Try the Rib Eye Sandwich!

I had read other reviews touting the rib eye sandwich at this deli, and they were right! My husband and I stopped by to grab some sandwiches to go to a picnic, and instead of trying two different options, neither of us could get away from the rib eye. It was sliced/chopped on a fresh bun, served... read more

We have stopped at Mr. P's on the way to Florida for three years. It is such a great alternative to fast food (although it's pretty fast!) and breaks up the trip nicely. It's easy to find and not far off the interstate so it is perfect for us. Every sandwich I've had, as well as what the rest of... More

We found Mr P's on Trip Advisor while driving from Atlanta to Memphis. We were looking for a place to eat that was not fast food. The front of the store is a small grocery store with the deli and butcher counter in the back. There is a huge selection of sandwiches. The meat was delicious. There is a small... More

Recently voted the best deli in Birmingham, so the secret is now out. Residents in Bluff Park, like myself, frequent this treasure for its fresh and creative sub sandwiches (two pages of options using only freshly sliced meats) and for its butcher shop. The steaks are so good (with Mr. P's housemade marinate/seasoning) on our own grill, that we rarely,... More

Not sure about the whole sandwich meal side of things. We went in to get the monthly meal deal. Comes in a couple different varieties. One thing is for sure, if you don't have a deep freeze, it won't fit in your home with just the normal meal deal. Maybe the little one. Everything was top notch, the service was... More

My Brother and our wives were in here yesterday for lunch, no issue getting seated. You order from the counter and then sit & your meal is delivered to your table by number. My wife and I had a Reuben and also tried the Banana Pudding. Both were great, almost more sandwich than you could handle at one sitting. Prices... More

After hearing people rave about this place, I finally decided to try it. I just found it ok. The meats were very good, but the rest was just ok. The bread was just regular boring bread, almost on the sweet side, and I think the bread is what makes the sandwich. The servings were big and the value was pretty... More

From the outside it looks like an old country store, when you open the door you smell seasoning! Great! The list of different sandwiches are a lot with a great selection. The Tide and Tiger are good or the Goldenburg or the Fantastic Fred's. If you buy meats there, be sure to let them season them.

There is no better butcher anywhere in the state of Alabama. The filets dry-rubbed with Mr. P's seasoning is better than any restaurant at which we've ever eaten.

Butcher and sandwich restaurant in one. Order at the counter. Sandwich meat is fresh and bread is also fresh. Great lunch spot. Keep meaning to order for the butcher shop. Great marinade and good wine selection.
