We went to the Grand Deli today at the request of my father, and it was delicious. Local spot where you order at the register and seat yourself. Makes the wait time shorter. It was pretty busy but we immediately found a patio seat, which...More

Very average place that needs to be updated a bit. Orders two of the breakfast specials, the breakfast burrito was good but for 8.95, it's a bit much. My spouse ordered the banana pancakes (twice!) first time, outside burnt and not cooked all the way.......More
