This store front small restaurant pass a as genuine NY Deli, only without the yelling! The meat portion is generous and the sandwiches are delicious. At first we thought the price was a bit high but when we were served we were impressed with the...size. You get a choice of side or bag of Miss Vicki chips, potato salad, or ? (I forget). I opted for the potato salad. It was also delicious.More

This was a quick option for lunch between rounds of golf. We both ordered off their menus and they had plenty of sandwiches to choose . The portions were good and the food was tasty,made fresh. The place was crowded, but the weight was quick.

Great place for lunch. I go back every time we pass through town. And I feel very safe here. I only complain is we showed up to eat at 9:20am and the grill was warm enough to cook yet. They left us with few choices...to eat. I’ll eat breakfast else where.More

This eatery was the nicest, friendliest, tastiest, cleanest (A 100%) we've been to in awhile. It's convenient (right off I-95, Hwy 6 East in Santee). The staff is friendly and the cold cuts, salads, and wraps are fresh, high quality and delicious! They also have...seasonal homemade soups (on brrrrr...cold days). They also take orders ahead if you call, and with a day or so notice they can do larger pick-up catering orders. They're open 7 days, 9 to 6. 803-854-4601More

Very busy little restaurant with great food. The staff were very nice and everything appeared to be clean including the rest rooms. Had my favorite corned beef reubin and my wife had the roast beef. Both were very good and tasty. I would reccommend this...restaurant and deli to anyone that wants a good meal.More

Popping off the I-95 to grab some lunch and were very delighted to find this little gem. From the Beef Dip to the Pastrami and the Reuben, it was all delicious.

We stopped here to get a quick late lunch on our way down 95. We wanted to avoid the chain fast food so gave it a try. Service was friendly and fast. Sandwiches around $13 with choice of chips or potato salad. We tried the...Reuben which was good and the Green Machine. Sandwiches were good. Potato salad was good (although that can be an opinion thing). Service very friendly and bathrooms were clean. We were glad we tried it.More

Got off I95 looking for some lunch and came across this. Almost didn't stop here as at first glance it didn't look like they had a seating area. Once inside we could see that they had a fair amount of seating so no issues with...that. The staff was friendly and they had a good number of choices on the menu. We ordered the Criag's Club and Chicken Salad Toasted Croissant. Both came quickly and both were very good. A good place for a quick bite.More

sandwiches are $11.50-$14 nothing special, but location location location. Owner is a realtor that has a business two doors down. Staff was pleasant however did not engage with the owner. While there someone came in and was upset because the online price was higher than...what she had anticipated and was advised that the owner has raised prices 3 times recently. Unsterstand due to the rising cost of food. You can buy Dietz and Watson products and salads by the pound for $10 a pound. Much more than food lion and IGA, but there are not many choices in the area. Service was pleasant and atmosphere was quaint. very close to I-95More
