The Old World Deli has some great bread. The sandwiches are okay, but the bread is what makes it and there's not much more to say about it. I wish they had learned how to grill a Rueben. The deviled eggs are pretty decent. Authentic, creamy and fresh. Below is a Mediterranean, which includes turkey, corned beef, lettuce, tomato and sprouts. Not sure what exactly was so Mediterranean about it. Oh and it is supposed to come with cheddar, but the guy told me they were out of cheddar, so I had to get provolone. Well, the thing is, a number of people who ordered after me indeed were served the apparently scarce cheddar cheese on their sandwiches. This annoyed me greatly. Someone at my table was kind enough to go halfers with me so I could try it with cheddar. It was a vast improvement, but the damage was done.

Here is the "Reuben". The meat is warm, the bread is not. It was mediocre. I did like the pickle slices. The marble rye is the saving grace. It is light and fluffy, but held together pretty well.
