The Reuben sandwich. The Lincoln Del was a great place to bring a date after a movie back when I was dating back in the '60s.
The Beef Barley Soup was absolutely the best. It would be so great to have that recipe. Also, I have never found potato salad that tasted as good as the Lincoln Del's did. And the best chocolate frosting in town. I once bought a quart of their chocolate frosting and gave it to my best friend for her birthday. She loved it. I still miss the Del. Nothing in this town even compares to it.
Something they had that no one else has or had: the Spanish omelette. The Del made puffy omelettes, and the Spanish was filled with a tomato/olive spicy concoction. Not Jewish deli food, but a unique taste memory!
The overpriced food. Hopefully, in keeping with the theme, they can overcharge for the cookbook.
I can see and recall the great taste of wonderful cheesecake, best bagels, amazing banana cream pie, and breakfast items like French toast were super! Every day foods like hamburgers and roast beef that was rare were so delicious! Wish somehow, someone would build and begin a new version of the Lincoln Del!
The Lincoln Del was just the best! A few of the favorites were: cheesecake, matzo ball soup (yum!)corn beef on pumpernickel. The list goes on. I'm from SLP and we had the best deli's around. Now they are all gone and I miss them. Oh, and Mr. Overpriced, go to Mac and Don's. I am sure you can afford their cuisine.
Country club sandwich. Cherry cheesecake. Strawberry pie.
But for reubens, I went to Bernie's.
Matzo ball soup, sauteed chicken livers, smoked fish platter, potato salad, cheesecake. And the best baked apples anywhere. What's not to like?
I was an assistant manager of the old Cooper Theatre on highway 12. When I locked up the theatre, I would often go to the "Del" for a drink and a "Brookside" sandwich (they named their sandwiches after golf courses)-I loved their Reuben, too. They also put out bowls of pickled beets as appetizers. Great memories!
when my mom was dying of cancer,I use to stop at the Lincoln Dell to pick up her favorite- Rueben sandwich. We both had the greatest conversations and many happy memories talking with our favorite sandwiches. I will never forget it!!!
