreds. To me at 7 it looked like a thousand. She always said “don’t put too much bread crumb Salvie”, that was her name for me, put in some bread and milk it will make them soft.” And it did. Still to this day, I can’t get them quite the same but they are really close. This recipe has been in our family for 80 years and now I am bringing it to this great little Chicago deli.


Not everyone will be able to have my grandma’s homemade meatballs especially if they are vegetarian or gluten free. But don’t worry Sal’s Deli has plenty of vegetarian and gluten free options! That’s right; we have several vegetarian options which include our Veggie Panini (zucchini, portabella mushroom, yellow squash, onions, spinach and mozzarella (cheese optional). The SLT (Seitan, Lettuce, Tomato and vegenaise). Take a look at our menu for more veggie items to choose from.

Gluten Free

If you are gluten intolerant Sal’s is the best deli Chicago for you. We have two types of gluten free sandwich bread- Vegan seeded and white, both made at Chicago’s own Rose’s Wheat Free Bakery which I found to be the best gluten free bread around. Use these breads with any of our gluten free Boar’s Head meat and cheese selections to make your favorite MYO sandwiches. Our Turkey chili, chicken salad, tuna salad and many more gluten free items to choose from just ask your deli clerk. They will be happy to help you.

Sauces and Spreads

I know how you love your spicy food Chicago. So I made you Great Chicago Fire Habanero Hot Sauce© and our Mild Ghost Chili Shake©. Just some of our great homemade condiments you can enjoy at the deli Chicago. Or you can get one right here on salsdeli-chicago.com’s on line menu.

Homemade Deli Salads

I just must tell you about our deli side salads and soups. Backyard potato salad, American pasta salad, Cole slaw, tomato soup,turkey chili and great homemade chicken soup. I could go on and on but, that’s enough for now. Check back for new items added to the specials regularly.
