Being in the area, we stopped at Big Stein's Deli for lunch. We had hoped to find a gem; but there is no reason to repeat the visit. BSD seems to be clean, but tired. The place is a mismatch of coolers, counters, tables and shelves. Our service was questionable from the perspective that the lady who took our order... More

We stopped in here after landing in Tampa on our way to Sarasota. It's a small place in a strip mall with a few tables and a few stools at the counter. The sandwiches were delicious and the service was quick and friendly!

They have an amazing sweet habanero sauce, delicious potato salad and the Cuban is the best one I've had yet. Great value too!

Great classic Cuban sandwich and about the lowest priced too! All their prices are toward the low end making this place a solid value. The two people working there were nice. Smaller place with only a few tables, so probably best for takeout during busy lunch hours. Skip the boring chains and go to local places like this. I'm glad... More

OMG! You MUST try the original Cuban. It is the best in town. Tried several Cubans at several places and this one is first-rate!. AND it is on crispy Cuban bread. Heard from others that everything is good here, Can't wait to go back for another Cuban - or maybe I'll try the roast beef braised in red wine -... More

I stopped by Big Steins Deli for a quick lunch and was not disappointed. I had the cuban sandwich and enjoyed every bite! The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because the interior of the location could use some work. With that being said, pick up your sandwich and go to the nearby Fossil Park! You will not... More

I have eaten here a couple of times and must say it is a great deli. Food is New York style and nice mix of sandwiches and sides. Very simple interior but pleasant to eat there. Service is a bit eclectic but works for the deli. It can be a little slow when busy but everything made to order so... More

Don't bother. Homemade meatball means the frozen kind you get at the grocery store to these two clowns! So gross. That was a special today for $6.50 but rang up as 8:50 with a can of root beer. They are not good at math as well. The customer in front of me ordered some type of tuna salad and the... More

I had a sandwich here and it wasn't anything great. I had hopes for this place but haven't been back in a year. The restaurant is easy to miss.
