I made a point of eating here every time we came to Tempe. I never had a bad meal. They have a typical huge NY Jewish Deli type menu and bakery. We ate there twice on this trip. First time I had the 1/2 sandwich and soup and the next time I had the triple decker Pastrami, Corned Beef and... More

Chompies has a good reputation and we decided to visit the place fo lunch with some friends from New York. The food is average to good and their menu has several choices. I think they should clean it up a little and make it less busy. The service is good and mostly provided by students. They sell pastries, bagels, cold... More

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.

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
