3 G’s Gourmet Deli (Delray Beach)

Posted on May 22nd, 2008 · American Breakfast Delicatessen Delray Beach


***** 3 G’s Gourmet Deli, 5869 West Atlantic Avenue, Delray Beach, Florida, (561) 498-3910.

Before Jeff Eats’ website crashed, it had a writeup about 3 G’s Gourmet Deli. The jist of that review, was that this New York “kosher-style” deli was a joint that’s for the budget-crowd who would rather sacrafice quality for quantity.

This evening I gave 3 G’s Gourmet Deli another try. Sorry to say, same result. 3 G’s food is fair at best. You literally get tons of food for your money, but not one single item stands-out as being really good. For something like 13-14 bucks, you get an appetizer, entree, 2 sides, beverage and dessert…and the portions are LARGE.

If you are looking for quantity over quality this joint is for you. The food is just okay.

Finally, just so there is no misunderstanding between you guys and Jeff Eats- this food “reviewing” gig is purely a subjective call, you know, what I like you may hate and vice versa…

With the above in mind, I’m looking forward to reading your comments on this joint!

3 G’s is open 7 days a week for breakfast-lunch-dinner.

    dinner last night.
    had the turkey.
    you are right that the place caters to those 80 and over but the food was really good.

  2. Norm S. says...

    ate dinner at 3 g’s. tons of food but the quality is not the best.

  3. JJ says...

    Gramercy Bagel is definitely going to siphon off a load of 3 G’s business. Gramercy is going to soon start a dinner business, its breakfast and lunch business is great.

      JJ, Gramercy’s dinner food isn’t as good as 3 Gs, thats says a ton because 3Gs is fair at best.

    Dinner at 3 G’s.
    Quanity over Quality.
    I had a deli platter which had to be sent back because all that was on the plate was FAT.
    I did enjoy the chocolate bobka muffin but the rest of the food is not very good.

  5. jenna says...

    ate there a few times. best burgers and rachels and reubens
    big portions . . excellent waite service
    had a turkey croquette that was out of this world.. turkey and stuffing and apples .deep fried with gravy and mashed potato and veggie
    yes, the crowd is elderly.. its close to Kings point an elderly retirement community
    but not a problem. . nice people

    I have eaten 4 times here. For some reason my parents who are in their 80s love this restaurant. The food is FAIR. The service is GOOD. The prices VERY REASONABLE. The only item that I can truthfully say was very good is the chocolate bobka dessert. 3 Gs has a huge following with the fixed budget crowd. All I know is that if it makes my mom & da happy it makes me happy.

  7. benny lewis says...

    food is passable, that’s it.

  8. ARNOLD G. says...

    Jeff, food is ok and priced ok.

  13. Joey C. says...

    Lots of food for the money. That’s the game here. Food is ok but not great.

  14. KSR says...

    You are right on the call here.
    Lots of food for the money but not the best quality.

  15. Alex C says...

    Sorry Jeff I disagree the food is very good.

  16. Jeff E says...

    Lots of mediocre food for cheap money.

    As you probably know I’ve been a Jeff Eats’ reader for years. I find that most times you are spot on with your calls.

    I’ve been eating at 3G’s for years and I enjoy its food. Is it the greatest deli that I’ve ever eaten in, NO!, but its food is decent enough , plenty of food and until the recent pandemic was priced right. Right now, it looks to me like 3G’s prices have DOUBLED in price since 2020.

    Your original call was correct the food was basically just okay, but the 2x the price makes its food now way overpriced.

    By the way, one of your other readers here mentioned the joint’s chocolate babka. It’s still the best thing on the menu.
