I live in the neighborhood .. Staff service is uneven & at times the Mgr is haughty as if she is doing you a favor by serving you .. Don't go here at busy time .. Food is fresh & tasty but expensive ..
I've eaten at Southerly with my wife. We spent over $100 for a meal that was no better than Okra Grill. Agree with one post above its fancier with better dressed waiters. Also have had one of the Deli sandwiches. Quite skimpy for he price. Had only 4 very thin slices of meat inside for $9. Bread was not fresh. Ouch. Shopping for other stuff is okay. This resident won't eat there again.
Skioogie's does not need hype nor a PR firm .. Been the best all along .. Hot dogs are served fresh & hot .. Seppy's and Jack's are a joke .. Lukewarm, copy cats without imagination ..
Corned Beef made on premises, heated, is THE best within 500+ mi .. Blended with Pastrami the Fat Boy Sandwich is difficult to stop ordering time and again. Italian Omelette any time of day -- but especially toasted as a wedge is just what any hungry person wants at breakfast. Homemade fresh lemonade flavors including peach, raspberry & blackberry are superb. The hot Reuben sandwich is another easy addiction -- but can't deny the special hot 'n spicy "Jerk" is very unusual & is great at home with an ice cold Bud -- but make mine a Bass Ale .. The leader of this well-run deli, Shannon Campbell, is an amiable guy who really aims to please .. It's very obvious the staff he's put together have the same positive attitude. Everything is sooo very fresh, which if you come in at 6am sharp you'd know for sure because the boss is demonstrating his magical productivity at prepping a lot of those creamy deli salads. What's truly amazing also are the homemade quiche pies they make,
often reflecting 3-4 different daily flavors. Homemade Soups are frequently made & some are amazing like the Carrot-Ginger Bisque, Broccoli-Cheddar, New England Clam Chowder, & Potato-Leek. Reportedly they offer cold Gazpacho & selected cold Fruit Soup in the warm months. Where they sourced their half sour pickles is a well kept secret, but they are THE BEST way beyond 500+ miles ! If you try, you'll be hooked as is the loyal following which crowds this place EVERY DAY .. Smart is to call in your order then pickup at/before 11:30a .. When a patron sees then bites into a Mozzo sandwich, that "central plump" + fresh flavor is very addictive. Yum !
Our current president is best labeled "The Great Prevaricator" .. He's a lying fraud prone to jive jig BS and brown stuff .. Trustworthy not !!!
Concept = ICK .. One of the photos seems to reveal a skinned human hand on a stick being readied for grilling .. DISGUSTING ..
