Default Ruby's Deli

It looked like it was closed but it was open today...
Decor, quaint yet functional and clean
Service : very good, the teenage goth girl was hesitant in ringing out..
She's family....I thought she had anemia she was so pale...lol
The owner (whose name is not ruby) used the phrase
"Hoagie Bun" which perked up my ear... That's an East coaster term
Of course I'm wrong they're from Wisconsin originally, He's an Air Force Retiree

Food: a deli is judged by its potato salad...and it's Reuben.
And this one has a mustard potato salad that came from my Ma's kitchen
Delicious... I was detoured from the Rueben as The Italian Sandwich was on sale it was a commercial hoagie roll but there are options, it has lettuce leaves not chopped handfuls, there was a delicious giadaria or pepper medley relish, fresh sliced tomatoes and STACKED fresh sliced meats...
Left me full and my wallet a little lite.. 8.50 for a filling meal
Ok a delicious meal and that just lured me away from the local subway

So anyone else want to give it a try?

Well, it "looks looks" good to me (LOL) - maybe they'll be open sometime when I'd be likely to come through there - Avery's never was. I wish someone would serve up a Chicago-style Italian sausage sandwich, or the roast beef swimming in juices, slopped on a big hoagie roll. Man, I haven't had either of those since I left in Chicago 40 years ago.

Edit....
And they are closed on Sunday
* here's a neat thing, they'll sell all of The salads at a discount Saturday rather than throw them out Saturday night

Chicago beef sandwich vs Philly Steak...
I know they have a Philly steak...don't know about the Chicago

A Philly sausage has mild Italian sausage with onions and red and green julienned peppers on a long roll...it's called an Amoroso roll from the Philly bakery of the same name.
I know there's two steak sandwich places in the Lehigh Valley that do daily runs to Philly to get those rolls a round trip of over 80 miles...it's worth it.

I wonder if its any different from a Chicago Italian sausage sandwich...

I'd layover at O'Hare back in my flying days but Seldom ate any of the local faves..
Those people make weird pizza and put a pickle slice on THIER hot dogs!
Communists!

One really nice restuarant opened in the St. Louis Airport near the USO, Pasta House, a Saint Louis Staple has a quick stop and the food is just a good as the flagship...
Sigh

I really miss a crafted pasta meal...

I'm not an Italian fan - no noodles for me. But I LOVE Italian sausage - I'll hafta try the place just for that. Pasta House was always one of our preferences when we were in Springfield or at the Lake, but I think they're kaput now. All of our usual ones are gone. I'd love to find one who knows what to do with Italian sausage.

Ya gotta get out on the west side, Oak Park or Austin area (Capone's neighborhood) and ask around for those little 12-foot wide,x 100 ' deep "hole in the wall" shops, where the grills and vats were on one side, the counter down the middle, and the customers stood against the wall to order and then to eat. Man, they were to die for, though.

Guess I will have to go through Ruby's Deli soon to see what's up. Sounds good to me.

Naw, I always do a ham and swiss on wheat for a new deli, gives me a base to judge against past examples. They did very well on the basic ham and swiss. Several others on the ad board I must try later. They had several interesting looking sides I suspect I will try.
