Typical menu for a deli - fish, deli meats, salads & dinners. Only open to 8 P.M. Portions and quality vary from fair to good. Provide a pickle trey. Service`better daytime.

After not being at DDR for a couple of years, we stopped by for a quick lunch during our bike trip. We came outside the peak time, so we got seated right away. Great food and fast service as always.
