Very casual deli. This place has been around a while. Giant selection of beers. Great sandwich selection, unique recipe combs for sandwiches. Definitely not the same old thing. You want a pedestrian sandwich, go to Firehouse or Subway. You want an original, eat at the diplomat. And the service is quick too.

Great Sandwich Shop. I've been coming here for years. At one time it was the largest selection of beers in Birmingham. Can't go wrong with any selection. Gets really busy during the week for lunch.

My first time there, even though it's been in business since 1982! Sat outside and had very good and friendly service. My Hot Manhatten, pastrami on rye, was very good, and the brown ale was, too. My two friends also enjoyed theirs, and had two beers each!

If you want a sandwich 3 inches thick with meat, this is the place. Rubins are great. Double Deli is great. Chicken Salad is Great. Muffelleta is great. Chile is great in the winter. Beer Selection is great. You can't go wrong here if you want a sandwich and a beer.

My friend and I stumbled upon this wonderful place while looking for a book store. We were very impressed with the food. The pastrami sandwich was out of this world. No fat like other sandwiches I've eaten before. The egg salad was very good too. The service was great. Wendy was so friendly and helpful checking us out. I can... More

Diplomat has the best deviled eggs in Bham. Plus, yummy sandwiches and unique sodas (Dr. Brown's black cherry for example) I have been eating here for years and it is always reliable and delicious. Don't forget to order a piece of homemade lemon pie. It's one of my favorite menu items.

I have been going here since I was a little girl. My grandfather used to take me and now I go every couple weeks with my husband. The service is great. They have a very friendly staff.
