The deli and meat department at H-E-B Plus has been named Best of the Best by Advocate readers.
"We are a destination for customers looking for quality products," said Joe Farias, the Food Store Manager at H-E-B Plus "We also have some unique items that you aren't going to find anywhere else except our store."
Farias said he is also proud of the store's pricing as it compares to its competitors.
"Quality products at an affordable price - that's what you'll find at H-E-B Plus" he said.
The deli prepares popular trays for parties and other gatherings, including fresh vegetables and fruit, meats and cheeses and sandwiches.
Another outstanding feature of the store's deli is its selection of speciality cheeses that can't be found anywhere else in the area.
