Price: Small sandwich $7, large $9

Food: We got the ‘Italian’- weren’t impressed, but it’s not a snazzy sandwich, & tasted similar to Subway.  I’ve gone back & tried the salami & provolone, but still wasn’t blown away.  People love them, and they get rave reviews online.  While I liked my sandwich alright, it was actually comparable to less expensive delis, so I would only go there if I had no other options.  The Ft. Lauderdale-by-the-Sea location is great to grab a sandwich and walk to the beach.  I really wanted to love them as much as the majority of the people in this area, but I didn’t.

Atmosphere: Supposed to be authentic New York style, complete with entertaining attitude.  The people were nice, and we heard that they throw your meat around as they make the sandwiches (one person is slicing, tosses to the person making your sandwich)—unfortunately didn’t happen when we were there.  I wanted more of a show.  :)

Service: Everyone was very nice and helpful.

Tidbits: Famous hoagies, really a landmark here.  If you go during lunch, call your order in ahead of time, because they get CRAZY busy.  We went for dinner once and they’d run out of bread due to the nutty lunch crowd.  They’re that loved.  Takeout only.

Quick food along the beach.

Price: $6-9

Food: This is really a snack-bar/food-court kind of restaurant.  They had chicken sandwiches (alright), philly cheesesteak (alright), chicken fingers and other similar stuff.  There’s not a whole lot to choose from if you’re walking the beach and just want a quick bite to eat.  This filled the gap for us that day.  They serve beers (bottles) als0.

Atmosphere: This is in a little shopping strip facing A1A, with the beach directly across the street.  There are little tables under umbrellas outside, and not really much seating inside, but why would you want to?  Great people watching outside.

Service: The guy behind the counter was pleasant.

Tidbits: This is directly adjacent to the large metered parking lot at A1A & Las Olas.  Locals: You can also park for free & walk a couple blocks if you’ve registered with the city  (click here for more info).
