That's because Stalzy's Deli was just named Wisconsin's best sandwich shop by Love Food.

Local favoriteStalzy's Deli is one for home comforts, with an emphasis on Wisconsin produce in generous proportions. Its Triple Deckers, lofty towers of bread and meat, are said to be only "for the brave": they feature everything from roast beef to sweet and sour slaw. Those after a quick bite will be sated by the tuna salad on house-baked light rye – or Stalzy’s Brat, in a pleasingly salty pretzel bun, is another foolproof choice.
