Dave's New York Deli  


Many of our customers have taken the time to post reviews online. Here are just a few of the reviews we have seen.

“The real deal”
[5 of 5 stars]

We love this place. It has some of the best hot pastrami that I've ever eaten--just as good as any I've had in NYC. The menu is very authentic and everything we've ever ordered has been Yum!

"Simply awesome"

[5 of 5 stars] 

Kids food? Check. Good for older folks? Mom, aunt and uncle loved it. Check. Something great for me? Absolutely. 
Family loved the Cuban sandwiches, kids went nuts for the hot dogs and even peanut butter and jelly, Mom's Reuben was fantastic, and what about my turkey rueben? Incredible. We decided to split a pair of cheesecakes... That was not going to work so had to get another.
Overall service was great and props to that poor Yankee girl from New York City, she runs the store like a pure original. 
I think Arnold said it best, "I'll be back!"

“Great little place”
[5 of 5 stars] 
Our family wanted steak and cheese subs and saw Dave's New York Deli on an advertisement. So, we went to visit. We all really liked our subs. They had all types of steak and cheese that we all got exactly what we wanted, how we wanted them. We went around 11:50 am on a Monday. There was no wait and plenty of seating. The staff was great and they were all friendly. Will definitely be back to try other things off of their long menu. Funny how some other reviewers stated it was pricey, Publix charges 9.09 for a not so good heated up roast beef steak and cheese in our area down south, and we paid 8.99 here for a 12" authentic thin shaved steak with perfectly cooked chopped onions and mushrooms. We thought it was a great deal! Visited 

“I keep coming back 'cause its still great!”
[5 of 5 stars] 
I just can't say enough good things about this jewel in Gainesville's crown. I last reviewed Dave's a few years ago, and it remains consistently at the top of every metric. The food is true NY (and I should know!), and the service is pure Southern hospitality. The prices are more than reasonable for the terrific quality and gezunter New York portions. They are very consistent with both McAlister's and Jasons...with a BIG difference: This is DELICATESSEN food, not deli food. Visited  

“Best Pastrami”
[5 of 5 stars] 

Get the New Yorker classic style.... 1/2 lb of the best pastrami you have ever eaten. My wife got the salami and she loved it. Staff were friendly and helpful. We will be back even though we're about miles 100 away.

“Very good food”
[5 of 5 stars] 
At Dave's, customers order at the counter, then the food is delivered. The staff is friendly. We went on a Saturday just past noon and the place was packed (if that says anything). I had the cheese flatbread and it was delicious. My friends all had sandwiches and were satisfied with the taste and portions. The food came out quickly. No complaints here.

Awesome Subs and Salads” 
My daughter and I were in Newberry Florida for a Horse Show and wanted something besides your average fast food joint. We tried Dave's Deli and loved it. We were only in town four days but we ate at Dave's Deli twice while we were in town. Subs, salad's and cheesecake very good! Staff very nice also!

“Love this place”

The good is always great. My personal favorite is anything with corn beef and pastrami. I'm never disappointed.

“Delicious Deli”
We had lunch at Dave's New York Deli. I had Dave's Big Antipasto Salad, my three companions each had the hot pastrami sandwich. My salad was true to it's name: BIG! The balsamic vinaigrette was perfect on this salad topped with Ham, Capicola, Genoa Salami, Pepperoni, and Mozzarella. Everyone enjoyed the hot pastrami sandwiches. The menu is varied enough to please all tastes.

“Just Awesome!!”
A great deli with a huge menu!! Sandwiches are always loaded with meat, unlike many other sandwich places. The line can get a little bit long at peak times, but it's well worth the wait!

“Great deli!”
Our group ordered a variety of different sandwiches, and all were excellent! Well stuffed with meat and cheese, friendly service, not too crowded on a Sunday at lunch, which was a real plus, too. We'll definitely be back!

“Excellent Variety”
This NY style deli delivers on well made sandwiches. There are many choices making it an easy choice for varying tastes. The pastrami, corned beef and roast beef sandwiches were authentic. The Italian was also very good. Fairly quick service.
