(UPDATED 3/11/2022) Description and review of Roxie Deli & BBQ, a popular neighborhood deli located in East Sacramento at 34th and C Streets. NEW: See UPDATE below.
About Roxie Deli & BBQ
Roxie Deli & BBQ opened in May 2005, replacing the neighborhood Priceless Market. A large BBQ smoker was added in 2009.
Roxie serves breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. The menu includes a nice variety of breakfast sandwiches, specialty sandwiches and BBQ sandwiches. Roxie’s seems to do a good business – whenever I am there at least one or two people are in line regardless of the time of day. Around lunch time the line can get rather long (i.e. out the door).
Roxie is small and there is no inside dining – but there are some tables and chairs outside if you chose to dine on the premises. Many people do year round when the weather is cooperative.

Smoked chicken and meatloaf sandwiches are available every day. The BBQ meats available are: Tri-Tip (Monday); Pulled Pork (Tuesday); Ribs (Wednesday); and, Brisket (Thursday & Friday).
From time to time lunch time rolls around and I am just not in the mood for anything that I have in the house. When that happens I have been known to take a stroll to Roxie’s to pick up a “junior” size sandwich. It is certainly nice to have a deli in the neighborhood!
I have by no means tried all of Roxie’s sandwiches – but I have enjoyed the Roxie Special (mortadella, ham, salami, 2 cheeses, artichoke hearts and The Works) and the Roxie Veggie (hummus, avocado, artichoke hearts, marinated mushrooms, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles & peppers plus choice of cheese).
I also really like the meatloaf and brisket sandwiches. The daily BBQ specials come with mayo, horseradish, BBQ sauce, two cheeses, tomato, onion and jalapeno. You can, of course, have your sandwich made to suit your taste. I, for example, always take a pass on the jalapeno peppers.
Note: “The Works” is mayo, mustard, lettuce, tomato, pickles, Bermuda onions, jalapeno peppers and pepperoncini.
(3/11/2022) The Sacramento Bee recently conducted two rounds of voting to find out readers favorite sandwich spot. Over 2,500 votes were cast! Roxie Deli & BBQ came in #1 with 27% of the vote. That is quite the showing for what I have always considered a neighborhood deli!
