The name says "NY Deli", but there are also some truly "TEXAN" items on the menu. A limited seating area, I prefer to eat there in the "off hours" where there's not a frantic pace going on to service the customers and politely clear the tables. For breakfast I'd highly recommend the Chili/Cheese omelet (the Chili is also great in it's own bowl - beware! it can be spicey at times). Lunch time offers lots of options and if you see a particular meat in the deli section, but not on the menu and the place isn't too busy then ask for the substitution; these folks are great in being flexible! Or, if the day of the week offers the Chicken Fried Steak then go for it!! Dinner has many options too, and don't forget... This is also a Bakery and Deli, so if you want some FRESH meat, cheeses, breads, sweet treats then stop on in and peruse the offerings -- I've yet to be disappointed in the 6 years I've been going there! (I was surprised to see no write-up, so here you go for a recommendation of one of the better, decently priced eateries in Dallas!) It's on Forest Ln between Marsh and Walnut Hill on the North side tucked between two fast food eateries; so don't blink or you might just miss the turn in.
I love this location because it is close to entertainment, restaurants, public transportation. The store is well maintained and I have no problems finding quality vegetables, fruits, meats, etc. Where can you go and buy tilapia and get two free or pork and get one free. I'm from Atlanta and never saw any sales like this. They need to open up stores in Atlanta. If you want something to snack on they have the best wings by far. Standing in line is very much worth the wait especially when you are saving money. Love, Love, Love this store.
I have been shopping here for years. They continue to amaze me how courteous and helpful they are to everyone. I have never shopped at a Tom Thumb that even compared to the friendliness of the Mockingbird store. Everyone says hello and asks if they can help you. After I was in there a couple of times they would remember my name and always would talk to me like we had been friends forever. I have even talked to people who go out of their way to shop at this location.
