Protzel's Delicatessen Restaurant Review

: Folks drive from near and far to savor Cousin Harold’s chopped liver at this Jewish deli in Clayton. And they might pick up Rachel’s roasted turkey Reuben, Ronny’s corned beef on rye or Mrs. Gladney’s peppered beef and salami with Swiss. Protzel’s has been around since the 1950s, long enough for a third generation to be running day-to-day operations. There’s still no décor to speak of except a few wise-cracking signs. The scattered tables inside and out aren’t close to adequate on the weekends, so most folks get their fare to go. Salads and slaws are made on site daily and so is the chicken soup during cold months; if you’re craving a fix in the summer, you’ll have to buy it frozen and heat it at home. And when placing your order, don’t forget to ask about the knish flavor-of-the-day.
