This family-owned and operated restaurant & deli serves delicious food. I don't even like marbled rye/pumpernickel bread and this was delicious. I ate the whole sandwich with glee. My husband enjoyed his stuffed pastrami sandwich very much; my veggie sandwich called "Light Veggie" on the menu was upgraded from very good to excellent with the addition of the homemade cole...

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

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

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

The owners aim to please. Great sandwiches. The bread is amazing - and they bake it themselves. Don't miss this one!!
