REVIEWS OF Big Top Delicatessen IN Maine

J Homyak

Best sandwich shop in Maine. We've tried many sandwich shops across Maine and this is the best by far. We had the Gobbler and Turkey Club, they were great. Great service also.

Otto Von Schnitzelbritches

They try, but don't really know how to be a New York style deli.

Adam Wildenstein

A go-to deli. I don't agree with any of the complaints I saw below. I had the Sonny's Supreme and it was great.

Bonnie Ellen

My choice for over 9 years.... Tuna melt, provolone, lettuce, extra mayo... On 2 english muffins... The Best!

Tim McClure

Good corned beef. Very good liverwurst. Don't let the long line scare you. It goes fast.

Jason Armstrong

Awesome food. Fast. Friendly staff. Huge selection of sandwiches.

Lisa Love

Love their gluten-free wraps and sandwiches.

Andy Winslow

Big Top is a real gem and reminds me of some of the better delis I would frequent when I lived in New York City. I absolutely love the food. My only complaint is that I wish they stayed open later so I could partake more often.

Betty Smith

We had to feed over 50 people with an assortment of great sandwiches, salads, vegetarian options and gluten free options. Service was impeccable, very accommodating and gracious. Thank you Tony and Brian for making my job a little bit easier. Highly recommend this Deli!

Stephen Dobbins

Excellent food. Excellent prices. They use the best high-quality meats and cheeses in their sandwiches.

James Nall

great deli, great sandwiches and deli style food. If you want a quick bite to eat that's really good, stop in here.


Such good food and a creative and perfect menu. I love this place and recommend it to anyone who enjoys food.

Tara Warren

Over priced, small portions, and excellent customer service are the 3 things I would use to describe this place. The staff was amazing and it was super busy. There was a line out the door so they must do something right. Also their menu was quite extensive. They have something for everyone. And they are willing to accommodate special requests. This must be a local place as they knew a lot of their customers by name. Maybe we just didn't order the right thing. We would try it again another time and will update our review if we do.

Tony Sachs

I own it.

Bill Derr

Awesome food and great prices. Definitely stop here if you're in town!

Lizzy Wytas

Always fresh and delicious. There are options to please just about everyone!

Michelle Johnson

Great place. The owner is awesome.

Maurice Libner

Decent sandwiches for lunch, still reasonably priced, lotsa choices

Kevin Smith

Fresh, delicious food at a low price.

Scott Brown

Always come here when I'm in the area. Awesome sandwiches.

Rex McKeon

Best sandwich spot in Brunswick! Hot and cold subs are awesome.

Derek T

Best turkey club I’ve had in awhile.

Andrew Ostrom

A great choice for lunch on the main drag of Brunswick, Maine. The menu consumes most of a wall, that's because it's so extensive. My wife had eggplant parm, and I had a "Philadelphia" steak and cheese. The wide tells me the eggplant was good (one of the few things I refuse to eat), and my steak and cheese was good, even though it was about 400 miles from Philadelphia, both geographically and culinarily. (To be fair - having spent almost 5 years in the Philly area - I have yet to find anything that's really close to the real thing more than 50 miles away, though T.C. Lando's near here is the closest.)

Susan Flint

Brian Solvesen

Tony, and the guys make a great sandwich.


These guys are great. Get the Barnum!

Lewis Holland

Great food, and atmosphere.

Mirror Dragon Tarot

Big Top is my favorite lunch spot! The staff is terrific, they go out of their way to be friendly and helpful and the food is fresh, plentiful and tasty.

bill stanley

Fresh food worth your money great place

Adam D.

Good food, but no one was wearing gloves during food prep? Kind of off-putting.

Cynthia Edmonds

Always a good place to drop in for a quick breakfast sandwich. I'm partial to the Tom Thumb with egg, cheddar, avocado, and tomato (hold the Mayo). Plenty of lunch options with fun names and interesting ingredients. Note: only white bread options- English muffins, sub rolls, white bread, or pita.

Terry Collins

Always the best boars Head meats.

Marty Amberg

Excellent place to grab breakfast and I suspect more. Simple decor. Not a table service place.

Ryan Sullivan

Great food! Staff is super friendly.

Donna D

Friendly staff and great food. Thank you! Been coming there for 6 years and have never been disappointed. Going today to treat my disabled mom to a cheddar melt. I asked what she wanted and this is what she immediately asked for. She's picky so you must be doing it right. I used to work a couple blocks away. This is fantastic as is the veggie melt and the egress.

Oliver Radwan

Have been going to Big Top Deli since 2004. The same friendly service, the same fresh made and tasty food. Love this as my personal epitome of the town deli that you wish you could find in your own town. I've been searching for my replacement throughout the tri-state area and failing for fifteen years. Fortunately Tony and team always welcome me back! Favorites are the cheddar melt and the trailblazer (extra mozzarella!)

