Our Indianola Deli & Bakery

Our Story

Funaro’s Deli is located on the northwest corner of Indianola’s downtown square. It was founded in 1996 by Greg and Sondra Funaro. In January of 2016, Bryant and Rose (Funaro) Houston started their own adventure purchasing the deli keeping the restaurant in the family.

Over the last 23 years Funaro’s has established itself in the community by always serving those in the community. Quality food with friendly service is something we strive for every day. We are always there to greet you on the way in and thank you on the way out. Many of the customers become friends and we know what they want as they come in the door. Funaro’s product, service, and atmosphere have really helped build what we have today. When it comes to the quality of food we certainly don’t take shortcuts. We cook several of our meats in house: turkey, roast beef, Italian beef, bacon, pork, chicken. Our deli meats, cheeses and veggies are sliced every morning. We offer a selection of fresh salads, homemade sides, daily soup options and made from scratch cookies. Every morning we bake homemade hoagie buns for lunch and an assortment of cinnamon rolls and pastries for the morning coffee drinkers. With all that going on everyday it really creates a unique atmosphere for the customers. Funaro’s is one big open restaurant with little separation from the kitchen to the dining area. So, all day we socialize with customers while we prepare the food. All these things are what set us apart over the years from other chains and restaurants and keep customers coming in. Our mission is to better customers’ days, serving quality food, with excellent service in a unique atmosphere.
