A typical choice for purchasing ready-to-eat items, such as sandwiches, Italian classics, and Eastern European specialties, is a deli. Cheapism developed a list of the nation’s finest delis. The website adds, “Today, the delicatessen is no longer the bastion of a single ethnic community, but a mainstay of American food – and you can find wonderful delis not only in the packed boroughs of New York City but in every part of the United States.”
According to the ranking, one of the top delis in America is Texas. Houston’s Kenny & Ziggy’s Deli made the list of eateries. The website explains: “Ziggy Gruber, a third-generation deli proprietor who owned good delicatessens in New York City and Los Angeles, was featured in a 2015 documentary about Jewish deli culture in the United States.
His partner, Kenny Friedman, has ties to the renowned Carnegie Deli in New York. Its business, Kenny & Ziggy’s, is now the preeminent deli in Houston, with two locations offering menus as extensive as their 200 sandwich options, many of which are customizable.
