I love to stop here when running errands. I can be as picky as one could imagine about putting together the perfect sandwich with "hold this" "can I get extra that..?". They actually look happy to make me the perfect sandwich. The pre-made salads are huge and yummy. I love the outdoor seating option. Thank you so much for having... More

This is a great Tampa deli, with excellent pastas also. Try the Mad Cow and Wild Turkey sandwiches. Highly recommend.

Marked by the presence of many daily regulars for over 20 years, this popular sandwich shop features freshly made pasta, nice salads, rather rich casseroles (artichoke-spinach, mac n'cheese, yellow squash ) and Sicilian baked chicken. The real stars are the sandwiches: Big Tony (Italian ), Wild Turkey ( with sauteed mushrooms and pepper-jack melted cheese on top of great roasted... More

I just happened on this place because I made a wrong turn. I am so glad I did! This place comes right out of the streets on New York. The sandwiches are good, but the sides ..... Fabulous. I came back a second time and just ordered all the sides! They are that good! Wish it was closer to where... More

Been going here for nearly 18 years. Mostly workday lunches probably once every couple weeks when we want something special. Great gourmet sandwiches, hot foods and pasta dishes. Friendly people and they have a catering business if you need to plan an event. I eat out for lunch 2 or 3 times a week and know all the places from... More

Sandwich was good. Lunch wasn't crowded but usually is. Refill your drinks yourself. Parking is sometimes difficult during peak hours. Don't park across the street, they will tow you. Love the friendly owner.

Unless you've ever been to a proper New York Deli you'll never experience what that means. With so many deli's in the city competition is fierce and perfection a must. Mott & Hester has been bringing that experience to Tampa for decades. From fresh pasta to my favorite spinach casserole. Definitely worth the trip

Mott & Hester has been a south Tampa staple for over 25 years. It is great for take-out and catering. The sandwiches are plentiful and delicious. They make their own pasta and have many signature dishes that you can eat at their relatively small seating area or take home. The owner Ted is always present which makes this a very... More

This place is awesome! I got a shrimp po'boy and it was pretty good. My friends both got the Mad Cow sandwich, and I was eyeing that up! I know what I'm getting next time. Nothing fancy at this place, just awesome sandwiches! The sides look good too, but I don't have room in my belly for a side after... More
