Deli & Kitchen

It’s all Made Right Here in our kitchens.

When it comes to so many of the prepared food you love at DLM, rest assured that it’s Made Right Here by the wonderful people in our kitchens at each store. By making the food we sell in our own kitchens at each store, this enables us to taste our food every day and constantly assess it, talk about it, and sell it with pride and passion.

  • We use local free-range eggs for our egg salad, which are boiled and cracked by hand.
  • We make our soups entirely from scratch, including making the stock (see what soups we’re serving up today).
  • We create custom sandwiches to order and serve them up hot out of our new, high-heat convection ovens with chips and pickle chips for lunch and dinner (view the complete menu).
  • We hand pull the meat off the chickens to make our chicken pot pie.

You get the idea—we simply love making good food! So, even when you don’t have the time to cook at home, you can still feed your family well from the DLM Deli & Kitchen.

We use the same great ingredients that you buy for your own home, such as DLM Fresh Free-Range, Air-Chilled Chicken and local produce that is in season. Our recipes are developed and tested by our very talented DLM Culinary Director, Chef Carrie Walters. Our cooks are very hard-working people who take pride in making delicious, healthy food with no shortcuts.


Elevate your sandwich experience.

Using our artisan bread that’s baked fresh daily, high quality meats and cheeses, and fresh toppings, many sourced right from our store, we’re able to create a true food experience.

We’ve brought in some new high-heat convection ovens that perfectly toast our artisan bread, heat the proteins to just the right temperature, and melt the cheese to a swoon-worthy bubbly brownness. Cooking the sandwich without smashing the bread or ingredients, these ovens allow us to create sandwich masterpieces.

We’re excited to not only showcase these new ovens, but our revamped Famous Deli Sandwiches menu! You’ll still find bestsellers like the Philly, Club, and Reuben, but also some new sandwiches and ways to customize a sandwich to your liking. If your favorite sandwich didn’t make it to the new menu, just ask for it by name and we’ll be happy to craft it for you!

The DLM Deli has garnered quite a reputation.

Just look at the case and your eyes will dance as they soak in the variety of deli salads, made from scratch here at DLM, like our ever-popular Pine Club Salad. Our Deli also is known for carrying the best lunch meats—all natural, no preservatives. For our selection of DLM All-Natural Turkey, we’ve partnered with New Carlisle-based Bowman & Landes Turkey Farm. DLM Uncured Ham is made with duBreton Natural Pork—no nitrates, nitrites added. We also roast our own DLM All-Natural Roast Beef. In addition we also carry Boar’s Head meats and cheeses. It’s these same quality ingredients that we use when crafting our Famous Deli Sandwiches (menu).

The famous pizza of Naples, Italy is made by artisans who use simple, local ingredients and bake in hearth ovens.

In the same manner, we make the dough from scratch, add our own handmade ingredients, and bake the pizza for you on the hot hearth of our special Naples-style oven. The result is an amazing pizza in the style of Naples that has the signature airy crust with a charred exterior and chewy interior, and each bite containing just the right ratio of toppings.
