“Miserable owner”
Review of Southside Deli

Southside Deli has free WIFI but they sure do not want you to use it. The owner does not even know the passphrase even though he says sure we have WIFI. He went to great lengths by covering up all the outlets to plug in your laptop. I think laptop's use all but a few watts to run. Times must be hard. What a miserable man as he shook his head when you finally found the only outlet hidden behind the soda cases that his worker pointed out to me and was kind enough to allow me to use it. The owner has no personality whatsoever and the food is high priced. You are better off at MORTON"s gourmet deli around the corner where you will be treated with the best service in town.

Enter Southside deli and feel right at home. You'll find locals sqeezed into every corner ordering their favorites and chatting about the day's news and visiting. Everyone is happy because the food is always consistant and there is a comfort of knowing that everytime you go your chicken salad will still be that good! Kids feel at home as well and Joe (the owner) knows most of them by name because moms flock there regularly! There is a drive through window for pick up orders on the go and even a dog bone waiting for your pooch if you bring along for a ride! Go to Southside Deli, sit down and enjoy what all the locals have known for years...

When my family lived in Sarasota we would walk to the Southside Deli for their wonderful 'Southsider' sandwich. Now that we live in Atlanta and are only able to spend our summer on Siesta Key - a trip would not be complete without a visit to our favorite spot. Also, trust me Southside Deli has much more than our favorite sandwich!
