Tat's Deli is the cure for east coaster homesickness

Whiz, hots and onions! For a displaced east coaster like myself there's no place better for a taste of home. Even the accents are right.

Everything about the place is east coast sub shop. It's a whole in the wall with crappy linoleum tables and uncomfortable chairs. The menu is huge, but everybody orders the cheesesteak. The proper cheese is 'whiz', and they have it in industrial size cans.

Enough talking. Just look at this:

Yeah, it doesn't get better.

Actually, I go for the chicken, which is a nice concession to the "health conscious". Not that I am, I'm just not big on beef. But the supposed health benefits of chicken over beef are my excuse to get a side of fries.

That's old bay on the fries. It's good. Try it, you might like it.

Also, there's hots (ie, pickled hot peppers) and onions on there. That's the business. Can't praise it enough. New favorite place.