MaryBeth Moriarty

This sandwich shop is great for breakfast and lunch. Options for vegetarians and vegans! Gluten free options as well. I love the veggie sandwiches, since they do not skimp on veggies. Everything here is made with love and they strive to see their customers happy. Also look for the cash bonus card where you get points for payjng in cash!

Ken Kleinman

Any place doing this volume had to be good. It's true... A long menu of mostly breakfast and lunch diner foods. Well prepared.

Liam McDermott

Great place, get the hoax sandwich, your mouth will thank you!

Kyle Green

Best sandwiches around! Such awesome food and good prices

George Pusins

Benjamin Martens

Real good sandwiches. Egress, gobbler, and steak & cheese are my go to for lunch. Wish they opened earlier for breakfast.

Erin Chenard

Prompt and friendly service, quality ingredients, hefty sandwiches, no fuss.

Patrick Goodwin

Bill Bryan

A tasty place for breakfast or lunch!

kaleigh horne

My friend and I sat down outside at the tables after a hike and wanted to eat the food we packed. This guy came out with a napkin to give us. We thought oh how nice. Then he got all passive aggressive and was like yea go ahead and just sit here and then called us idiots. If you treat people like this I wonder how you treat your customers or even your family?

Jay Foley

These folks know what they're doing.

William Conant

Top of the line meat and cheese selection. Fantastic staff and a wonderful owner/operator. Open atmosphere for boisterous conversation and enjoyment.

Christopher Gerow

Excellent everything bagel with Lox.....mmmmm


Great sandwiches and chips, but the guy in the back is kind of rude to the employees and the customers. When he yells at people everyone can see and hear him

Jeff Wilson

Great bacon burger and onion rings

Maison Wilke

Love this place.

Lester LaCombe

Been eating here weekly for nearly 5 years. Tony and crew are some of the best in town, never disappointed. (I highly recommend the Egress, I may need an intervention for how much I love that sandwich).

A. El-Habre

I'm not sure what constitutes "New York Style" deli, but when you get a French Dip with hardly enough meat to fill half of a half of a sub roll, I think any self-respecting New Yorker would find that adjective insulting. Au ju was tasty enough, not too salty, bread was adequate. Friend's trapeze burger was dry and overcooked. A real travesty what was done to that meat. Egg on the trapeze was cooked correctly, however.

Melissa Delan

Great food. Person taking our order had a bad attitude though.

Susan Higgins


Michael Lewin

Reputation is better than the value. They advertise as a deli, and have deli items on the menu, but the portions are small and the food is pretty standard for what you pay. Went off the usual and tried the steak and cheese, which ended up being heated roast beef.

John Wagner

Best breakfast and lunch sandwiches

k Stratis

Found a hair in my Bagle they could try hair nets

Joseph Beaulieu

Awesome Lunches and atmosphere

Matthew Carr

The real deal. Owner works in the deli almost daily, solid sandwiches, good selection. Great lunch spot, breakfast sandwiches are good too.

warren hollinshead

The Reuben is solid. I asked they guy, "How's the Reuben. He responded, "Awesome." He was spot on. I like a good Reuben and an honest worker. Check it!

Mir Salek

I came here ready to give 2 star But burger was pretty good. I got extra chips and staff were very nice

mark diterlizzi

Excellent grilled sandwich,reasonable price s. Highly recommend.

It's really hard for me to justify getting lunch anywhere else with Tony's Big Top in town. My favorite sandwich is the Cheddar Melt, and they'll do it on GF bread (pretty good bread too!) if you ask.

Every time I go to the store they are "closed" for some reason or other. They close on a Saturday night at 8PM. They were closed Tuesdays at 4 PM. Come on people, why are you even here?

Carolann Murray

Great food. Great service

Ken Blanchard

Always awesome food and friendly service!

Madison Tobias

I was born and raised in Maine for my first 14 years. This is my all time favorite spot to eat. I havent eaten here since probably 2010, but if it's anything like it was then, then its AMAZING. They would give a delicious pickle with every sandwich. Their sandwiches were amazing and their mayo was also really nice and unique. I recently visited Maine and sadly did not get a chance to stop by. I hope they're still here the next time I get to visit!!!! I now live in Illinois and can't get here anymore. But if I could I would every single day.

Jason Sirois

The sandwiches here, hot or cold, are very good. Has a nice atmosphere.

Lisa Moore

A Rockie for breakfast....Wicked good!

The carpet in the dining area was a bit odd, almost like it was carpet for a bedroom but the sandwiches we got were good.

Benjamin Bernier

Yum! The Gobbler is like a Thanksgiving dinner in one sandwich. I love that just-stuff-my-face feeling I always have after having a tasty Big Top sub
