Mike's Deli - Old Saybrook

This place had several mentions in other threads but I thought it deserved one of its own.

Originally a deli located at Rt. 1 and Chalker Beach Road, Mike added a sit-down restaurant next door, but because of slow business, the restaurant is now only open on weekends. We opted for take-out sandwiches, and even though he was tending the shop alone and it was near closing time, M. graciously offered to heat up the grill for us. I opted for a reuben, and DW had a cheeseburger. They were both quite good, especially when eaten in the open air at Saybrook Point.

The deli also had a good selection of meats, salads and frozen entrees, but we'll have to try those later.
