True enough, outside of those five groups, a few other representative food options do exist, but there's really nothing else that’s in large numbers or is done that well; BBQ and Mexican being prime examples.
This place is a real gem, they have friendly counter help and delicious food in an old time deli setting.
Oh sure, there are dozens of Italian deli sandwich or “grinder” shops all over town, but who’s going in there looking for a great Jewish pastrami on rye in there? No, This is the place for that, and while the corned beef was fair to decent, it was the pastrami that really stole the show. The nice thin strips of peppery flavored pastrami had a great texture that balanced just enough fat to lean and tasted wonderful. If you go, I highly recommend trying the pastrami. Snappy fresh deli pickles on the side of the sandwich topped off the serving.
I also got a side of the potato salad, which had an unusual carbonated feel in the mouth, almost like there was tonic or seltzer in the recipe. It was good, but only in moderation.
One other thing jumped out at me while I was there where the prices. They seemed pretty darn inexpensive, in fact, I'd consider them to be a great value overall. Even though the sandwiches weren't huge, they weren’t skimpy either, and they only ran about $5 apiece.
And while I still no clue where to go to get a real quality NY Style Bagel, I think I have somewhere I can get a Jewish deli meat “fix” while I’m visiting out here. And as far as I can tell, since it’s the only Jewish deli game in town, (luckily it’s a pretty good one at that) I’ll definitely be back.
