While I feel for the other writers with regard to bad food (I got sick the other night after eating at a ""nice"" restaurant downtown), I am compelled to defend the White Eagle Deli. I am a professional who works downtown and had heard from several people that it was the place to go. Thus, I have already eaten there three times. My experience has been that the food, while a little on the light side (I'm a big dude), is fresh and good tasting. Also, the prices are unbeatable for the product delivered. Finally, I met the owner and the other owner's mother and they were pleasant and accommodating. The only thing I can think is that the disgruntled writers got there in the midst of transition from the previous owners. Those times can be frustrating as I'm sure most of us would agree. I suggest each of writers contact the owners, mention their negative experience, and try it again. After all, the White Eagle Deli has been around for a long time and I believe the new owners wish to honor its rich history as well as please the neighbors and dedicated patrons.
