“My First True Deli”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

I have been eating what some consider deli food for years. But now I have a new bar that has been set for me. This was outstanding fare. I had a corn beef Reuben and I cannot tell you what my colleague had except that it included bow tie pasta. And potato pancakes. The menu was overwhelming with goodies. You need to come everyday for a year to sample it all.

“Impressive first visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

This deli-restaurant reminds me of a desert version of Katz's Deli in NYC. The Jewish Sliders we ordered were a bit dry but tasty, when dipped in the au jus on the side. The extensive menu had an awesome assortment of entrees and breakfast is available all day. The dining area is large enough for seating couples as well as large groups. The servers were attentive and the food was delivered in a timely manner. Overall it made for a good first impression.

Kosher-style delis are disappearing, but AZ is lucky to have a decent clone of a NY classic. Pickles!

“Huge portions, terrific deli food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

Chompie's has a large menu featuring many traditional Jewish delicacies. The soups and sandwiches are absolutely excellent, and you get more food than you should. ;-)

You can eat at Chompie's every day for a couple months and not try everything on the menu. Despite the broad offering, it's hard to find something that isn't good.

Chompie's breakfast - served all day - is excellent, too.

“Good NY Deli”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

If you're missing NY corned beef and hot pastrami, this is the place to come! They even have knishes that are almost authentic along with Dr. Brown's soda. All delicious. They have all the other usual deli sandwiches, all piled high and served with great cole slaw or potato salad. The smoked salmon and white fish are great, the pastries are wonderful, and everything is served with constantly replenished pickles. If you can't get to NY, go to Chompies.
