C4 Deli: The Cure for the Common

200 N. Broadway Santa Ana, CA 92701 | Santa Ana | 714-263-1555

Location Description:

C4 Deli is a deli in Santa Ana. It’s housed in a doozy of a room, with a soaring ceiling, Gatsby-esque Art Deco design motifs, exposed brick walls, and a window that stares directly at the equally beautiful Santora building across Broadway. Get the Reuben. The pastrami is sliced so thin you don’t eat this sandwich so much as you breathe it in. So soft and tender is the meat, it disintegrates in your mouth, melting into its characteristic saltiness. Hugging the pile of pinkness is marble rye, a bread moister than pound cake that sags under the weight of the filling. In the bulging belly of the sandwich, a slather of Russian dressing and Swiss cheese have fully ingratiated themselves to the meat and the ribbons of warmed sauerkraut, with the cabbage retaining its snap and overwhelming the senses until you hit the finish line of the bread’s crunchy crust.
