Munchies New York Style Delicatessen
6147 Lakeside Dr, Reno, NV 89511
Munchie's has the most incredibly delicious food. It's the best deli anywhere. They bake fresh Dutch crunch, sourdough, white, and wheat rolls daily. Their fresh hand-picked produce, the Boar's Head meats and cheeses, the soup, the salads, the bread and the service--all are perfection in food. I consider myself very lucky to know of this little gem in southwest Reno. I've been eating there at least three times a week for the last five years, so I can tell you first-hand that every single item on the menu is superb. They have this amazing Feta spread that comes on their Greek sandwich with Kalamata olives, salami, ham, and Capicollo--you wouldn't believe it. Then there's the BLT, which is easily the best I've ever had. The tuna salad is fresh, all-white, true quality made from only solid white Albacore--not the pink and brown crap they use elsewhere. The chicken salad, turkey salad, egg salad are all classics too. They make a mean Gyro with fresh-made Tzatziki, ripe tomatoes, cucumber slices, and crumbled Feta. They make a dynamite Ruben with marble rye, corned beef, melted Swiss, sauerkraut. I find it hard to peg my favorite items, because they're all my favorites. Once in a while they have a Sicilian pizza that's literally incredible. It's simplicity: a Focaccia-like bread with modest red sauce and sliced mozzarella, but it's got texture that beats all. The cream of mushroom soup made fresh from all Criminis is liquid pleasure to my taste buds. My wife's a big fan of Munchie's also. All my favorites have become hers too including especially the Greek sandwich, the BLT, the pizza, and the mushroom soup. Lately I've been ordering their California Dreamin' sandwich with ham, turkey, pepper Jack cheese, and avocado. It must be a local favorite, because I hear about one in five customers ordering it when I'm there. I've also been ordering their veggie sandwich on wheat with fresh pesto, artichoke hearts, avocado, sauteed mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, and lettuce. It's really good. If you get a chance to get over to Lakeside and McCarran, stop by Munchie's a block away at Lakeside Crossing on Lakeside and Ridgeview. I'll bet you'll appreciate the culinary genius behind recipes too.
