Business Description

Rochester Deli is a hidden gem located in the historic downtown area of Waukesha, Wisconsin. This American deli offers a wider variety of fresher, tastier food than your typical fast food chain restaurants. The deli is known for its Reuben sandwich, which has been voted the best sandwich shop for two consecutive years by the WISN A-List.

Chef and owner Dan Strackbein was struck by the deli idea while attending the Culinary Institute in Hyde Park, New York. After enjoying all the marvelous delis in Manhattan and Little Italy, Dan decided to open a New York-style deli in Waukesha. The response was overwhelming and the deli has become a staple in the community.

Local customers come daily for their signature corned beef with fresh horseradish and Düsseldorf mustard on seeded rye bread. The menu also includes grilled Reubens, Clubhouses, Turkey Cheddar Paninis, Spicy Pork Wraps, Chicken Dumpling Soup, COBB Salad, and homemade soups available daily. The deli's desserts are also a huge hit, with delectable sweets filling three large dessert cases, all baked by Chef Dan's daughter, Alicia, and her team.

Rochester Deli prides itself on the importance of quality and great customer service. The atmosphere is casual and welcoming, making it the perfect spot for a quick lunch or a leisurely meal with friends and family. The deli has also become a popular catering option for local businesses and events.

The Rochester Deli story began in 2000 and has continued to grow and flourish with the addition of Periwinkle's Bakery on Broadway, next door to the deli, in 2013. The bakery offers premium ingredients, cherished family recipes, and hard work and love to offer you the finest dessert selections.

If you're in the Waukesha area, be sure to stop by Rochester Deli for a delicious meal and a taste of New York-style deli cuisine. You won't be disappointed.
