Like if you had to pick between a deli and a stand with no other information available, go with the deli every time. I've never had a bad deli IB and there have been some great ones - like Bari.

    I wouldn’t say better but different.

    A deli beef will be fresher, slightly pink that might carry through to the sandwich, maybe freshly sliced...

    ... whereas a Italian Beef from a stand won’t have that pink color but will be tender, delicious. A time tested preparation refined over the years and what we have come to know and love.

    Both are great! Top of their class in their respective styles.

    I know a guy who doesn't care for any of the deli beefs over the stands. I've kind of saved many of the famous deli beefs for later on my beef sandwich journey. I've had Frangella and Freddy's Pizza which were both excellent beef sandwiches (both bigger than most stands). When the COVID thing is over I am going to finally have Bari, Notolli, Riviera, and Serrelli's and any other that I missed.
