Not one store on that list is a real deli. Not one.

Also, the “winner”, like most other Italian Deli’s is really just 5 salamis hanging from the ceiling and a couple of cento can’s and people think its a little Italy replica.

This town woudlnt know a good pastrami or a good canoli if it slapped them in the face.

Typical MoCo….gushing over mediocrity

Can you provide a few examples of what you consider a “real” deli, whether located in MoCo or some other county/state/country? And what is your definition of a real deli?

I looked at the brackets….COULD BE THE DUMBEST LISTING I’VE SEEN!!!
Bethesda Bagel isn’t a deli, nor is Bagletowne. There are Jewish Delis and Italian Delis Separate them into different categories. It’s almost like putting OUTBACK STEAKHOUSE in a competition w Capital Grille, or BLT, or Eddie V.
