Despite the lunch line extending out the door, the employees work really well and the line moves really well. The large menu overhead let you make a decision before getting to the front of the line. There is a wide variety of sandwiches and the cheesesteak was really good. Fries, chips or even salads available. Fresh bread, great sandwiches and... More

So glad to finally get here. A taste of home and all about Philly! Delicious finally a place that knows how to make a Philly Cheese Steak! Not to be missed. It's small and busy and only open until 3 so don't miss it

If you like Pastrami sandwiches, this is the place for you!! They use homemade coleslaw and the portions are large.

I went to this deli, which is across the street from the Smith Tower. The outside of it has the look of typical Seattle, though as soon as you enter you are met with a line of people waiting to get their hands on the delicious sandwiches that are made here. My personal favorite is the turkey pastrami. They make... More

Stopped by today and had the Tat Italian. Was great. Great hole-in-the-wall place with local flare (even though it is a Philly themed joint). Professionals, locals and everyone else loves this place. Neighborhood is fine during daytime.

Customizable sandwiches or pick from the menu, you will not be disappointed! You can eat in or takeout but if you eat in be sure you beat the lunch rush to ensure you get a seat. This was my first visit and was very pleased with the quickness in getting my order. The sandwich was spot on! Only drawback was... More

Tat’s Delicatessen first opened in the spring of 2004. And, in the years that it has been around, Tat’s has become a Seattle landmark and the go-to spot for East Coast steaks and subs. That’s a great thing given that Tat’s home is inside the historic Interurban Building, in Pioneer Square, which sits right across from the famous Smith Tower.... More

Before you head to a Seahawks, Sounders, or Mariners game do yourself a favor and stop by this spot. The Tat'strami is worth the visit.

If you're ever visiting the Pioneer Square area and are starving, Tat's Deli is the place to go to. We went twice during our trip and it was consistently tasty each time. The cheesesteaks were large and and delicious, and the prices were more than reasonable. If I lived in the area, I'd come here all the time (which would... More
