I was born and bred in Philly, but wherever I have lived I have endeavored to find a really good deli and sandwich shop to frequent. Not a chain restaurant, but something family run with authentic local flavor. So far Richmond is coming up short. There are a couple good places in Richmond proper, Bernie's being the shining star, but can anyone recommend such a place on the southside? And no, Fireside Subs does not count. I want an old wiseguy behind the counter, not a 17-year-kid.
I cant attest for any places in Richmond, but here in the HR area we have this little convenience store (hole in the wall place) that does sandwiches and the pressure fried food etc. Ill tell you what, those sammiches are aweeeeeeeesome. They know me as 'Mister Cheese' in there now as I order the exact same sandwich every time.
8" Cheese, No tomato, no oil, add mustard and pickles - cold.
I used to get the turkey but the cheese sub made like that is yumyumyumyumyum
Well I don't know about the Southside but NY Deli in Carytown is my go to spot for sandwiches. I especially love their Build Your Own option. Tarrant's Cafe has a Tilapia Reuben that is outstanding. Blacksheep's battleships are enough fro 3 people.
