We heard good things about Larry's so we tried it. We got the Chicken Parm sub special. We were disappointed. The bread was soft and soggy unlike most CP I have eaten The chicken was in pieces maybe 5 smallish pieces smothered in sauce very little cheese. In fact one half of the bun had no chicken at all. Coming from Jersey I know my Italian. Mezalunna down the road is much better so too our favorite Romanos in St Augustine. On a positive note the place was busy and the cold subs looked good.
Larry's uses Boars head meat and their subs are good. I usually by 2 foot longs for my family meals and we are content. My Boys are young men 27 and 22 They have a very healthy appetite and never complain about this supper. They probably use 1/4 pound per 6 inch sub. They charge 7.99 for a full length, you can't compare them to subway there is no comparing to be done. Of course every place could be better to someones taste, but I have no major beefs.
I love the IDEA of Larry's Italian Deli but I think the execution needs some work. Both times I have ordered a Knish, it was not fully warmed through. This past visit, I ordered a Chicken Parmigiana Sub that had clearly been nuked - the sauce was nuclear-hot, the bread was soggy and the breading was soft and separated from the chicken.
This is basically comfort food at it's best... unhealthy, sodium laden, over sized sandwiches and such. Recent tuna sandwich was just overkill and although it tasted quite good, it's more quantity over quality. Staff seemed welcoming and prices were reasonable.
Best Deli with family hometown atmosphere. Everything fresh at the deli including Larry's homemade roast beef. The Boar's Head meats are cheaper than other chain markets. Anything from fresh mozzarella, olives and salads. They make an awesome breakfast sandwich on a kaiser roll.
Subs are the best in the county with fresh bread and all the fixings you could want. Larry and Lillian put up fresh homemade Italian dishes in their frozen case. That comes in real handy on a busy schedule - the lasagna is excellent. Homemade sausage can't be beat.
They also added fresh breads, homemade rainbow and black/white cookies, turnovers and Danish. Desserts are baked fresh everyday and are the best !!!
They also do catering for office or home parties. Dine in plenty of seating or take out. Phone or fax order in ahead to save time. Larry's Italian Deli with great, friendly service is well worth the trip. We drive 25 minutes to enjoy the best deli in Flagler County.
