Our Legacy

A Staple in PQ

The Deli Stop is known for serving generations of loyal customers fresh sandwiches, burgers & fries, and the best craft beers on the planet! We have gained a special following of customers, unmatched in today’s business culture. The Deli Stop is family owned and locally operated in Rancho Penasquitos since the very beginning. We have been serving craft beers before the time people knew what craft beers were.

With our solid reputation in the community, The Deli Stop welcomes families, friends and everyone else who wants to experience the food, fun and excitement with the nostalgic look and feel of the good ol’ days!

What People are Saying

“My husband and I stopped in to use the burger and fries coupon we found on the Yelp app. It was really good! It happened to be karaoke night, so we got some free entertainment while we ate our burgers (which were perfect). We definitely would return!”



“I ordered food from Grubhub through yelp. I ordered their onion rings, garlic fries, turkey sandwich and their chicken California sandwich. Everything was amazing! I was very pleased on the quality of the food especially it being delivered, it still tasted fresh. I would recommend this place to anyone who’s is in the area.”



“Great food, great people, wonderful local spot to catch a game or grab a drink. Support this family run business over the Jersey Mikes next door and you will not be disappointed! This is a cult classic spot for anyone familiar with the PQ are – let’s make sure they are supported for many years to come!”
