Mall Deli is an iconic restaurant in Pittsburg, Kan. People flock to the deli, located at 202 E Centennial Drive, which has been a fixture in the area since 1979. A quick look online shows rave reviews about the place. My visit was mid-afternoon on a Sunday, and I was very surprised at how busy the place was…..a testament to its popularity!
It’s not a typical deli, where you purchase meat or cheese by the pound, but more of a restaurant, where you order your deli sandwiches from the wait staff. The atmosphere is classic vintage 70’s / 80’s.
Although the Mall Deli was very busy during my recent visit, the staff was very pleasant and quick. I was surprised how inexpensive my tasty, heated submarine sandwich was. My delicious sandwich was served with a huge helping of potato chips, which a friend states are phenomenal when you dip them in the Deli’s secret sauce. Speaking of the secret sauce, man does that stuff have some zing! It was similar to a ranch dressing, but with an added kick of flavor! I enjoyed the sauce on my sandwich, but will have to make a return visit to try it on my chips…..a return visit I’m certainly looking forward too!
Until next time.
