Deli's, Kansas City: 7 reviews and 17 photos

by basstbn

A tradition in the Westport area. I've been coming here ever since I moved to the KC area in 1973. It has the look and feel of an east coast Italian deli, not to mention the food. Big difference - the help is a lot friendlier.

Favorite Dish: No doubt about it - Kansas City metro area's best meatball grinder. (I have never had a better one, anywhere!) Generous portions of meat and cheese, with a just the right blend of spicy sweet sauce in a hot, crisp roll. A real deal at less than US$5. Good sides, too, especially the artichoke and tomato salad. Home-made cannolis are ok, but not great.

Price Comparison: least expensive
