Wright's Gourmet House has been a staple of South Tampa for decades. The food is fantastic. I have never experienced a bad meal. They are also great for catering. Wright's cares about serving quality food with quality service. I recommend any sandwich involving roast beef and definitely try a slab of red velvet cake for desert!

Widely variable menu, never had anything we didn't love. Cakes are pricey but huge! Perfect for office luncheons, birthdays and meetings. Breakfast sandwiches on Cuban bread are amazing as well. Seating is crowded - we typically order and take it out. some seating outside - nice when the weather is cooler but still limited.

There's a reason why there's a decent sized line most days at lunch time, it's the best lunch sandwich in town easily. I like the Paris but the standard beef martini is my usual and can't be beat. Slow marinated beef and mushrooms and bacon to the bread all good. They have great cakes and cupcakes also if your trying... More

Wright's Gourmet Deli is the epicenter of indulgence for anyone who loves good food. Soups, salads and sandwiches are prepared with top quality ingredients and with loving pride by attentive servers. Desserts are absolutely excessive in a good way.

Wrights is a Tampa tradition for EXCELLENT sandwich's and deserts for over 50+ years. I have been coming here since 1990 myself and have NEVER been disappointed~ I love their roast beef martini and a slice of yummy Coconut cake~ YUMMY~ If you want the BEST sandwich in town then Wrights is the "Wright" place for you~

been going here for years, the salads and sandwiches never disappoint. Their pumpernickel bread is delicious. Lunchtime can get pretty busy so plan accordingly. DO NOT SKIP DESSERT. Their chocolate cake is amazing, seriously. So rich and the slices are very large, so good for sharing :)

Need a great sandwich with something extra, like a smear of chutney on your roast pork or a great Cuban? Here is the place. My grown kids act like little children went the come home and find a Wright's cake or cupcakes in the fridge. I get happy as well. Bring one of their justly famous lemon cakes to my... More

They may serve breakfast but no one knows it. This is a great lunch spot with a creative menu. Go for the pressed sandwiches although they take more time. THey are worth is. Staff is well trained. Seating is outside as well. Monte Cristo is outstanding.

The sandwiches are good, but the cakes are THE BEST! We always get a Wright's cake for every birthday celebration.
