Koch’s Deli has been handing out sample deli meats in long lines since Ronald Reagan was just a California governor hopeful. It’s easily the best place in University City to get a sandwich, especially if you like meat. They’ll pile up to four different types of thinly-cut meats in between fluffy Italian rolls, resulting in a sandwich so thick you’ll momentarily wish you could unhinge your jaw like a snake. And, if somehow you’re still hungry, you should get one of their thick, creamy vanilla milkshakes to finish off your meal.
