JB’s Deli in Andersonville

This is my blog day for writing about things I had avoided but have eventually come to love. JB’s Deli in Andersonville is located in a pharmacy which telegraphed “quirky” to me. I walked past the place for a good twenty years, not giving it a second glance.

A neighbor recently showed me a roast beef sandwich from this Andersonville delicatessen. The generous portion of sliced beef looked delicious ensconced in bread, tomatoes, lettuce with a dill pickle and side dish.

I finally made the trip myself. There is limited seating in the deli area, but renovation is in progress for a side room with additional seating.

The menu boasts all of the items you expect to find at a good deli; pastrami on rye sandwiches, lox platters, matzo ball soup and freshly made bagels. The prices are a little high, but the enormous sandwiches are worth every shekel.

Andersonville is about to make Catalpa from Clark to Ashland into a town square. This will undoubtedly increase traffic to this little deli since it is across the street from this future development. In the meantime, when in the mood for a pile of pastrami or beef, head to JB’s Deli for a heroic sandwich. Mazel Tov!
