Zack’s the ultimate neighborhood hang, and one that we turn to for all kinds of situations. Hoboken is the land of Italian delis that specialize in sandwiches and housemade mozzarella. This family-owned, old-school joint is also known for its house-made mozzarella, and is your spot in Hoboken for the perfect Italian hero.Two in particular stand out from the pack, the first being Fiore’s Deli - it's famous for its incredible mozzarella, but even more famous for its hot roast beef hero with mutz and gravy (take note: it's only available on Thursday and Saturday).
