Pomperdale is the real New York thing. Located just west of the Commercial Blvd. bridge, it plugs itself as “Home of the overstuffed sandwich.” That’s an understatement.

Sandwiches (around $10), are meant for sharing. Corned beef and hot pastrami lovers leave happy with the quality – and quantity – of these sandwiches. Whether it’s because of their chicken salad, turkey-off-the-frame, or any of their other creations, Pomperdale draws a loyal crowd.

They also serve terrific bagels, lox and simple egg dishes for breakfast. Open since the 1970s, Pomperdale hasn’t changed much over the years. It’s a basic interior here with lots of tables (no booths) squeezed into a small area; it’s not the most comfortable of eateries. Customers don't seem to mind. Most who frequent this spot for breakfast seem to know each other making it pretty lively in the morning, comfort aside.

The staff, with requisite gruff New York personalities, takes and expedites orders quickly, so don’t despair if there’s a line. Pomperdale earns my vote for best New York deli in east Fort Lauderdale. Copyright© 2010. Jane Feehan. All rights reserved.
