Downtown Petersburg is largely blighted. But the skeletal remains exist that can be rebuilt, and although progress is slow, it does exist here. Longstreet is a good example of this, located on a street that includes abandoned buildings, a crumbling museum and a few unique and interesting shops that have cropped up. Longstreet, as others have mentioned, is more of a restaurant/bar than a 'deli,' although their (large) menu skews sandwich. The space is re-purposed something, and it's a nice mix of old and new, and not gentrified.

Everything we had was fantastic - really, good, and extremely reasonably priced.

The problem - it took 35 minutes from the time we ordered to get a hamburger and a reuben. This when the place was about 35% full. When we complained, a few other guests says that's normal here. So take that for what you will - obviously it didn't stop these other people from returning.

Bottom line - if you're in no hurry and are in the area, this place is great.

I visited Longstreets for the first time time this week and I was not disappointed. The food is so good and the service was great. The wings are great and my friend and I devoured them and would have ordered more but we couldn't wait to try the pizza and that was excellent as well. Served super hot and quickly. Their beers on tap selection is incredible and we will definitely be back to enjoy a nice cold beer with all this hot weather. Can't wait to check out some of the music they have Wednesday-Saturday nights - this is a great place to hang out and have a good time. You should really stop in to see for yourself...

Longstreet's Deli offers a good variety of sandwiches and other meals. They have great onion rings and their homemade chips were very tasty. They also had a large number of beers on tap, most of them from smaller brewries. Our server was attentive although it took the kitchen a while to get the food out. The food was hot when delivered so I know the server wasn't letting it sit. Seems like a good local place to eat.

Longstreet's is an excellent stop for lunch with your collegues or a night of watching the game with your friends. It has a laid back atmosphere. You might actually see a famous actor stop by on occassion. People typically chill and drink beer. The food, especially the sandwhiches and frips are on point. The service is pretty good and friendly. It's a place I would definitely recommend from lunch til late night.
