It's claim to be the oldest 'deli' in Texas no doubt attracts a lot of tourists as it did us. I have to say though that in any other part of the world this is not a 'deli' But leaving that to one side the...More

Authentic and interesting older building on the town square. The food was good, not fancy. My turkey Reuben was flavorful without drowning in sauce. Chicken salad also had just the right amount of mayonnaise. We had never heard of chicken spaghetti soup, the day’s special....More

This deli is located in an old building, which adds to the restaurants charm. It's a nice place for an affordable light lunch in the downtown area. I work nearby and frequent this deli often. I rarely dine-in but when I do, I sit in...More

I wouldn't know, since they apparently refused to serve us. My colleague and I are visiting on a business trip and thought we'd try the deli. We entered, it was lunch and fairly busy. We sat at a table that had been vacated but not...More
