Friendly owners. Fresh bread. And no skimping on the cold cuts.
All of the highest-rated delis on Yelp share these commonalities.
Here are some of Bergen County's best delis, according to Yelp.
A Family Affair, Fair Lawn : "Authentic prosciutto, mozzarella, cherry peppers, and all the good stuff. Fantastic value and definitely worth the trip out here."
Cosmo's Salumeria, Hackensack : "These people are sandwich clerics of the highest order. The meats and mozzarella are are excellent. The bread is a great balance of crusty and soft. Most importantly, the ingredient ratios are perfectly balanced."
Swiss Pork Store, Fair Lawn : "Excellent old school German/Central European butcher shop justifiably known for its house made wursts & cured meats."
Vitamia & Sons, Lodi: " I love this place. Traditional Italian. They have a large variety of homemade ravioli and pasta. Great stuffed breads. Along with chicken, eggplant, rice balls etc and fresh mozzarella."
Karl Ehmer, Hillsdale : "The selection of meats it's huge. The Quality is the best! The butcher so nice and helpful and the rest of the staff all very nice." ** Maybe best known for its hot dog cart outside **
Matera's On Park, Rutherford: " Do yourself a favor and stop in your first time, don't just order and pickup. There are so many daily specials, salads, STUFFED BREADS, and desserts to choose from."
Enzo's Market, Fort Lee: " I absolutely fell in love recently but this establishment has been here for years. The homemade breads and fresh mozarella took my breath away."
Jerry's Gourmet, Englewood : "Endless variety of cheeses and Italian imported sausages. I have never been to Italy but I assume Jerry's is just a peek of heaven that the shops there may be."
JD's, Oakland : "A great hidden gem here in Oakland, NJ. It's definitely a great lunch spot if you are in the area. They have many options to choose, from salads to signature sandwiches to make your own."
Italian Riviera, Waldwick: "Authentic Italian deli right here in northern Bergen County. Fresh ingredients and a friendly staff to add. I usually order the Italian hero with fresh mozzarella and it is always top notch. The eggplant is also very good."
