We advertise real homestyle cooking

And Really We Mean It! 

Our oversized, abundant menu is filled with New York-style Delicatessen favorites like Matzo Ball Soup, Potato Pancakes, Lox, Cheese Blintzes, Borscht, Bread Pudding, Chopped Liver, Potato Knishes… Oy vey!

We opened our restaurant in January of 1980 with the purpose of serving San Diego’s starved deli-lovers. Now after many years of successful business, we haven’t changed our commitment to serving wholesome, high quality, specialty foods.

We have expanded our restaurant five times since 1980 to accommodate the overwhelming demand for good hearty deli food. We open at 7a.m. every day of the week for Breakfast, Lunch And Dinner. Three-dozen Breakfast selections such as Corned Beef Hash, Vegetarian Omelets or Belgian Waffles smothered in Spicy Apples and Whipped Cream are available all day long. Anytime you have the urge to enjoy New York-Style Deli, exotic Desserts or just plenty of good food, D.Z. Akin’s is the place to be.
