signature items

The most famous sandwich is, without a doubt, the Momma’s Love. It is a tasty combination of roast beef, ham, smoked turkey, muenster cheese, lettuce, tomato, mustard, mayo, and Momma’s Sauce on a steamed, seeded bun. Don spent many hours perfecting the signature sandwich, and as a result, the Momma’s Love accounts for approximately 45 percent of all sandwich sales.

Another popular specialty item is the one-of-a-kind Nachos. The recipe for this item was created by two Auburn University students who worked at the original Momma Goldberg’s Deli. The young men’s creation included Doritos topped with Pepper Jack cheese which they preceded to steam. At first the students only served their new recipe to friends who frequented the restaurant. Once the word got out, however, a “nacho craze” began. Momma’s Nachos became so popular that Don decided to make them a mainstay on the menu.
