Foodies, Be Sure to Dine at American Deli


Here’s a piece of good news that will cheer up travelers: as of this writing, nearly half of the total population in the United States has received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. About 39.2 percent of Americans have achieved the “fully vaccinated” status.

Fully vaccinated individuals in the US can travel within the country at low risk. Given that summertime is fast approaching, many Americans are looking to hit the road to satisfy their pent-up vacation demands.

One of the tourist destinations you should visit at least once in your life is Atlanta. This city offers world-class restaurants along with an abundance of events and attractions. If you have plans of traveling to Atlanta this summer (and like to do food tours), consider dining at the first location of American Deli.

American Deli: An Overview

American Deli is a quick-service restaurant that offers much more than just sandwiches to hungry diners. The food establishment serves savory and tasty dishes in a laid-back and friendly atmosphere.

The story of American Deli began in 1989 when its first restaurant launched at South Dekalb Mall in Atlanta. The goal of this restaurant is to make all guests feel at home and a part of the family.

Unsurprisingly, customers love the food, and the brand eventually became more popular. As a result, American Deli expanded to Columbus, Georgia and opened more locations in Atlanta.

The restaurant has been growing slowly and steadily to this day. American Deli has expanded to Texas and other states in the Southeast region. So yes, this classic is still open.

Just like any big family, some of the locations of American Deli are a bit unique (perhaps even downright quirky), but it prides itself on two things: serving fantastic food and making each dining experience better than the last.
