Best Deli is normally the kind of place that appeals to me--a small, local restaurant competing with large, nearby chains. Unfortunately, this restaurant fails to live up to its name. This is a deli, with 8-10 tables. You order over the counter, you pay a the register, you serve your own soft drinks, and a cook makes your sandwich. Not... More

I just moved back to the area and was sad when I learned that Ellie's sold their shop to another owner. The deli is now called Best Deli but looks exactly as... More
