Deke's Market & In Mah' Belly Deli | Santa Cruz

Deke's Market was in the news because it won the Slingshot to Success makeover grant. I stopped by last week to grab a sandwich from the In Mah' Belly Deli in the back. It may look a lot different the next time someone visits.

The photo of the "Johnnie's Special" on its FB page pulled me in. I had 'em hold the bacon and cheese, figuring that tri-tip, pastrami and avocado would be filling enough.

On a toasty french roll with all the garnishes, this was quite a sandwich for $7.99. Not the best deli sando I've run across, but good for the price. Deke's has pre-made po' boys for $5 in the fridge too for grab-and-go.

I also got a small tub of signature tuna salad, $4.50 for a cup out of the self-serve refrigerator. The tuna salad had a minimum of mayonnaise, sweet relish, garlic powder, and lime juice. Sweet pickle relish is not my favorite, but I could see the appeal.

When I paid at the cashier in front, I noticed the sign that free skewers for roasting marshmallows were supplied with s'more ingredient purchases. I've never seen that before, and when I asked the staffer, he said he hadn't either before working here.

Anyone else checked out this deli in a corner market?
