Description: We at POMPERDALE DELI recognize the need to continue the tradition of keeping the DELICATESSEN alive. From generation to generation, corned beef/pastrami sandwiches piled high on delicious rye bread coupled with a simmering bowl of matzo ball soup have been enjoyed by people from all hemispheres. The experience of dining in a deli like this is not only a haven for foodies, but a step back into time when people would gather, waiting in line, conversing with other patrons as though they were long lost friends.

Enjoyed a Jodi combination sandwich of turkey and chopped liver, served with pumpernickel bread, some cole slaw and a couple of pickles. It was moist and tasty. The portion of cole slaw was small, but this was not a side as such.

Am not a deli-goer normally so have no ready made yardsticks. Suffice to say that the place is small and has a high counter opposite shared tables - so, not a venue for dining out in company. But, that is no surprise. More relevant is that based on my small sample dish, there is some expectation of quality in the rest of the menu.

One can tell from the disappearance of long lines at lunch that the community is on to the changes for the worse at Pomperdale Deli. While sandwiches are admittedly large (perhaps even too large) Pomperdale is proof that size alone does not make a good deli. Corned Beef and pastrami that previously were both warm and great tasting are now warm and ordinary tasting. Sorry guys but simply unwrapping commercial grade meat and warming it up just doesn't do it. I tried this place twice under new management and guess I need to forget about getting quality deli in Ft. Lauderdale. Guess I'll just have to stick with the good offerings that still exist in Boca Raton and Delray Beach.

GO GO GO. Excellent deli food. Just like NYC. Terrific corned beef, pastrami, white fish, etc. Tried their white fish salad and liked a lot, not my normal choice. Great pickles. Even had Dr. Browns black cherry soda. Enjoyed the help yourself coffee. GO GO GO.

The quintessential NY deli within steps of the beach, the sandwiches are piled mile high with deliciousness. Service is efficient and courteous. You'll never go hungry at Pomperdale.

This was a great find for authintic NY Style Deli Sandwiches. The only issue is the seating is crowded, tables jammed in and a bit confusing with the drinks on your first visit, but man, the sandwiches make up for that...be prepared..go hungry !
