“Authentic Deli without Fuss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Like the cartoon character, this deli is what it is. It is a bit worn, a bit of a throwback and absolutely not a concept. That is why it is a treasure. Good matzoh ball soup, excellent pastrami, fine reubens and other speciality sandwiches . Not much to look at, but that is why delis have take out. I am in the area annually, and I always have a meal from here. South Florida used to have such places, sadly we do not anymore.

“Over priced!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

12 dollars for a sandwich!! I was hoping it would be the greatest sandwich ever...it was good, but not 12 dollars good. I think even at 8 dollars it would barely be a value. I don't see myself going back unless it is half price day.

“Edible food; slow, unattentive, unfriendly staff”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

The food was okay but nothing special.

We waited a long time for service and an even longer time for the food to arrive. We were there after the lunch rush but before dinner. There seemed to be more staff than customers, so I did not understand the wait. I had the feeling we were putting the waitress to a lot of trouble. Especially asking for a pickle.

“Good Sandwiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

This place consistently serves good meat on fresh bread. I especially love their brisket and their pastrami choices. Their onion rolls are always very good. In at least two dozen visits, I have had only one unsatisfactory sandwich that had more fat than usual. The staff is efficient, though not especially friendly. We always carry out. They do have a full service restaurant adjacent to the deli.

“A bit dated, but the food and service are both great.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012

Service was attentive, friendly, and timely. The sandwiches were very good, and the portions were of average size (3 oz meat on sandwiches). The meat on my sandwich was perfectly moist, and tasty. The brisket was not too fatty like some others.

The menu choices are very broad with many traditional Jewish plates. There is even chopped liver, if you are into that. I am excited to return and try breakfast, as they have four different fish plates.

It seems like an old standby for many people. The old folks love this place.

The only things I can fault Deli Unique on are the dated decor and color scheme, and the noise. The low ceilings over the booths do nothing for sound attenuation, and reflect adjacent booths' conversations into yours.
