Used their lunch catering recently. Service is good. Recommend the chicken gouda pasta as it is very tasty. I would pass next time on the cupcakes. They were not bad but not up to par with some of the cupcake stores. The cookies are very good. Will use them again.

I ordered a Cuban and a Turkey Ruben for my wife and I to go. I arrived at 12:10pm to pick up order. There were NO customers present at 12:10pm on a Tuesday. RED FLAG. This place has always been more than busy when I have been there which was about 2 years ago. Sandwiches were below average and pricey.... More

I was craving a real turkey sandwich at 5 months pregnant and came to the right place. Since I am not allowed to eat cold lunch meat, I asked the clerk if the turkey was real turkey or cold cuts and was positively delighted when she stated that the turkey was made fresh in house. Oh man was that like... More

Meat was done properly and had great flavor. Server was excellent. Manager stopped by to check on how we were doing and chat a bit. Atmosphere was very relaxing... More

The previous owners knew the niche and filled it well. The served large portions of quality food for a good price. After the ownership change things started to slide down. During my most recent visit, the pastrami was dry and the bread slightly hard. Service was decent, but it seems as like these owners have little to no experience. No... More

CarrollwoodDeli, Owner at Carrollwood Cafe & Deli, responded to this review

I sincerely apologize for your experience. We have owned Carrollwood Deli for the past three years and have not experienced such dissatisfaction. The quality of food and menu has remained the same. Our Jewish Rye is baked fresh everyday. Our New York pastrami is the actual cut of meat as opposed to lunch meat or sub par cuts that are... More

Just had lunch here and was not disappointed! It is not a big place, but very conveniently located on Dale Mabry. I ordered the tuna sandwich on honey wheat toasted. It was really big, with lovely tomatoes - I thought about taking half of the tuna off, but glad I didn't -- very tasty and fresh tuna. The bread is... More

All reviews on this are on point. My review now is based off at least 12 prior visits and every time it's been amazing. Portions, flavor, and price are just right. Do yourself a favor and try their half sandwich with soup option. It's a great way to taste 2 things they are great at in one visit and not... More
