This is a chain of about twenty-five delis throughout Florida. We have visited this location a few times. The food is good, the selection is fine and the service is decent. It just lacks the feel of a real deli. There are no pickles or slaw on the table; the menu doesn't generate any excitement; the rye bread is nothing like the real thing; and maybe the staff is just not sufficiently abrupt.
It probably has something to do with the market … Tampa is not a hotbed of Jewish delis. On the west coast of the state, this is about as close as we have been able to find. We did try a Toojay’s in Vero Beach, but that was not so different from the Tampa experience. At least on the east coast there are plenty of other choices of delis if you’re looking for good rye bread and corned beef. For now, on the west coast, we’ll keep looking.
