We try to get here whenever we are in Arizona. Reminds us of NYC. Really great food, sizable portions. Friendly staff and the potato latkes are to die for.

What's not to like about this place? Their menu is so extensive, we didn't know where to start. My husband had a mile high chopped liver sandwich; I went for the Jewish sliders - real brisket on challah bread. The soups are delicious, the cole slaw is some of the best I've had, and the bagels can't be beat! Run,... More

I first ate at the Chompie's in Scottsdale and then found the one in Tempe closer to me Uncle's house. While the Tempe location is smaller, they both have outstanding food. If you love deli, this is the place to go. They have a great menu and the portions and prices are great. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Good food with sizable portions, enough to take home if you are not a big eater. Easy parking area beside the restaurant. The bakery and deli are very enticing as you enter. I am never disappointed.

We went there for lunch on Saturday 09/17. The service was barely adequate but the food was good. I had the brisket which could have done withou the gravy. Horseradish and mustard are enough. My wife had the big apple pancakes and really enjoyed them. I've never been to a deli that I didn't get a pickle with my sandwich... More

Great Food - Great Service -Tempting Bakery - Lots of Specials! Okay, so I wanted to see that the buzz was about and willing to face the ASU traffic to do so. I am so glad I did! The sandwich I ordered for take out was ready in less than 5 min. with so much lean rare roast beef that... More

We had lunch today. It was so hard to choose what to eat. Plus they serve breakfast all day. I had the small cobb salad which was huge and hubby had an omelet. We both liked what we chose and can't wait to go back and try something new!

For those of you who don't know what a real Deli is, you HAVE to come here! Everything is fresh and super flavorful. The portions are huge! I had a fresh bagel and lox spread as a starter. OMG wow! Ok, the stuff you buy I'm the grocery is just awful in comparison to this. These bagels will spoil you!... More
