It was my second trip in six months to this overrated deli....my office is only about 30 feet away from it. I got an Italian foot-long with the works. I could barely see the layer of meat as it was thinner than the Jamaican guy who stuffs himself into a box on the Pearl Street Mall (any hoagie in the NE being a 300lb opera singer). They might call it a grinder in the Boston area, but the only thing that was ground in this meal was the roof of my mouth....it is still seriously sore 15 minutes after forcing the rock-hard roll down my throat (I still had to justify spending the $9). ||

I'm not sure if the comments above were paid to say what they said or what. I have not tried the cheesesteak, but with that roll, I wouldn't take the chance....especially for that outrageous price. ||

To be fair on the price, it is in the central part of tourist area and rent ain't cheap there. Still, no chance of giving Salvaggio's Deli another go for me.

Pros: Meat was quality

Cons: Bread, rock-hard. Meat, low-quantity. Price,

The Prime Rib sandwich is divine, but I avoid going to Salvaggio's if at all possible - I only agree to enjoy their tasty sandwiches if someone else picks them up. In addition to the dirty, crowded, unpleasant interior, the ass-hats who work the counter have successfully ruined every dine-in/take-out experience I've ever had in the store. I'm in the customer service industry, so few things offend me as much as rude, condescending people in service positions. Every time I've ever visited the deli, the men behind the counter have behaved as though they were doing me a favor by making my sandwich. Um, it's your JOB to make sandwiches, guys - If you don't like it, get a new job!

There are lots of places to enjoy a good sandwich in Boulder (if you're already in the neighborhood, try Snarff's just up the street) and I refuse to hand my money to nasty people. Congratulations, Salvaggio's! You seem to have hired the creme de la creme of hostile jerks in Boulder County.

This isn't the type of place of place you come for ambiance or customer service. You go because the subs are amazing. Its fresh, good quality Boars Head meat and hand made bread.
I used to work there years ago and I can vouch for that. I have lived other places since Boulder and have yet to find a Philly cheese steak that compares....even in Philly.

Pros: Best and fresh meat and bread around

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

When you enter the shop, you notice two things:
1- it's not very well kept;
2- there isn't much of a selection.

Then you see the guy in the back who is always making rolls and he has quite the attitude. He walks over to the deli counter, unplugs the scale and rips it off the counter so he can measure out dough while the guys cutting the boars head have to walk into the back for measurements.

Aside from the above, there isn't a coffee machine, so I walk up to the counter and order egg whites and a coffee, thinking this is an actual deli. They say "we don't have coffee". Speechless, I shrug it off thinking this must be how they do it in Boulder. Then I see the plaque on the wall showing they have been voted the best deli for several years running. Anyone who has been to a Chicago or NY deli would laugh at this being called an Italian Deli. Perhaps the owner is Italian, but the lack of hospitality, pitiful selection and dirty floors are not indicative of an "Italian Deli" as I know it. Capisco?

Salvaggios is not your ordinary sandwich shop. It's an authentic deli experience. The sandwiches are made from the best and freshest ingredients and just have that true deli taste that you don't get from wanna-be's or well-known chains. I highly recommend this sandwich shop. It seems like a decent value for the money, too. Either location is great, but the one at Pearl and 26th is more of a real deli experience with the meats and cheeses on display than the small kiosk type shop on the Pearl Street Mall.

The sandwiches were amazing, I don't know what the reviewer was talking about - especially since I'm from San Francisco and I've spent plenty of time in NYC. The meat is incredible, the fixings are good, the bread is delicious and the staff is friendly. All for a reasonably priced meal. Yum!

The sandwiches are fresh, tasty and large. Compared with other sandwich places, Salvaggio's wins hands down. I will definitely be a repeat customer.

In Short
This eatery's decor could be described as minimalist--with just a few tables and the serving line. The food is definitely New York style--there's freshly-sliced meats, less-than-bubbly service and a distinct lack of…
