Hungry for a good pastrami sandwich? Smokey, peppery, moist, tender, hand-cut and addictively delicious?

Then we suggest you skip this place.

But if you love dry, tasteless, commercial meat, sickeningly sweet slaw, and gummy, pasty, microwaved knishes….boy do we have a place for you!

It’s called Tommy Pastrami, and it is to a true New York delicatessen what a loaf of Wonder Bread is to a French baguette.

Normally we at ELV don’t pick on the little guy(s), but this place is a chain, so the gloves are off.

Antiseptic in appearance, staffed with boredom and cooked with all the aplomb of a 7-11 burrito, this is the kind of sandwich meat that can only sell by catering to those who don’t know any different, nor demand any better.*

Which is why it’s located next to the Henderson Auto Mall.

‘Nuff said.

  1. That meat looks more like ham than pastrami. And they should be embarassed serving cole slaw that looks like that. It is supposed to be cole slaw, right?

  2. Nice read. Thanks for this post. Me and my husband used lots of different wine openers throughout the years. I was searching for that perfect one and tried most of wine openers available online. I think the best choice would be Houdini Wine Opener. It’s really easy to operate and does the job perfectly just in few twists. You think I’m kidding you?. You can dig deeper and see for yourself.
