For subs and salads with the best quality ingredients at a price that will not break the bank, Cricket’s Deli in Mayo, Florida is the spot to treat yourself. With a display case fully stocked with Boar’s Head meats, arguably the best deli meats out there period, Cricket’s knows how to satiate any appetite.

The Firehouse sub is a must-try for any first visitor, loaded tall with Cajun turkey, pastrami, capicola, pepper jack cheese, and hot peppers with fresh special seasonings. The mix of heat and savory in each bite is unbelievably good, and that is just before one adds the additional toppings.

Every sub and salad comes customized per order, with the toppings of lettuce, onion, bell peppers, banana peppers, sweet peppers, jalapenos, tomatoes, black olives, mayo, yellow mustard, oregano, vinegar, spicy mustard, salt and pepper, and oil available at no extra charge, with cucumbers, croutons, and egg also available for salads.

Another amazing sub is the namesake Cricket’s Way, featuring salami, pastrami, capicola, pepperoni, provolone, house seasoning, and a dash of oregano for a zesty deli delight. Likewise, the Harley Girl sub offers up delectable prosciutto, capicola, ham, Swiss cheese, and house seasoning for a mouth-watering combination of epic flavors.

For salad-lovers, the chicken Caesar is an excellent take on the classic icon, featuring romaine lettuce, grilled chicken, parmesan cheese, fresh Caesar dressing, and house seasoning. The same goes for the Greek salad, which comes with kalamata olives, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, peppers, feta cheese, oregano, and house seasoning for a masterfully crafted helping of Greek cuisine. No matter the craving, Cricket’s has one covered.
