“Fast, flavorful, friendly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

First visit today. Ordered "The Sicilian" sandwich and a cup of coffee. Enjoyed both at a cafe table on the sidewalk in front of the deli. The sandwich was outstanding thanks to a delicious spread that gave it a spicy "punch." The pickle was crunchy and flavorful; the coffee fresh and robust. Staff was genuinely friendly and welcomed me with a smile. The deli, located in a strip mall, manages fast service without losing the easy-going atmosphere that makes me want to return next time I'm in the area.

“Great for all but really good news for East Coast Transplants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

You do not live in NJ, NY, CT area without a regular visit to the local deli and now Sarasota has a deli worthy of the name. While there are daily specials and a good selection of sandwiches--Cuban, El Paso, Sicilian--my favorites are The New Yorker (hot pastrami and corned beef on rye) and The Dagwood. The people who run this place are very nice and after a few stops you will be acknowledged as a regular. Also available are large salads and fresh soup. Call ahead for pick up. Try once and you will be back.

“Very good neighborhood deli”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Since the Corkscrew isn't far from home we usually phone in a to go order. My wife likes their Reubens and the Cuban is good,but don't be afraid to try some of their other combinations as well. They generally have a daily sandwich special(the $3.99 Cuban special on Saturday can't be beat). The owner and a couple of guys run the place so the quality is always there. For Sarasota the prices aren't all that bad either.

“Love this little place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Don't blink you may miss it, and you should kick yourself if you do. I eat here all the time. Great sandwiches. Food is always fresh. I get the pazzono... or something like that. I know I misspelled it but you get the idea. I have had several other sandwiches. They are all great, but I keep going back to my favorite. <3
