Posted: Updated:

The Food Network has come out with its list of the 51 Best Delis in the Country, and a deli from South Orange made the list.

According to the food network, Town Hall Deli at 74 1st St. was recognized as the best in New Jersey for its iconic Sloppy Joe.

The deli is credited with creating the sandwich back in 1935.

The sandwich is stacked with layers of two different meats, Swiss cheese, coleslaw and homemade Russian dressing, between two slices of specially baked Pullman rye bread.

The deli claims to be the first restaurant in New Jersey to make this version of the Sloppy Joe.
