Man, That Was Good!

Saw the sign which says "Voted Best Reuben in Florida" so stopped in. I believe it. Little bitty place with 15(?) seats. Small store front. Not fancy. But boy was the sandwich good! Big sandwich. Excellent corn beef & sauce. Very little sauerkraut. Will definitely stop again. But like I said, not... read more

They make a fantastic hot pastrami sandwich! I love the juicy overstuffed pastrami on rye sandwiches which used to be easily found in New York deli's. A friend tipped me about this little deli in the Gulf Gate area. It is really good, lot's of juice soaking into the rye. It comes with a long sliced pickle and either chips... More

We love the corned beef sandwiches here. The meat is very flavorful and tender and rye bread is very fresh. We have been here several times and have never been disappointed.

I've eaten here a few times now, most recently in September. These folks know their pastrami, and that's a rare thing to find outside of NYC. Sometimes I eat in, but I also have bought a pound of pastrami to take home. Good crust, perfect flavoring, the right amount of fat. The late hours are lovely for those on a... More

I don't know why people bother going to munchies and spending 30 bucks after a night of drinking when you could get BETTER QUALITY FOOD and things that taste AMAZING. I call it Gourmet drunk food! because you could eat the food drunk or sober! perfect for when you have to pick up some lunch for work.

If you love RUBEN sandwich then this is the ultimate. A tiny place with 4 or 5 tables in a slightly out of the way place but worth finding it. If you love it don't miss it!

...our sandwiches were so-so. The pastrami was flavorful, but nothing special, and somewhat tough to chew. The bread was right out of a bag; the bread was not grilled or heated as I'd expect for a "hot pastrami" sandwich. For us, not worth the trip.

Hot Pastrami or Corned Beef can be made on toast or grilled bread at no extra charge if you ask for it that way. But are normally made on regular bread of your choice Rye, White, Wheat, Marble, Roll or Hero. All from Giovanni's Bakery 299 Keene Rd. Largo Fl. 33771 727 536-2253. The bread is fresh baked sliced and... More

We've been coming here for years. It is by far the best Ruben sandwich in Sarasota and the best I've ever had. Rocky and his wife are always friendly and the food is no frills, just fantastic.
