Where your pleasure is our priority!

The first Akel’s Delicatessen opened in Merrick, New York in 1973 by three brothers (Ishak, Sami, And Marwan) who came to America with a dream to have a family restaurant. As the years past, the brother’s moved south and opened their first Jacksonville location in 1988. Today, sons and daughters along with extended family have continued with the “Akel Tradition” of quality food and great service.

Our Menu is designed for you to substitute or add additional items to make a unique sandwich, sub or wrap that you would enjoy. So come in and be creative, or just have one of our specialty sandwiches that is sure to knock your socks off! We’re pretty sure it will be to your satisfaction.

All of us at Akel’s Delicatessen would like to extend our sincere thanks to our loyal customers and new ones to come! So, please come visit us at our downtown, riverside, and southside locations.

Akel's Deli Caters!
