The Best of South Florida: Best Deli
Tonight, we promise you no hamming around and nothing too cheesy. If you're looking for a great deli, our viewers have mustard up the top three locations in South Florida.
(WSVN) -- Sink your teeth into this. A real deli delight - right here in South Florida.
But if you want a meal and not just a sandwich, three places are a slice above the rest.
"You come here for great, great variety of deli food."
We had good service, the prices were right, and the quality of food was delicious.
Good service, good prices, and good food - regular customers say it has to be our viewer's third choice - Brothers of Brooklyn in Hialeah.
"It's more like a Brooklyn or New York Deli."
That means old fashioned quality with a fresh taste.
Brothers of Brooklyn promises big portions and great sides.
"The potatos - I like how they season them."
But if you want something really special then you have to try their famous omlette made by Chris the Chef.
"We're from Jamaica and when you're from the island you do everything right."
"It's not the food. It's the cook behind the food."
There's nothing wrong with the food at our viewer's second choice - Publix on Biscayne Boulevard in Miami Shores.
"It's easier than packing a lunch in the morning."
It's a community store.
That's right, Publix isn't just a supermarket - it's a super deli with sensational subs and chicken that really is finger-licking good.
"Sometimes, I have special requests and they meet it."
But what really makes this deli popular is the people behind the counter.
It's a quick stop, there's always a good staff, they're friendly, there's always a good variety.
We can guarantee you'll find a good variety at our viewers first chioce -that honor belongs to Arnie and Richie's in Miami Beach.
"I love their food. I love the deli."
And you'll love the selection of salads, sandwiches, not to mention a singing waiter.
The customers here call Arnie and Richies their second home.
And why not?? The meals are better than how mom made 'em.
"If you have consistent good food people will come back and we have consistent good food."
