Sometimes you just need ice cream to cool down, or as a quick snack while you’re playing on the beach. You can’t go wrong with the Flip Flop Deli Shop. This little beach shack serves up sandwiches, pizza, hot dogs, nachos and ice cream with a smile; look for the flags flying high on the front porch and the colorful flip flops surrounding the front door.
The Fare at Flip Flop Deli Shop in Gulf Shores
This is beach food at its best. They have something for everyone too. Small sandwiches – perfect for kids – include the Mini Iowa Hawkeye (turkey & American cheese on white). They have several hot dogs, nachos and 16” pizza options too.
Need a little football-themed fix? Order the War Eagle Wrap (shaved grilled chicken, bacon & provolone on a wheat wrap), the Roll Tide Wrap (turkey & provolone on a wheat wrap) or the Pig Sooie (ham & American cheese on a hoagie).
Other sandwich options include the Dorito Borrito (taco meat, cheese, lettuce, salsa, sour cream and Doritos in a wrap), or a customer favorite, the Mama Mia—an Italian sub that can be served hot or cold. Try their famous West Beach Walking Taco, a bag of Doritos crunched up with taco meat, shredded cheese, lettuce, salsa, and sour cream. Perfect for lunch on the go, eat it out of the bag as you stroll along the beach!
For that much needed cooldown, Flip Flop Deli Shop in Gulf Shores serves ice cream, milkshakes and shaved ice. Order The Boyfriend – a single scoop of ice cream with strawberry shaved ice and cream – for a cooldown that’s slightly off-beat.
If you need a coffee fix, you’re covered too. Their coffee is roasted locally at Fairhope Roasting Company, and the lattes come in several flavors. They also have Gatorade, juice boxes, and fountain drinks.
Come as you are because this is a laid-back, kid-friendly place. Limited seating is available on the front porch and inside, or on the picnic tables out front. And for those of you too tired to walk in, they now offer delivery. They’re open daily and hours vary seasonally, so check the Flip Flop Deli Shop Facebook page for up-to-date information or give them a call at 251-450-2188. They’re located at 524 West Beach Boulevard, not far off the beach.
Flip Flop Deli Shop in Gulf Shores is perfect for that quick lunch or a cool snack while you’re out frolicking on the beach.
