I've not found anything good here. I won't go back. The place was not friendly, the staff was not friendly. And the prices are a bit high for a sandwich shop.

Rumors Deli serves the best sandwiches in Cullman. My favorites are the Hearsay, the Talk of the Town, and the Mouth of the South. I also love their taco soup and broccoli and cheese soup. Lots of fun memorabilia from bygone days cover the walls.

The food is one of a kind. Most everything on the menu has been designed by Ralph or his wife Annette. The atmosphere is calming and cheery. Every holiday they come out with something new just for the season.
