I don't know about you but I'm a huge fan of deli food.

I have a friend who lives in Brooklyn and when I visit him, we walk over 11 miles to make our "sacred pilgrimage" to Katz Deli where we can "send a salami to your boy in the Army." They still have those signs posted from World War II.

You may also remember Katz Deli featured in the famous Meg Ryan scene in "When Harry Met Sally".

But enough about Katz's. The best deli food is right here in New Jersey.

As Bill Doyle wrote, Hobby's Deli in Newark has been named one of the best delis in the country by Tasting Table.

Judi Franco wrote about the Millburn Diner expanding into Westfield, as did I.

Let's not forget Hot Shot Subs. Don't let the name fool you. One of my all-time favorite sandwiches is the #62 corned beef pastrami Swiss cheese and Russian dressing. So you can see here at New Jersey 101.5, we love a good deli like you.

What makes a great deli for me is how lean the corned beef is, and how tasty the pastrami. I'm a big fan of those triple-decker sandwiches at Harolds New York Deli restaurant with corned beef, pastrami, and turkey with Russian dressing that seem to go on forever. I even love the pickle bar.

But that's me. I asked my radio and social media following what they thought is a great New Jersey deli and here's what they came up with. Enjoy!
