Roll N Rye - Culver City

I just went there for lunch today, and promptly walked out before even ordering. We were looking for a good lunch place - salads, sandwiches, etc., and have seen this place many times so we figured we'd give it a go. It's a deli, so they have a ton of different foods: lox and bagels, pastrami sandwiches, chili, baked chicken, etc. The atmosphere is basic deli, service seemed friendly, etc.

But their PRICES are unbelievable!! $19 for the "special salad" which is essentially a spinach salad with some salmon on top. Sandwiches range from $11-20, as do salads. A grilled cheese is $7!! And forget getting an entree - they are well over $20.

I can understand if this place offered something special, like organic greens, a wide choice of exotic dressings or gold booths, but give me a break. Their chicken salad sandwich is on what looks like Wonder bread and the food looks like decent cafeteria fare.

The sticker shock was enough to kill the appetite - we went elsewhere.

If anyone else has eaten there and can convince me the food is amazing, I'll give it a chance.
