Have you ever had that moment where you got stopped completely in your tracks and think to yourself, “This sandwich is life changing”? Oddly enough this happened to us recently at Millburn Deli located in the heart of Millburn New Jersey.
Starting in 1946, The Millburn Deli has helped gain a public notice with their classic yet fun approach to their food. Owner Andrew Morgan has helped make the deli what it is known for today. From the tacky yet hilarious wall decor, to their delicious sandwiches, all the way to the positive and enthusiastic team morale.
As you walk into the long countered deli you are greeted with the glow of packed faces that are ready to get their lunch, a lunch in which they’ve been day dreaming all day about. You then notice the nostalgic trip from the ticket machine reading, “take a number”. When you look down the line of options, one may think they’re in heaven. With creations ranging from toasted “Jay Ray” (chicken cutlet, bacon, cheddar cheese, BBQ sauce and chipotle ranch)- to their famous take on “Sloppy Joe’s”, I’m positive you won’t be disappointed. Since it was our first visit, we asked the gentleman on the counter what he recommends. He smiled at us and told us their most popular sandwiches, (which we obviously HAD to try!).
One of their most popular options includes fried chicken cutlets, smokey bacon and fresh mozzarella all melty and toasted together on a Russian sub roll.
You won’t wanna wait for thanksgiving for this one. Roasted turkey, lettuce, mayo, black pepper are piled under homemade stuffing and cranberry relish. Stacked on toasted Rye bread.
Ham Sloppy Joe
Ok people come here for this. Their meaning of “Sloppy Joe’s” means piled HIGH with sweet and tangy coleslaw. Options range from smoked/slow roasted ham, turkey and much more!
This place is 100% worth taking a lunch date trip to. The options and flavors are out of this world. We could talk more about it, but it’s better to try yourself!
We’re gonna be honest, the deli gets packed. So if you are running late on your lunch order, don’t worry! The team succeeds in the factor of fast, well executed sandwiches that are available through DELIVERY or DOORDASH!
