I have never been disappointed at Poor Richard's. There sandwiches are a little smaller than they once were but still worth what you pay for them. The most awesome sweet around.

I got the chili and it was slightly cool still in the middle. My friend got the general and it was OK but still not good as it normally is.

Food was just so-so (sandwich). Nothing to write home about. Probably won't ever go back. People have raved about Poor Richard's tea - well, I have had better, even Mickey D's tea is better that this.

Way too expensive for what they think is deli food. The food is average. Not nearly the deli quality they charge for. Toojay's deli in South Florida and deli's in New England are REAL deli's and they are priced the same as this place. I...More
