In 1989, American Deli launched its first store in Atlanta’s South DeKalb Mall. The classic American menu—featuring items such as Buffalo wings with bleu cheese, New York-style Reuben sandwiches and golden chicken fingers—and casual dining atmosphere quickly attracted a loyal following. Now, two decades later, there are over 60 American Deli locations throughout the Southeast.
