It's a little hole in the wall, local to Gulf Gate. If you love ruebens, put it on your list. Their ruebens are amazing!

Wish we would have known about this place sooner. The owners are really nice and friendly. You can actually drink at the bar next door while you eat your meal from this place. What a great concept. We will have to go back again some day because I heard that the corned beef is even better than what we had.

The sandwiches were fresh and hearty, served with a pickle. Reasonably priced for the amount of meat u get. Pretty good fair. Convenient delivery to the bar next door.

We've visited this restaurant twice. Both times, we were very pleased with the food. Their Tuesday special is a corned beef sandwich. We share one and order a small fry besides. This is always more than enough for two of us! The owner, Rocky, is a great guy and very personable. Makes you feel at home. As you've probably guessed,... More

This place lives by the sign on the wall: "Good food isn't cheap and Cheap food isn't good". Good sandwiches and soups. Always go here when visiting our son. Special people running it and special place

I live in Sarasota and I just discovered this delightful family run establishment. The owners are so sweet and the Ruben is literally voted the Best in Florida, so of course that is what I had..... omg!!! Melts in your mouth and the corn beef is so tender that it just falls apart. We decided to order our spiral ham... More

We stopped in for lunch after seeing the sign outside "voted the best Ruben". It's a small restaurant with a few tables inside. We weren't real hungry so we decided to split a philly steak & cheese with a order of small fries. They split the sandwich on two plates for us and brought us a huge plate of UNsalted... More

I passed this place a hundred times but never set foot inside. Normally I'm a weekday salad for lunch guy. But this being a Saturday, the promise on their sign of "Voted The Best Reuben in the State of Florida" was too compelling to pass up. The interior is a small, bright old timey deli/luncheonette. The woman smiling behind the... More

That's what the sign on the awing says, and we agree! We always make Rocky's place our first stop when we get back to Florida -- we like the corn beef rueben. Always excellent. We've probably introduced a dozen visitors to HH & DD, and all of them make it a regular destination.

I personally don't care for rye bread, so I typically have steered clear of a Reuben sandwich. While at HH&DD's counter I made that comment and Rocky came to my rescue with a "no worries" and a selection of other bread types. I'm now a Reuben on wheat fan!! Some say the best Reuben in Sarasota is at The Gulf... More
