Gourmet Deli

 2 star(s)  (08/18/2013)
“Not what it's cracked up to be. Owner does not treat employees very nice and often disciplines them in front of customers (I've witnessed this more than once). :-(. Not too professional. Muffins are great. Lunch menu sits in counter for too long. Dried out by 12:45. Coffee is awesome in the mo... ”

“Do not eat at this restaurant. I gave them 1 star for everything only because there was no Zero rating available. They are takers of the community and not contributors. Their food is less than edible and the service is deplorable.”

“The food was good BUT, after being told my order would be ready in 15 minutes, I sat and waited for 35 minutes. This was after trying to instruct the guy behind the counter on how to pronounce my name correctly. It may have been helpful if he had chosen not to come to work drunk/high. He advised ... ”

Caribbean Kitchen

“I'm in love with the menu. So many favorites, but the curry goat was the most tender and delectable dish. My son had the curry chicken one of his favorites.

Caribbean Kitchen

“This is a very small place so eating in is not advisable. It reminds me more of a food stand than a restaurant but what it lacks in ambiance it makes up for in flavor. I had the oxtail dinner with rice and beans, salad and collards. The portions are large so you get your money's worth. I also li... ”

“Yeah, the ambience is definately not the best. Not that the service and food makes up for it completely, but I guess osme of us prefer a better environment.
