“Must pay extra for Lettuce, SALT and Pepper!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2011

We own a house in the Heights and tend to frequent Murphy's Deli as a trade-off from the typical beat and path of subway, quiznos and BBQ. The location closest to us is 3017 N Durham Dr #100, 77018. It's never crowded on the weekend and I guess we now know why. REALLY BAD SERVICE!! Who would've thought ordering a combo and sprinkling lettuce, lathering mayo with a few shards of onion could be so difficult?

This past Saturday, a lady who claimed to be the owner was in a really bad mood and surely was not used to sliding sandwiches down the rack (some teen' must've skipped his shift that day) and she decided to take it out on the customers. First, she was way too cool for school wearing sunglasses, an inappropriate uniform and parked her BMW in the handicap parking spot; we knew we we're in trouble walking in. We asked for two combo's and she told us, tomatoes are not included, then we asked for extra lettuce and she told us, tomatoes, lettuce and get this, salt and pepper are EXTRA. Want some sweet peppers? Nope! EXTRA!

We told her, we come all the time and would not be back! She then, told us, "Oh well, sorry we can't make everyone happy!" Thinking we would take her mouth and her poorly made sandwiched, we told her, they were hers to eat. As we walked out, no sandwiches in tow, we saw her breaking them down and putting them back in the metal trays for the next customer.

So I guess, not only do they napkins hostage, they hold lettuce, tomatoes and salt n' pepper too.

Wont be going back there every again!

Who knows, how many sandwiches we've eaten from there, from ingredients they put back in the tray from someone else.
