So were the black beans and sweet potato fries. Everyone loved the Jewish Cubans. Order at the counter and the wait staff takes care of you from there.

Downtown deli with air-conditioning or outdoor cafe seating (dog-friendly!). The Cranberry Turkey sandwich was fantastic. I can't wait to get back to St. Pete to have another!

Lucky Dill is a good place for deli type sandwiches. Decor is nothing special and you can eat inside or outside. A little over priced for what you get.

I had a half a pastrami sandwich and an order of fries. It was fine, didn't knock my socks off or anything. It was probably my fault but I was kind of surprised it was served on a just toasted bread. I was expecting it to be on a roll of some sort. But... I probably could have ordered it... More

Stopped in for lunch and the place is alright. Food is served quickly and the portion size matches what you pay for.

My husband and I eat at Lucky Dill most mornings when we visit St. Pete. The breakfast is excellent and the staff is great. I like the relaxed atmosphere and decor. I am picky about how my eggs are cooked and they get it right every time!

Went there today because my kid is at ACH. Needed a break from hospital food. Should have eaten at the hospital. The sandwiches were so bad we could not even eat them. The roast beef had so much fat, and it didn't even taste like beef. The pastrami was like shoe leather. 23 dollars for the worst sandwiches I have... More
