My girlfriend needed to make a run to the Jewelry Doctor in the Frandor Shopping Center so we figured we’d hit up someplace in that area for lunch. I had heard a lot about Amici’s New York Style Deli, but we couldn’t find it. I didn’t realize it wasn’t quite in the Shopping Center. Since we were kind of limited on time, I didn’t feel like driving around the area to look for it. Instead, I noticed a sign for the Frando Deli. I figured that would be quick and we could grab sandwiches to go.
Good sign when we walked in. The place was packed. We made our way through the small dining room to the counter to order our meals. All of the sandwiches are already made and wrapped in plastic wrap. When you order, they take the wrap off and then give you the options to customize the sandwich. The pizza looked really good, but since we were grabbing something to go, I didn’t think that would have been a very good idea. Instead, I went with the Beef and Cheddar sandwich. The counter person asked if I wanted it heated and I passed. I also passed on the toppings which would be your general deli toppers. With the sandwich, I got a bag of BBQ chips, a small pickle spear and a medium Pepsi. The sandwich was pretty good which kind of surprised me. They must make and wrap the sandwiches every morning. The bun was fresh and soft and the meat was still a little moist. There was more shredded cheese than beef on the sandwich, but there was enough meat to make me feel like I didn’t get cheated.
My girlfriend got a ham and cheese sub. The first thing she noticed also was the bread and how soft it was. Her sandwich got some lettuce added to it. She passed on the quick microwave as well. Instead of BBQ chips, she went with regular chips and a Diet Pepsi. She commented about the flavor of the ham and more than once mentioned how soft the bread was. Again, something we didn’t expect from a sandwich that was already made and sitting in a case.
We were looking for something quick and cheap and that’s what we got with Frandor Deli. Our bill was just over $12 which would have been about the price of one meal at the place we were looking for. Even with a full house, it took all of five minutes to get our sandwiches and get us out of there. Frandor Deli serves it’s purpose. Good food, good prices and a quick lunch.
