Looking for lunch after a movie and we ended up at Shlomo’s Gourmet Subs & Deli. They have a large menu of available items and we ended up getting a philly chicken and an Italian lovers to go.
Loren said his was pretty good, but I wasn’t thrilled with mine. I didn’t like the spices that were on the chicken and it was precooked chicken slices which made it rather dry. I guess one of the big draws of this place is that it’s open until 4am. Total bill was $17.

Harr’s Surfside Cafe recently opened in the space vacated by MecaFresh. It’s owned by Harr’s Surf & Turf next door. They don’t have a very large menu, but I couldn’t resist the lobster roll & chowder combo.
Though I did think the lobster roll was a bit on the small side, it was all fresh perfectly cooked lobster meat with just a hint of celery and mayo. This is the perfect lobster roll in my opinion. Nothing to get in the way of the lobster. The chowder also had some nice flavors going on. Loren ordered one of the specials, the spicy pastrami.
I made him get the mac & cheese as his side dish. Though it had a very cheddary flavor, it wasn’t quite creamy enough for my tastes. He said the pastrami wasn’t very spicy, but overall the sandwich was good. Total bill with a drink was $23.

We were over in Dunedin today & stopped for lunch at Delco’s. They still don’t take credit cards, but it doesn’t seem to have slowed their business down at all. There was a line at the counter the entire time we were there. This was the first time we’ve been back since they moved into their new space. We actually ordered the same thing this time as we did the last, a cheesesteak for me and a roast beef sub for Loren.
Loren still prefers the sandwiches at Jersey Mike’s, but I think the cheese steaks here are yummy. We both ended up taking half of our sandwiches home. I still find the way they handle the counter to be a bit odd. You place your order at the register, but you’re not supposed to pay until you leave. It just makes for a bottleneck up front that could be handled so much easier if you just paid when you ordered. Being able to pay with a credit card would also be pretty handy. Total bill was $17 with a couple of drinks.

I was in the mood for a sub for lunch, so we drove over to Largo to Cesarina Deli & Bakery. They have a big variety of cold and hot subs along with some Italian dishes. I went for the California cheese steak.
I couldn’t even begin to pick it up & eat it until I had taken half of the meat off. There was so much of it and it was really flavorful and delicious. It had a wonderful seasoning to it and the bread was fresh and tasty. I was only able to eat half of it. Loren went for the muffalata.
He was only able to eat half of his too. He said the bread was crusted in some really tasty herbs, the deli meat was fresh and the olive spread was tasty too. Overall, some really yummy sandwiches. With a couple of drinks, the total bill was $19. I also ended up spending about $30 in the deli on some meats, olives, a really delicious cannoli, and some other baked goods. I had to buy some of this cake just so I could photograph it.
Definitely check this place out if you’re in the area. The subs are delicious.

Wanted a cheese steak for lunch today, so we headed over to Marina’s in Westchase.
They were running a special today for a 6″ sub plus fries & a drink. I like the cheesesteaks here. The bread is just perfect to hold all the ooey, gooey goodness. Loren got the meatball sub special.
He said it was good too. We both cleaned our plates, not even a french fry left over. Total bill was $13.
