Saw Chompies featured on Man vs Food and had to try it. Just like Adam, we had the Jewish sliders, but the three sandwich portion, not Adam's twelve sliders. They were fantastic! Beef brisket with Jack cheese on mini challah rolls, with a side of tasty gravy. We opted for the onion straws. They were the right choice; light and... More

Enjoyable mix of music, proper number of plasma TVs tuned to sports, large varied menu, lots of fresh deli items, lively crowd but not too noisy. A good choice.

Cute restaurant with the best BBQ Pork Sandwiches and cold slaw. Excellent proportions, In fact, the large portions were enough to take home for dinner.

You won't be disappointed is you are looking for great deli food with a great bakery as well. Take a pastry with you for... More

We came for lunch and Chompies delivered large and delicious sandwhiches. The complimentary pickles were varied and good. The menu is expansive with something for everyone. The seevice was excellent I think I will have to come back and check out the breakfast menu.

This is a review for the Chompies on Shea. Sunday breakfast. Crowded but seated right away. The service is casual but prompt and friendly. The coffee was accompanied by a delicious piece of almond coffee cake. The orders included the Popeye omelet, scrambled eggs and bacon with dry toast and corned beef hash with two eggs over easy. It took... More

Chompies is a nice family sized deli restaurant(ASU-Tempe). We were greeted with 2 nice hostesses; college students... Mind you, this is our first time here. One hostess took us to a table, I asked for a booth. She quickly turned and said to me, "Next time ask where you want to be seated". Hmmmm!!! That's not too polite. Well anyways,... More

The first thing you notice when you go into Chompie's is that you are struck by choices. We were first drawn to Chompie's by an episode from the Travel Channel and couldn't wait to see it for ourselves. The bakery has a superb amount of choices and the random assorted treats will definitely catch your attention. Since the restaurant was... More

Authentic New York style food with great Arizona service! I grew up in Brooklyn and have been in Arizona for 30 years. If I had any idea how good Compies was, I would have visited long ago. This place is legit! Wishing we had a branch closer to my Tucson home. Chompies take note...Tucson needs you!
