The Lucky Dill: Where Manhattan meets Florida meets Sandwich


It may not be Florida’s style, but sometimes you just want a Reuben.  And you can’t beat the Lucky Dill’s Reuben when it comes to quality and variety.  The Lucky Dill is a New York-style deli in Palm Harbor, FL, and Reubens are one of their specialties.  They have Corned Beef Reubens, Combo Reubens, Turkey Reubens, Coney Island Reubens, Reuben Rolls, Reubenettes, Grouper Reubens, and Cuban Reubens; the last two in this list are distinctly Floridian.  Grouper Reubens grace several Florida restaurant menus where traditional corned beef Reubens aren’t available (ex. Frenchy’s).  In the Cuban Reuben, where N.Y.C meets Miami/Tampa, corned beef stands in for pork and ham, Cuban bread replaces rye, and pickles are added along with sauerkraut and Russian dressing.  I’ve never had anything like it.

The Lucky Dill is more than just Reubens.  They can make just about any sandwich delicious, they have an excellent selection of soups and salads, and their bakery case is just beautiful.  If you’ve never had a chance to visit The Lucky Dill in Palm Harbor, FL, here’s your chance to peek into their case of temptations:
