I finally made my way to the little shop myself earlier this month. I ordered a McCarthy Sandwich, loaded with slow roasted beef, onions, lettuce, tomato, mushrooms, peppers, provolone cheese, and horseradish mayo. The meat was juicy and perfectly done and the veggies were fresh, and the soft homemade bun was icing on the cake. I came here with pretty high expectations and I was not disappointed.

Of course, I had to have some pierogies, especially the sweet pierogies, because I like how they gave this classic a twist and, well, I have a sweet tooth. (*blush*) I ordered three Apple Mango and three Strawberry with Chocolate Sauce (a seasonal special). The homemade pierogie dough was fried just right and the fillings were simple yet worked nicely.

What a great deli! Can't wait to try some of the other sandwiches and pierogies at Szmidt's.
