The deli food is fresh and delicious each time! I purposely drive across town just to get the delicious deli meat instead of going to the regular grocery stores.

This is the deli that sets the standard for all delis. The Reuben is perfect all with the other items on the menu. Check Cecil's out for that New York Deli feel.

Ahhh with prices, sorry. The prices were reasonable for the food we got, I wouldn't call the place low budget but we wouldn't hesitate to go back here again and again.
