I am re-reviewing Charter Deli because I keep wondering if they will drop in quality or raise prices. We just went again 2 days ago and I can report that all is still well. No chain sandwich shop can compare. Charter offers good quality, reasonable prices and pleasing sandwiches. I walk on egg shells every time I go there, hoping... More

I have been going here for a few years. Everything is always very fresh. Service is always friendly and quick. This is my favorite deli in the area.

As locals, we enjoy getting a heart sandwich from here on occasion their Reuben is especially good and the potato knish is awesome.

I stop in here for lunch occasionally and love the hot corned beef with cole slaw and Russian dressing on toasted rye sandwich. Haven't tried other menu items, but it always seems busy at lunchtime so it probably has a lot of other good items to try. Service is quick and efficient.

Hidden in a medical plaza. This place does a business, though, so I guess the secret's out - we had to wait to get one of the few tables. Ordered the Big Ben Club and I can see this deli being a saving grace for anyone in the area needing a lighter lunch option, but I don't know that I'd... More

On days that I am in the area but don't have time, I hate to pass up Charter Deli's sandwiches. The sandwiches are generous, very tasty and you can stay at the small tables or take out. Nothing fancy, good food, good service on a minimal scale, simple drink, etc. items. This is the sandwich shop you always wanted to... More

Because of the way signage is handled in our little toewn, it is possible to not even know this gem exists. It is on Charter Drive, just off Hickory Ridge Road near the newest medical offices and back entrance to the Howard County General Hospital. Look to the right - first building after you get off Hickory Ridge Road and... More

I went to Charter Deli for the first time today. The staff was friendly and very helpful. I ordered the half sandwich (turkey Ruben) and salad. The Ruben was probably the best I've ever had. The bread was nicely toasted (not too hard and dry), the ratio of meat to kraut to dressing was just right. It was so good... More

Went first time today and now will be going often. One of the best sandwich I have had in long time. Freshest and real meat piled high, real,high. Place is spotless and very friendly staff. The menu has many choices, very hard to decide which one, so I will just keep going to try each one. One of us has... More
