Lucky Dill Deli - downtown St Petersburg, FL
When in a deli sort of mood, I head to my own neighborhood spot, Lucky Dill. Lucky Dill is located on Central Avenue in the heart of things. Weekdays are especially busy as it is a popular lunch spot for office workers, which is always a good sign that you will be getting something good. You can grab a spot inside, or there are a number of tables on the sidewalk to watch and enjoy downtown activity.
We tend to stop in for lunch and we always think about ordering something else, but we always end up ordering the traditional Reuben. It is big enough for sharing, depending upon appetite, and it is delicious. Usually, I don't like to get too loaded down at lunch time, or I feel like sleeping the day away, so sharing is perfect for us. They offer some non-traditional Rubens, also. My son, the burger lover, enjoys getting his burgers here, which are very good. Previously, they were only open for breakfast and lunch, but it looks like they have extended their hours later in the evening, which is good for offering more options downtown in the evening for casual dining. Maybe one of these days, I will venture over and try breakfast.
