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.

Children’s Menu – grilled cheese, dino nuggets-both with a side choice, and pasta with a choice of sauce. With a price point of $3.99, the meals include a drink.

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.
