Love the Corned Beef

I stop in here for lunch occasionally and love the hot corned beef with cole slaw and Russian dressing on toasted rye sandwich. Haven't tried other menu items, but it always seems busy at lunchtime so it probably has a lot of other good items to try. Service is quick and efficient.

I have been coming here off and on for many years. Nice owner who cares. Great breakfast food and good sandwiches. I will be back again and again.

Hidden in a medical plaza. This place does a business, though, so I guess the secret's out - we had to wait to get one of the few tables. Ordered the Big Ben Club and I can see this deli being a saving grace for anyone in the area needing a lighter lunch option, but I don't know that I'd... More

On days that I am in the area but don't have time, I hate to pass up Charter Deli's sandwiches. The sandwiches are generous, very tasty and you can stay at the small tables or take out. Nothing fancy, good food, good service on a minimal scale, simple drink, etc. items. This is the sandwich shop you always wanted to... More

Because of the way signage is handled in our little toewn, it is possible to not even know this gem exists. It is on Charter Drive, just off Hickory Ridge Road near the newest medical offices and back entrance to the Howard County General Hospital. Look to the right - first building after you get off Hickory Ridge Road and... More

I went to Charter Deli for the first time today. The staff was friendly and very helpful. I ordered the half sandwich (turkey Ruben) and salad. The Ruben was probably the best I've ever had. The bread was nicely toasted (not too hard and dry), the ratio of meat to kraut to dressing was just right. It was so good... More

Went first time today and now will be going often. One of the best sandwich I have had in long time. Freshest and real meat piled high, real,high. Place is spotless and very friendly staff. The menu has many choices, very hard to decide which one, so I will just keep going to try each one. One of us has... More

This Deli is a favorite of ours. They are pleasant, very efficient, busy and best of all, serve high quality food. We love the pastrami, Ruben and BLT (different from others). Some delis serve very fatty meats--not here. The owner always recognizes all his regular customers. It's just 5-7 minutes from the Mall by car. We're never in the area... More

It's good, clean, and the owner is friendly and has decades of experience. Coffee and breakfast are great.

Lunch lines are handled efficiently in this little deli in one of Columbia's medical office buildings near the hospital and community college. Good sandwiches with reasonable quantity of fillings at equally reasonable prices, and a wide variety makes these your best choices. Salad platters are standard and good if, as the menu says, you want to 'lose the bread."
