Signature Sandwiches at Bocca Deli

1 of 30
Where Bocca Deli succeeds for now is by being forward-thinking enough to offer its creature comforts to the so-called urban pioneers moving into and renovating older Northside homes, but never excluding the people who've lived there for years. What you'll find in its modern and airy dining room is a very North Houston slice of life: Hispanic couples with kids in tow, delivery drivers on break, young white folks who are drawn to the affordable housing and area charm, blue collar and white collar workers eating side by side, all of them enjoying Bocca Deli's signature sandwiches.
