Cheese 'N Stuff

5042 N. Central Ave. Phoenix, AZ 85012 | Central Phoenix | 602-266-3636

Location Description:

If you haven't been to this cute little neighborhood eatery on Camelback and Central, there's a good chance your parents or your grandparents have -- the delicatessen’s been a Valley staple since 1949, and in 2011, owner Stan Zawatski sold its one millionth sandwich. Belly up to the meat and cheese counter and select from dozens of signature sandwiches like the turkey-laden Doughboy, the New Yorker with corned beef, a spicy Sicilian sub, or make one of your own creations. Then, sit down at one of the three covered picnic tables and chat with the regulars or peruse the small selection of hard-to-find grocery items until your order’s up.
