Stopped in for a late lunch and really enjoyed it. I had the pastrami and corned beef on rye with deli mustard and Swiss cheese. No complaints, and definitely I place I would visit again.

Great place for a quick and tasty lunch. Probably as good of a deli as you'll find in the area. Counter staff did a fantastic job.

That's the question I am asking myself after having lunch just now. The "piled high" corned beef, pastrami and Swiss was anything but. One piece of each meat and I'm not sure there was even cheese on the sandwich. They forgot the mustard and I had to go back up and ask. My coworkers were also very disappointed. Three sandwiches,...

Sandwiches are delicious and there is something for every taste. Soups are great and they have a lot of different kinds of brownies.

The deli sandwiches were very good, although the soup was not up to par. This is a fast-food, no-frills deli.

We enjoy having lunch at Padow's Deli in Richmond VA on Main Street in the downtown area. I always order a country ham sandwich on wheat bread.

A great deli to grab a tasty and affordable sandwich. Also offers soups and salads every day. One visit will cause you to come back again....and again ....and again.

My wife and I had sandwiches. Both were delicious. The price was more than reasonable. The service was incredibly friendly. The room itself is large and functional but nothing more. So I'm giving it 5 stars because I can't figure out how not to. It is, after all, only a deli, and all we had were a couple of sandwiches,... More

Our Girl Scout troop had toured the Capital and was looking for quick, inexpensive lunch option. (The line at the deli in the Capital was obscene in length.) We found this place on Trip Advisor on our smart phones. It is a quick walk and the sandwiches are fresh, the place is clean and the service was off the hook... More
