Not quite sure if the rueben was worth the $11.25, but sure was tasty! Will go back again and try the coleslaw option instead of the potato salad.

What a find this place is! This is just a small sandwich joint with BIG sandwiches. We shared a Reuben and Filet Mignon sandwiches and they were superb. Do yourself a favor and have the homemade coleslaw,too. They have an interesting collection of pictures on the wall as well.

Saw the sign which says "Voted Best Reuben in Florida" so stopped in. I believe it. Little bitty place with 15(?) seats. Small store front. Not fancy. But boy was the sandwich good! Big sandwich. Excellent corn beef & sauce. Very little sauerkraut. Will definitely stop again. But like I said, not fancy. Memories of the big city. Loved it.

They make a fantastic hot pastrami sandwich! I love the juicy overstuffed pastrami on rye sandwiches which used to be easily found in New York deli's. A friend tipped me about this little deli in the Gulf Gate area. It is really good, lot's of juice soaking into the rye. It comes with a long sliced pickle and either chips... More

We love the corned beef sandwiches here. The meat is very flavorful and tender and rye bread is very fresh. We have been here several times and have never been disappointed.
