I just moved to town and this deli is walking distance from my new house....being without pots/pans, etc, I recently ate out a lot. Great menu, fresh sandwiches, definitely a neighborhood place for a coffee and paper. Can't wait to get to know the crew as I become a regular! I highly recommend the Reuben and the Gobbler!

I went there several times for lunch. After I tried their chicken, I only wanted that. Funny how some places do a particular food so good.

Have stopped in numerous times for a breakfast sandwich and a lunch break. Great variety to choose from and quick service, friendly staff, if busy it is still well worth the wait. Premier deli and sandwich breakfast shop!

Food and staff is good but the place is run down and outdated, needs to be updated to keep with the neighborhood

Great local eatery to grab a fast breakfast sandwich and coffee. Also does a steady business for the lunch crowd!

We've only had their food once, but our sandwiches were very good: turkey, stuffing, cranberry on wheat bread. The turkey seemed home-cooked. The stuffing could have had more seasoning--it didn't have great flavor--but it was a very good sandwich. We'll try it again.

I have eaten in Delis from NY, to Las Vegas, to Kansas City, to..... and this one was absolutely top shelf. Breakfast sandwiches etc all day, Outstanding selections and two soup choices a day. You cannot go wrong at the Pickle Barrel

I cant believe how crowded this place gets. The prices are high and the food is average at best. You are better off going across the street to the Gaetano's, its an Italian deli with high quality ingredients.
