Summary

Its a good place for a deli sandwich, but don't expect anything in the way of atmosphere. If you want a sandwich on the go, this would work. Summary Review: C+

Food

Its solid, fresh, Deli food. Although they say its a New York deli, they have a Chicago dog or Italian Beef, too. Dig into generous portions, fresh breads and meats. And, we need to go back to try out the HUGE slices of cheesecake. I'm guessing it comes from the same kitchen as the Coffeeshop--which means it will be very good! However, our Italian Beef was a very good French Dip, they totally missed the mark on what an Italian Beef really is. Food Review: B-

Atmosphere

The Sports Deli is crammed between the sportsbook and a bank of slot machines. The seating area is small, the tables are small, and you can't lean back in the chairs. Also, the plates are cheap styrofoam. Basically, the ambiance isn't here. Its just a place to grab a quick bite. Atmosphere Review: C-

Service

Fortunately, their New York Deli has service far better than any true New Yorker would deliver! Its a stand-up counter, and your sandwich is made to order. Beyond that, find a table and sit down. Service Review: C+

Value

The prices are just a tad bit higher than they should be, but fortunately the food is good. I asked for a "water", expecting to get a cup filled from the soda fountain. But, instead, I was handed a $2.50 bottled water after my bill was run up. Value Review: C
