*****  Pomperdale New York Style Deli, 3055 East Commercial Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33308, (954) 771-9830.

The Pomperdale Deli has been in business for nearly 40 years. I found this joint about 16 years ago and have probably eaten lunch there ar least 50 times.

If you like good…no make that great deli and appetizing…then this joint is for you. No waiters…order at the counter…No checks, just tell the guy at the register what you had.

This is probably the best “kosher style” deli in South Florida. As a matter of fact, it may very well be the best deli in Florida. The food is absolutely terrific.  This joint is open 7 days a week…Monday-Saturday 6am-5pm and Sunday 6am-3pm.

Don’t miss this joint…it is a one of a kind.

    Jeff. As I told you today, I have been going to this deli for over 25 years.
    The corn beef and pastrami are without any peers in So FL. Quite simply the best of the best. On Wednesday they serve huge beef briskit sandwiches that are also great.

    Went a few days ago. Absolutely delicious hot pastrami sandwich @ $7.95. Had some Cel-Ray soda, closed my eyes, and I was back at Katz’s. First Katz sandwich I ate was 1960 or before. This pastrami sandwich is as good as Pastrami Queen’s in Boca. The old Rascal House was very good but gone now. For me the best (only?) real Jewish pastrami within reasonable driving range of Coral Springs is Pomperdale and PQ in Boca. I prefer the Pomperdale’s atmosphere and there was more pastrami in the sandwich

    Great blog Jeff!

    Sy Ginsberg Corned Beef.
    This is the secret! Anybody can have a good CB sandwich, but you have to spend the $$.
    Pomperdale is the best because they use the best product.

    One of the best pastrami sandwiches I have ever had. Their corned beef is also awesome.
    This hole in the wall always gets the job done.
