Speaking of Broadway Deli, how is the food? I haven't been there yet but would like to try it sometime.
Mr AnonyMouse gave the first review I was aware of and, based on it, we checked it out.

The key for me was that they served Boar's Head brand.
I love that stuff.

I have no complaints. The sandwiches were well prepared, and of Baby Bear size (not too big, not too small, just right.)
DH had a Reuben-- he'd never eaten one before, so we can't say if it was standard, but it was good.
I had a special of the day that involved roasted ham and The Boy did one of the 'Create Your Owns' and gobbled it up.
We also ordered a little dish of potato salad to share and it didn't offend my senses.

We passed on the 'Dessert of the Day' but it was an attractive looking chocolate peanut butter cake.

I cannot say it was a 'true' Deli, but I'll go again.

Excellent - the two Greek ladies running it are actually trying to do something different it seems.

Not that Boar's Head deli meat is different... anywhere other than here. They saw a niche and filled it, quality sandwiches with quality ingredients. They're not huge by any means, but they're very tasty and I've heard good things about their soups too.

Anonymouse brought up the valid complaint that, when you walk in, you kind of just stand there looking like a moron trying to figure out what to do... do you order at the counter or sit at a table?? Well, you sit at a table if you're not getting a to-go order so keep that in mind, they will bring you menus.

They're still a far cry from the huge corned beef on toasted rye sandwiches I miss so dearly - but at least they have more than just hot open faced turkey and Salisbury steak.

Sounds like my kind of place. I like reubens but for some reason it is hard to find a good one around here (I would say the best I have had so far is AJ's Deli). Thanks for the info.

I've had their Reuben and it's one of the best you can get around here - which makes it a fair representation. The best reuben's have house-made 1000 Island (or Russian) dressing - theirs isn't but that's ok, it's still pretty good.

I actually like the Chelsea, which is great if you like roast beef and horseradish - which is one of my favorite sandwich combos. It's londonport roast beef too, which is basically the filet mignon of roast beef if you ask me - I almost cried when Giant stopped carrying it (It was worth $12/lb damnit!). Plus it's on an onion roll too which gets two thumbs up from me.

Meh, I was just being snarky. I was in Panera Bread this morning. The guy in front of me ordered a "Bacon, Egg & Cheese" sandwich "without cheese." They accommodated him.

Let me tell you though, Panera Bread is literally the ONLY place in the county where you can get a bagel. Yes, you can get bagels elsewhere, but they're not bagels. They're lumps of bread formed into a bagel shape and then sodomized by some sort of anti-bagel-making process.

Why don't you just eat at home. It is cheaper and you know who is preparing the food. Not some flunky pothead dropout with 25 tats and piercings galore. The economy is tough and no one seems to have any money and yet the lines at the restaurants are still long and the parking lots full. Do you people realize how much money you are spending for atmosphere by eating out all the time?
