When hubby and I traveled we always had a rule – NEVER eat at chain restaurants when there’s a mom & pop place in town! This rule has rolled over into our everyday life. We were traveling through this town today at lunch time and ran across this adorable little deli. Frankie is a real person full of piss & vinegar as my grams would say (that’s a good thing) full of spunk, smiles, laughter and fun.

She called everyone that walked through the door by name and her daughters are her wait staff. Tomorrow night is her BIG St. Patrick’s Day party with green beer and everything. If you’re in the area stop by and say hi!

Oh and by the way she makes the best pastrami sandwiches I’ve had in forever!
