Wife and I have eaten here many times. It's always yummy and the service is great! I always get the Scoop sandwich. It's basically a French Dip, and it's soooo good! My bride had the Reuben. They didn't use rye bread, so it wasn't quite as good as she expected. Overall, we will continue to enjoy going to Rumors.

The steamed sandwiches are the best. Very unique to this area, the Tattle Tale and the Mouth of the South rival any North Eastern deli. Great atmosphere, call ahead if you are in a hurry!

Detoured off of 65 to hot this deli and it did not disappoint. I had the BBQ beef sandwich with potato salad and my wife had the Ruben. We both enjoyed the sandwiches and appreciated the decor and quick, friend service. It was worth the detour from the highway.

Rumors Deli serves the best sandwiches in Cullman. My favorites are the Hearsay, the Talk of the Town, and the Mouth of the South. I also love their taco soup and broccoli and cheese soup. Lots of fun memorabilia from bygone days cover the walls.

The food is one of a kind. Most everything on the menu has been designed by Ralph or his wife Annette. The atmosphere is calming and cheery. Every holiday they come out with something new just for the season.

Plenty to look at while you wait on your order. Very good food! Mouth of the South was awesome. Tasty BLT too. Nice variety of side salads if you want something besides chips. Like the one size cup for combos that you can help yourself to at the drink fountain. Will definitely return next time we are out that way!

Wonderful place for lunch. Never had anything that wasn't very good! Try the soups and half sandwiches. Have been many times with my daughter, always enjoy.

A great little deli with noticeable German influence. A good place for family and friend. Outdoor dining available. Defiantly coming back again.

It seems the wife and have made a habit of visiting the Farmer's Market, the shops in the Warehouse District, and finishing our relaxing and enjoyable Saturday morning routine with a delicious lunch at Rumor's Deli. The food is excellent, the staff is friendly, and the clientele enjoyable, as well as interesting.
