Joe’s Famous Deli
TripAdvisor Rating: 4.0
Address: 288 Bridge St. Vail
Don’t let anybody tell you that ice cream is only for the summer months. Joe’s famous deli is a great place to grab a quick sandwich or some ice cream. The hours and location near Vail Mountain make this a viable option for breakfast, lunch, or a light dinner.
The atmosphere is very relaxed and kid-friendly, making it a perfect place for the whole family. Joe’s focuses on homemade sandwiches using high-quality ingredients, so the food is delicious and filling. They also make their own ice cream in house, including some flavors not seen elsewhere. Joe’s is an excellent place to take the family for lunch, especially if your budget is limited.
What They’re Known for: Joe’s has been a favorite of locals and tourists for more than a decade. Guests say that their ice cream is among the best ever tasted and as such, Joe’s has been awarded the “Best Ice Cream in Vail” award. Their sandwiches are made with premium meat and other ingredients, which has also netted them the “Best Deli in Vail” award.
What to Watch for: Joe’s can be a little hard to find, since it’s in the basement of a residential complex. They are right next to Crazy Shirts, which should help you find it. Visitors do have to go down a flight of stairs, so those with disabilities might want to ask a family member to bring food to them.
