Upon buying the business, the Tannous’ changed the name to Roxie Deli & Grocery. Just like the building’s history, the new name has a long history, with family ties. Chris’s parents, 6 brothers and 3 sisters opened Roxie Deli in San Francisco in the mid 70’s. Over the last 40 years they have established themselves as a cornerstone of their neighborhood and have been involved with, and supported, the community. Chris began working with his brothers when he was just 6 years old, standing on a milk crate to reach the counter. Now Chris & Amy’s children do the same at Roxie Sac! In 2009, Chris added a large BBQ Smoker outside, the addition of the BBQ has added many new favorites to the menu. Customers love the tri-tip, ribs and other specials…and everyone enjoys smelling the delicious scents drifting all around!
The neighborhood takes pride and ownership of Roxie Deli. There is a crowd of regulars who all know each other and value the “home” feel the deli offers. It is this community feeling that helps make the store what it is. Chris knows what many will order and begins making their sandwich before they walk into the door. With Chris’ passion for food, they’re always coming up with something delicious to make the deli even better. Chris & Amy run the deli with a wonderful staff. Roxie Deli offers breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as catering, and, also has a wide variety of hand-selected microbrews and craft sodas to pair with everyone’s favorite Roxie sandwiches.
Roxie Deli & Grocery isn’t just a sandwich spot, it’s an experience.
