Mickey’s Italian Delicatessen & Liquor Store
101 Hermosa Ave
Hermosa Beach, CA 90254
Since 1953, to this very day, Mickey’s Italian Delicatessen & Liquor Store -- but you can just call it Mickey’s Deli -- is serving up its Famous Sauce Sandwich for $1.50. The sandwich is… basically a meatball sub without the meatballs, or a pizza but on a sandwich: it’s bread (warmed, of course) spread with house-made tomato sauce, and the cheese is optional. It’s only $1.50, what did you expect? You can also get other sandwiches that are equally as popular, but not $1.50, as well as pizza, pasta, and calzones. And that liquor store is really a mini-market located just around the corner, selling everything from imported Italian goods and fresh produce to beer, liquor, and lottery tickets.
