Riverfront Times' Description

The New York deli experience is waiting for you at the corner of DeMun Avenue and Clayton Road. Giant, meaty, overstuffed sandwiches (the pastrami!) are the foundation of any deli worth its salt, and Carl's does not disappoint. There are no frills once you're inside, and you're likely to encounter a diverse clientele from all walks of life sitting around sharing a table. If a heap of thinly sliced meat is not your forte, try the egg salad, or maybe even the Provel sandwich -- there is a vegetarian menu. That being said, it'd be difficult to go and pass on that famed pastrami. Carl's has been around for more than 60 years with no signs of slowing down, so take advantage of the opportunity to visit this staple of the St. Louis deli scene.

    The best pastrami in St. Louis! Get it on an onion roll since the rye can barely stand up to the 8 ounces of meat. Or, just get a fork and forget a side, you won't have room.

    Try the pastrami on rye. Single greatest sandwich I have ever eaten.

    RFT 2012 Best of St. Louis Winner - Best Delicatessen- A 1950’s throwback sandwich shop, a gathering place that is reminiscent of a Norman Rockwell illustration! http://bit.ly/UJBv9j
