Rob’s Deli of Chesnee, South Carolina A Small Town Deli Has Big News 11/2018
This is a What’s up Tasty Tuesday short blog with an update to the business of Rob’s Deli of Chesnee S.C. I write this on World Kindness Day and want to pass on my belief that to make this world a better place, we all should be practicing being kind to our neighbors and to our communities.
In a small town, there is a small house, with a small deli that has a big heart. I have eaten there a few times in the past but had not gotten around to a write.
Recently, I learned through a sign in my small-town post office, that Rob’s Deli would need to close if the business did not significantly pick up. I popped in one day this past week and I learned that there would be some changes to the hours, menu, a new dinner menu, and dinner hours. I was told that there is no current plan for closure and that the name of the business may change.
This is a counter order service with their menu on a computer screen and specials on the board. Cans of soda are for sale in an ice bucket and the always popular and I am told, delicious sweet tea is found on a self-serve table. Once the order is placed, the staff brings the food to your table. According to their website, they are using high-quality Boars Head Meat and cheeses. I am told that Rob’s is no longer using Nation’s Bakery of Chesnee for their baked-breads and bagels and have now sourced elsewhere due to business needs.
The Reuben-Grilled corned beef, sauerkraut, 1000 Island dressing, and swiss cheese, served on marbled rye bread. Side choices are chips, fries, pasta salad, and a beverage.
Chicken Salad-Salad-Made in-house and said to be a secret recipe is served on a bed of lettuce. Of course, you may order this as a sandwich.
Rob’s Cheese Steak Sandwich-Layers of London Broil, with marbled blue cheese, french-fried onions, and a sweet mayonnaise that is Rob’s secret recipe, and made in-house, all served on garlic french bread. *Note, this is served with mounds of french fries.

Like so many other travelers, I am a fan of supporting local business when possible and hope that these folks find success. If you are an Upstate S.C. reader give them a visit and let them know that Meg says hi! Celebrate World Kindness Day! Every.Dang.Day, that is given to you.
