Pomperdale New York Style Deli Restaurant Review: Almost the whole world thinks of the Sloppy Joe as hot ground beef, but for metro-northern New Jerseyans, the sandwich is a much more succulent triple-decker deli combo of any two cold cuts plus, often, Swiss cheese, tomato sometimes, and always---most importantly---coleslaw and Russian dressing on rye. The guy behind the counter at this 30-year-old institution is from South Orange, where Jersey's Joe was invented way back in the big band era, so you'd better believe that though the name's different, the Joyce sandwich here---roast beef (or they'll sub turkey, pastrami, slaw and Russian) is a great ringer, and fab football-watching fare. Or, there are potato pancakes as well as the full range of usual NY/NJ Jewish deli classics. Service is no-frills (and honor system): grab a booth; order and pick up at the counter; pay on your way out, after telling the register operator what you ate.
