In Arizona good delis are few and far between. Sure there are plenty of "delis", but to find a decent Jewish deli...it's nearly unheard of in my part of town. Imagine my delight to discover Chompies, for some reason I can't explain, I'd always thought...More

The food is solid and the sandwiches are huge. I love the turkey sliders. It’s the type of varied menu you’d expect to see in New York deli. The only thing I wish is that I had room for the deserts behind the counter. Service...More

Pastrami was especially fatty, unedible tonite. Left most of it on plate and ate just the rye bread and chicken soup. Chicken soup excellent as always. Almond pastry roll very stale. Threw most of it out at home.

We dropped by for lunch and were new to the chain. Very pleased with wide range of menu choices ...a diner plus. We choose salads that eere very generous but heavy on eating. Perhaps a choce closer to diner style would be better.

The food was good as usual but they were really understaffed and it sounds like that’s a normal situation.

I think Chompies is as good or better than the famous NYC deli Katz's. Their corned beef piled high sandwich is juicy, sliced thin, and on their Jewish rye with mustard. the half sours are the best on the planet. We live in Tucson, and...More
