Wagshal's

Straight from Washington DC, The President's Deli

In 1925, Sam Wagshal and his 13-year-old son, Ben, opened a family delicatessen on the corner of 9th and G St. just blocks away from the US Capitol. This family owned and operated delicatessen has become a DC monument of its own, satisfying constituents with artisanal breads baked daily in house, expertly butchered local meats and a hand cut prime brisket sandwich—DC’s most beautiful marbled landmark. With its location and reputation as one of the best old fashioned butcher shops in the area, Wagshal’s has served a number of Presidents from Truman to Ford, earning the nickname, “The President’s Deli.”

We're not the only ones who love them!

Wagshal's was featured in The Washington Post for its smoked brisket sandwich. The deli has been visited by Truman, Nixon, Ford, Eisenhower during their presidencies as well as several Supreme Court Justices and US Senators. Wagshal's even catered Nixon's birthday party while still serving as Vice President.
