Temecula Can Always Use Another Deli

A Nutter Deli is a classic, no frills deli. Nothing fancy, but the food and atmosphere are good.

There's always room for one more deli, and the aptly named "A Nutter Deli" is a welcome addition.

The deli fills the space left vacant when Chronic Tacos went under in the Tower Plaza.

It serves straight-forward deli fare: sandwiches, chips, potato and macaroni salad and sodas.

Most sandwiches run about seven bucks. Add chips for a dollar, or you can add chips, a side and a soda for $3.29.

The offerings are good, though they're not going to dazzle you with their uniqueness. For example, the "Sandbagger" is bacon, lettuce, tomato and mayo on your choice of bread -- a hoagie roll, rye bread, multigrain, sour dough, white or wheat bread. So, it's basically a BLT with a cooler name.

The restaurant proves a lunch doesn't have to be fancy or one of a kind to be good. "A Perfect Game" is one of the highlights. It's a grilled pastrami, sauerkraut, swiss cheese and thousand island dressing on rye bread with a dill pickle on the side. It's flavorful, and the way they press the rye bread is great.

If you don't like any of the specialty sandwiches, you can build your own for $5.99 by choosing a meat and kind of bread, and they put it together with mayo, mustard, pickles, tomatoes, red onions, lettuce and your choice of cheese.

One of the best things about the restaurant is the location. The longest wall in the shop is lined with windows, so the feel is light and airy.

The service is quick and casual, so it's a nice, cheap place to go for lunch during your lunch break.

It's also in a nice, central location. Some of the best other sandwich shops in Temecula -- , for example, or , for another -- are a long drive away.
