SAN ANTONIO – For over five generations customers have been visiting Zito's Deli. Those who stop by are treated to homemade Italian sandwiches.
With two locations in town, 8800 Broadway and 6007 Callaghan, Zito's has become a part of the San Antonio community.
The restaurant has been in business for 42 years.
"There wasn't really anything here in San Antonio like this," owner Brad Zito said.
The place was started by Zito's father and quickly became a favorite.
One of the most popular sandwiches on the menu is the Serious Sandwich.The sandwich filled with salami and two different kinds of ham was created by Zito's mother and sister.
"I can remember them working in my sister's kitchen coming up with the recipe," Zito said.
Another favorite but not very Italian are the beans. It was added by Zito's mother to showcase her Texas heritage.
Zito's is open Monday through Saturday. For more on their menu click here.
