The Beef Brothers Deli Stop

222 N. Charles St., (443) 857-6328,

After meandering our way down to Charles and Saratoga streets and wandering down a few dead-end hallways, we found the Beef Brothers’ bright deli counter welcoming, though devoid of customers. In 10 minutes and for 25 bucks, we had our breakfast, plus lunch for the interns. We were disappointed to open our egg sandwiches ($2, $3.29 with sausage) and find not a fresh, fluffy scramble spilling out of the bread but rather eggy hockey pucks, slices of American still melting on top. The bread was a bit soggy after being wrapped hot in foil; the same complaint was made of the Chick’wich ($6.99), a dryish chicken breast on a kaiser roll with Swiss and barbecue sauce, and of the reuben ($6.99), which oddly came with the Thousand Island on the side, but which was ultimately tasty, packed with piping hot corned beef and sauerkraut. The ingredients for a customizable salad ($4.99 for a regular) were colorful and fresh, with standard choices of veggies, proteins, and cheeses and the option of various meats and deli salads (add $2.49 for meat). The staff is friendly and warm (offering to deliver to us next time), the menu expansive, and the breakfast served all day, making this a perfectly serviceable stop for the many office workers and passersby in the area. Plus, pickles with everything.
