Hoff Does Deli -- With a Script or Divorce Papers?

Sloppy eater David Hasselhoff grabbed a working lunch at Jerry's Deli yesterday ... but it was unclear if his meeting was for a role -- or for working on his messy custody battle.

TMZ caught up with The Hoff in the middle of a serious conversation with someone that looks like a director -- or a lawyer -- in the parking lot of the popular Studio City hangout. Try the brisket!

One thing is certain: The Hoff is looking pretty good since winning custody of his two daughters.
