Went back to Pine Deli this weekend. Still soooo good - love the White Pizza and the deli salads....very good.
Although tucked a little bit out of the way, find this place if you are in Pine (Its just past the fire station.) Whether you want to eat in, or take out for a picnic, you won't be disappointed with the wide array of yummy sandwiches. The place is tiny and they can get backed up if a large group comes in....but its worth the wait. FYI- our parents live in Pine and this is the place the locals go.
Here is the real, honest-to-goodness scoop on the Pine Deli: It is simply the best place to eat in the little town of Pine! It is very popular with the locals (The mark of a good restaurant!), so if you go in right at noon, expect it to be busy. My Grandma, brother and I have made countless trips up to Pine to put more wares in her booth in one of the antique shops up there. Every trip, without fail, we stop at the Pine Deli for lunch. These are the best sandwiches on the face of the planet. Better than Subway for sure; the meat is real, fresh-sliced right in front of you and you get a lot of it, too. (We always walk out of there stuffed) I'm not a huge lunch meat fan and the Pine Deli is one of the few places where I know it's the real stuff, so I love it. I get turkey, my brother loves the ham sandwiches and Grandma's favorite is the chicken salad on marble rye. If it wasn't great, we wouldn't keep coming back all these years! My brother has a weird order and they get it right every time, and they don't mind going the extra mile for his unusual ham sandwich. Super, super friendly owners. My Grandma's been coming here with us for years and years; they know her well and her order by heart, and ours as well. Never before have I had a place I could order "the usual" from; I thought that was only in movies! Up until a few years ago they ran it all by themselves but when it got more popular they had to hire more folks to help out, so depending on who you get, they could be anywhere from a little bit "meh" to super friendly and helpful. They don't have the license to actually serve alcohol; the policy is BYOB for those who are fans of the drink. It's a small business run by two nice people, and it seems fairly obvious that they don't have 100 ovens in their tiny little restaurant to be cooking a million things at once; there will be a bit of a wait for things like pizzas because they only have so many ovens. If you don't have any patience to wait a few minutes, you don't really have any business stopping in a sleepy little town like Pine anyway... YES, there is a porta-potty across the parking lot, but unless you're some kind of stuck-up snob, honestly-- I promise-- you'll survive. Personally, I don't recommend using it unless it's an emergency, so I'll let you in on a little secret; there are absolutely lovely restrooms in both the antique shops neighboring the Pine Deli on either side, so use one of those instead and have a look around, too! ****Anyway, you don't go to a restaurant for the restroom, you go there to eat, and for eating, I recommend the Pine Deli. Don't knock it until you've actually tried it. I've eaten there easily a 100 times, and I've never had a bad experience with the food or the staff. So friendly, relaxed atmosphere, great food- I sincerely hope you make as many great memories there as I have.
Place is great! I had the Pastrami Burger and it was delicious! They also have a good selection of beers on tap.
A good place to watch football on a Sunday afternoon. They have 3+ tables of Texas hold'em. Lots of TVs dedicated to the Cardinals. Good wings and sliders.
Sidewinders is THE place to go to in Pine. Fall off the bone ribs on Friday. Taco Tuesdays! Awesome burgers, wings, you really can't go wrong. And then there's Karri. I swear she must be psychic. If she knows your "usual", it's already half way to your table by the time you sit down and then it's like she knows the moment your ready for a refill. Heidi is a fantastic waitress. she is priceless. Always, always has a smile on her face.
Amazing find on a recent drive around AZ. We happened upon the Randall House on a drive. We stopped in for lunch with or puppy. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the cool air and ice breeze. For being I a small town the menu has enough to accommodate any taste. The homemade buttermilk herb dressing was yummy and the fresh lemonade was very refreshing.
I stopped by Randall House on a motorcycle ride. One of the members called ahead and told them we were coming, so they had tables all ready for us - that was really nice. It took a while for the food, because they were totally swamped with customers. I thought the endless refills of coffee and tea were very nice and the breakfast was very good. I will definitely stop by again on my next ride through Pine.
Always tasty and a core part of every trip to pine we take ... go here and relax
Hot stuff/Texaco is the worst place in the area by far, I wouldn't spend a penny on anything from there. Awful people run the place and it really shows though their food it's awful tasting. I did give them a second chance and me and my family got sick. Every time I went there weather if it was for snacks or just gas the service seemed to get worse until I stoped going, I don't understand how such rude people can have jobs. The manager (Owners daughter) is the rudest, flat out worst person I have ever met.
