“Have been going to Pickle Barrel since I’m 6 years old. Not corporate, not franchised – and the best pastrami on rye double mustard around, with a Dr. Brown’s of course.”

Pickle Barrel Deli & Delicatessen (Deerfield Beach)

*****  Pickle Barrel Deli & Delicatessen, 133 East Hillsboro Boulevard, Deerfield Beach, Florida 33441 (954) 427-0650.

“I am now going to give you the name of one of South Florida’s great “order at the counter delis”…Pickle Barrel. This joint has been around since 1974 and makes some of the most delicious deli sandwiches and salads that you have ever tasted. Take a look at Pickle’s website at www.picklebarrelfl.com for menu/prices.

I am telling you…the food at this joint is absolutely amazing. The corned beef, pastrami, turkey and tuna-shrimp-chicken salads are about as good as it gets…throw in your choice from 6 breads, 12 condiments and 5 cheeses and this joint can whip-up some heavy-duty combination sandwiches. As for prices, although Pickle Barrel is located right next-door to a pawn shop, you won’t have to go into hock for this joint’s sandwiches or salads… Pickel’s prices are in-line with your favorite neighborhood sub shop’s menu.

Pickle Barrel is open Monday-Friday 9am-6pm, Saturday 9am-5pm and Sunday 9:30am-4:30pm.”

“Try one of the specialty sandwiches – corned beef, pastrami, roast beef or maybe a trifecta.  The Deli Dinger starts with two slices of pillow-soft rye (with or without seeds) piled with quality delicatessen meats until it measures 3 inches high.  The pastrami is edged in pepper and spices, the corned beef lean and not too salty, the roast beef full of good meaty flavor.  Just the right amount of Swiss cheese goes atop the meat (it softens from the warmth of the meat) then on goes a smear of deli mustard to perk everything up.”

Takeout
Place: The Pickle Barrel
Address: 133 E. Hillsboro Blvd., Deerfield Beach
Phone: 954-427-0650; fax 954-427-0055
Type of food: Deli

Hours: 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday; 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday; 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Sunday.

Service/convenience: This hole-in-the-wall deli is used to accommodating a crowd that has only 30 minutes for lunch, so even though the place may look crowded, you’ll be served quickly. Because everything moves fast doesn’t mean you’re treated like a number.

Food ordered: Corned beef sandwich, of course ($6.75 regular; $8.25 large).

Food quality: Established in 1974, this place knows corned beef. Right down to how to slice it: against the grain. Eric Gliner, who has owned the place since 1988, says that another reason people are hooked on his corned beef sandwiches is because he buys only the best-quality brisket. And he sells as many as 200 sandwiches a day, so the meat never sits in the steamer too long. It always tastes fresh.

Plus, people like the size of the sandwiches. The regular contains half a pound of meat; the large, three-quarters of a pound. I like mine on a kaiser roll.

Delivery: Free on minimum orders of $10 if you live between Sample Road and Palmetto Park Road and between Powerline Road and A1A, but only from 11 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday; 11 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Saturday; 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Sunday.

“For a take-out sandwich, I also recommend The Pickle Barrel (133 Hillsboro Blvd., Deerfield Beach, 1-305-427-0650). The pastrami and corned beef there come from New York (via Miami), and it’s where my New York deli memories are invariably rekindled. It claims to sell “the world’s largest sandwiches” (there’s about a half pound of meat in each) priced at $4.95. You can also buy the meat by the pound for $9.95.
