At the western tip of Miracle Mile in Vero Beach Fl, Giordano's is tucked away in the corner of a little shopping plaza. But don't let the location fool you, this Deli packs a mean sandwich and so much more.
When I walked in the door one of the first things I noticed was owner/operator Gizella Bozsik hard at work making homemade meatballs! That's right.... HAND ROLLED and HEARTY meatballs!
There was no doubt in my mind, I was about to have a serious encounter with an epic cuisine!

Sounds like the making of a good joke, but it's not! Tubby's All American Sub Shop draws a plethora of people in looking for a great lunch at a great price. Filled with hard working people from our community Tubby's at lunch time is a busy place... not to mention the phone ringing off the hook! As busy as this lunch hour is, you might think you were in a New York City sub shop... only filled with the hard work of the great people of Vero Beach!
Walking in, Tubby's smelled of fresh bread and freshly cut veggies. This aroma always lifts me off my feet! I'm a sub guy, what can I say! Looking over the menu I decided to try one of Tubby's signature sandwiches, A large Uncle David! Rare and tender roast beef topped with Swiss, fresh tomatoes, Alfalfa sprouts, avocado and Parmesan cheese, this sub took "refreshing" to a whole new level! Now I mentioned this sub was large... but I mean MASSIVE! Not only was it longer that twelve inches, but loaded down with the goodies! This sub, with a coke, was $11.17, which was well worth every penny! I don't know about any of the county workers I saw in there, but when I was done eating this massive sub I was so full I wanted to go back to the office and take a nap!
I do believe this is the BEST sandwich shop in town yet... Need I say more?

Barefoot Cafe is a must try if you have not already! Though this eatery is small, what it lacks in size it triples in character! I actually wanted to be there the moment I walked in the door. The staff were delightful, engaging, and funny! They made my guest and I feel right at home as we waited to order and awaited our delicious lunches.

BBQ, Burgers, and Ice Cream is their catch, but Dilly's is so much more! Soon to be serving breakfast, this establishment has a well rounded menu and has an atmosphere for the whole family. The service was friendly and welcoming! I walked in and said it was my first time and the wonderful young woman behind the counter began suggesting some of the staple "Must Try" meals.
My choice for lunch today was the good ole' Cuban Sandwich. The Cuban is a favorite of mine and I must say this one rates with the best. The sandwich was a perfect warm and melted delight of deliciousness. The ham and pork were excellent cuts. I don't recall chewing on the smallest piece of grizzle or fat. The cheese was melted throughout the meat to make for an effective savor with each bite. Now, I'm not one for toasted bread, but this bread was toasted to perfection! It was the perfect combination of crunch and softness. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the toasted bread. The fries (sold separately) were seasoned to perfection and more than I could eat. Needless to say, I left full! The only downside to this meal was the cost. The sandwich alone was almost $8 but well worth it. The fries and drink were sold separately and so it brought my total to $13.11. This is a little more than I like to spend on a lunch but leaving full and satisfied is always a thumbs up to me.
Outweighing the cost, the great taste and awesome atmosphere gives Dilly's

With a small menu of lunch items, this little sidewalk eatery is great for contractors or workers coming in and out of the hardware store or your average home project person looking for a tasty lunch. Hot Dogs, Hamburgers, Sausages, and Subs... there are great choices to fill that lunch time appetite!
I decided on the Philly Cheese Steak. The sandwich a alone was reasonably priced at about $6. The smell coming from the grill while it was cooking was intoxicating. But when I got it back to the office and opened it up I was a little disappointed at what wasn't there.... STEAK! The sandwich was delicious, it just lacked substance. With drink and a tip I spent about $9. I don't mind lunch prices in this range, but they better be filling... this, sadly, as good as it was did not fill my hunger.
Due to high cost and low substance, Indian River Lunch Box gives the Sidewalk Grill a

Another great gem tucked away in a gas station, Joseph's Pizzeria is an eatery that you will not regret filling your tank and your belly at. Walking in and sitting down at the table you don't even realize you are in a convenience store. Like many fabulous pizzerias, the walls are hardened with bricks and the air is softened with the sweet and savory smell of serious business!
Seeing the RedWing on the menu, I thought I might try the champ. As it was laid before me the aroma was intoxicating. Grilled chicken swamped in mozzarella cheese and red peppers in a flat grill toasted wrap! The wrap was not heavy laden with sauce to make it taste better nor did it need it as the juices from the peppers were an authentic non-overpowering taste that was a slap shot to the taste buds! This wrap was an explosion of goodness that, with an abundance of fries, was a filling lunch that didn't leave me feeling as if I would be regretting the deliciousness later.
The meal was towards the high side of the Lunch box price range with it being just about $11 including drink, but not including tip for the wait staff. There were plenty of other items on the menu that would have better fit in the Lunch Box range, yet I had to go for the champ and it was worth it!

I ordered a hot pastrami fully loaded with all the trimmings. The veggies were fresh and the meat delicious! It was served on soft untoasted bread just the way I like it. Some enjoy the toasted harder breads, but I do not. With yellow peppers and jalapeno peppers on it there was a sweet and spicy blended taste with refreshing juicy tomatoes and pickles.
Not only was this enormous sandwich suburb, but it was also filling and reasonably priced at around seven dollars. Definitely a rescue for anyone in need of a good lunch.
It is with great pleasure that Indian River Lunch Box gives Vero's Heroes a rating of
