Montana
> Deli: Tagliare Delicatessen
> Location: Missoula

A Missoula standby for more than a decade, Tagliare Delicatessen gets its bread fresh daily from a small local bakery, and many of its meats and cheeses are imported directly from Italy. They all come together to create some of the finest Italian sandwiches you’ll find anywhere. Standouts include the Sublime (prosciutto, hot sopressata, burrata, fresh walnut pesto, spicy garlic aioli, sun-dried tomatoes, and arugula) and the signature Megadeth (ham, finocchiona, hot sopressata, pepperoni, hot capicola, smoked mozzarella, pepperoncini, tomatoes, and “feisty slaw”).

> Deli: Città Deli
> Location: McCook

Founded in the small town of McCook by Denver natives Bill and Jade Lesko in 2015, Città  Deli started out as a simple Italian sandwich shop, but quickly evolved into something more. Today, it’s serving the community as a true New York-style Italian deli that offers fresh salads, soups, gourmet sandwiches, specialty grocery items, a variety of pasta, Italian entrées, and a selection of beer and wine. Top-quality imported meats and cheeses are sliced to order and turkey into spectacular sandwiches, and entrees include lasagna, manicotti, jumbo stuffed shells, and meatballs. Don’t miss the cheesecake for dessert.

> Deli: Biederman’s Deli
> Location: Plymouth

Biederman’s Deli is as famous for its sandwiches as for its wide variety of local beers on tap. It’s a friendly, low-key half-pub-half-deli that’s been going strong since 1973, and locals (including Plymouth State University students) love the wide variety of specialty sandwiches made with Boar’s Head meats, but they can also customize their own with a choice of 13 breads (including wraps and croissants), 18 meats, 10 cheeses, and countless toppings and condiments. The most iconic creation here is the Balboa, your choice of meat and extra cheese, served hot on a sub roll with garlic butter.

> Deli: Harold’s New York Deli
> Location: Edison

The legendary Harold’s Deli is a Garden State icon. Its wide variety of jewish deli staples are all essentially perfect, from the smoked fish platters to the old-school dinners including Hungarian goulash and hot tongue in sweet and sour gravy. But there’s one image that comes to mind when we think of Harold’s: towering, absolutely massive deli sandwiches. Seriously, one sandwich can easily serve five people! Bring your friends and get ready for a Jewish deli experience for the ages.
