Sherman’s Deli is a Coachella Valley staple. “Sherman and his family moved to Palm Springs, California in 1953. His friend Al Laury needed help in his restaurant, Laury’s Steak Ranch. Sherman worked as a cook, Laury’s and there originated “early bird dinners” in 1954.

Twenty five years later, Sherman had 5 restaurants/delicatessens of his own in the Palm Springs area. His first deli was located in Palm Springs across from the Spa Hotel.
