I too am from NY. We sought out this restaurant looking for a decent pastrami sandwich in southwest Fl. This is the place. It is NOT Katz's or the Carnegie Deli. The meat was close, but not quite as good. Also, in NYC the meat sits on a steam table for hours so that it is very tender. That said,... More

Rocky has a great meal. No matter what we've ordered, it has made everyone at home happy. I called and he was almost closed up... but waited and I was quick like I promised I'd be. As it was, I was able to be juuust under closing time. Thanks, Rocky. BTW, wife LOVED the pastrami on rye.

Originally from NYC, we can be a bit fussy about our pastrami. We'd been searching for a delicious, lean pastrami sandwich for over a year. FINALLY we found Ham Heaven and Deviled Dogs. A little off the beaten path however whether you're a local to the Sarasota area, a snowbird or on vacation don't miss your chance. Looking forward to... More

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.

They make some amazing sandwiches! Aside from great food, the owners were amazing. As soon as they opened people came pouring... More

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.
