D.Z. Akin's Deli

D.Z. Akin’s is a Restaurant, Deli, Bakery and Fountain in one, serving a full menu of New York-style Deli fare boasting more than 130 sandwich options, piled high with Deli Meats, and an entire page of Fountain options with Sundaes, Shakes, Malts and Sodas. Our unique offerings, such as the Prenatal Silliness sundae, featuring Chocolate Ice Cream and Pickles, is just one reason customers keep coming back.

Debi and Zvika Akin put the “D” and “Z” in its name, opening the family business 38 years ago to share their love of big-city delis with locals. Now a San Diego institution, D.Z. Akin’s freshness, value and stellar reputation are well-loved, and it has won multiple awards for Best Deli, Bakery, Breakfast and Ethnic Restaurant. For a snack or a feast, visit D.Z.
