Pascarella Brothers is the best!

The soup at Pascarella's is homemade every day--I especially like the Norwegian Celery and the Minestrone (it's the way Gino's Italian Mom makes it). The store is part of what makes Chatham so great...I dare you--go in twice and by the third time they'll know you by name and what your favorite sandwich is!

Hickory Tree!! Sloppy joes are awesome and I have even shipped them to friends who have had them at our house and are now fans! Service is great and catered foods are terrific also. You can't go wrong with anything they make!

Fairmount country store is the best. A nice hometown atmosphere where all of the guys have real kitchen training. They always have the freshest product and use the best ingredients around, even their bread is top notch. They also have hot items and are open for dinner tues through fri. I highly reccomend that you stop by try them out.

Pascarella Brothers by a mile. The most delicious meals and the best service.
Chrissy Ann February 29, 2012 at 01:34 AM
Pascarella Brothers. All day. Everyday.

If you want delicious and freshly made food, drive to the Fairmount Country Store and order anything on the menu. There are not many places where you can enjoy homemade specials or classic favorites. You can grab a fast meal at the counter or settle in at a table. It's real food and it's really good.

Anytime you need anything they will have your back even if it's a last minute order! they are certainly the best around :)

While I actually enjoy mostly all of these places, pascarella bros def beats out hickory tree. Also is the European market even in business? And is the country store really a deli. Love the place but am thinking it would be considered more of luncheonette or something along those lines especially with the catering they do.
Nancy February 29, 2012 at 03:45 AM
I vote Hickory all the way!!! They have it all. Everything is homemade on site. If you haven't tried it, you should. Great service, friendly people
Joe February 29, 2012 at 12:55 PM
Whenever I'm in town I ALWAYS go to Hickory! Nobody makes sloppy joes like they do. Simply the best.
Barbara February 29, 2012 at 01:57 PM
Whenever I have a party Hickory Tree is my caterer. Everyone raves about the food. All homemade and very fresh. i am never disappointed. Party platters are great too! Need a last minute party joe, no worries, Hickory will make it for you.
JMM February 29, 2012 at 04:23 PM
Of course their sloppy joes are good, they learned from the BEST @ Hickory Tree
lisa February 29, 2012 at 05:03 PM

Jes February 29, 2012 at 05:59 PM

Hickory Tree deli has been a wonderful establishment in Chatham Township for 34 years. The food is absolutely amazing and you can not get a better Sloppy Joe anywhere in town. It is a great family run business. You cant go wrong with anything you get there. If you havent been you must try it! You will not be disappointed
Jr February 29, 2012 at 10:52 PM
Hickory tree deli is the best and hillbilly John Olson has the best haircut according to Mike I

I enjoyed Pascarella Bros. when it first opened. After going there a year after opening, I was disappointed that the quality of their sandwhiches had diminished significantly. Went there with a friend and both of our sandwhiches clearly had no effort put into them. The line and ordering process reminded me of going to the DMV. Switched over to Fairmount Country store for my sandwhiches and couldn't be happier. Everything they make is fantastic. Try their new dinner specials or Italian sub. You won't be wasting your time or money.

Pascarella Bros. Deli; is the best. We go there at least twice a week. Sloppy Joe is a great sandwich. Cougar Cobb salad is so fresh. I would definitely recommend..
Stacey Ewald March 01, 2012 at 05:55 AM
Fairmount Country Store is like the Cheers of Chatham but without the beer. I can touch base with my landscaper, say hi to my mailman and hold a PTO Committee meeting, all while eating my breakfast. And the guys are super helpful with catering. I've used them for a couple of not-for-profit events that I ran and they were great about working with a tight budget, and everyone raved about the food.

Pascarellos bros
Karl March 01, 2012 at 06:19 AM
Pascarellos bros deli has made great sandwiches day in and day out. They treat you like family and are truly a pleasure to do business with
Tommy March 01, 2012 at 10:27 PM
There are deli's, and then there is "THEE DELI"!! Pascarella Bros. is simply Chathams best deli hands down!!!! The best food,and the nicest guys!!! There is a reason why the line is out the door every day. Nobody in the world makes a better sloppy joe.
Kathleen March 01, 2012 at 11:03 PM
The Fairmount Country Store... Just try it and you'll understand. Deli is only a small part of what they do everyday. Really missing out on something special if you haven't tried it. It's part of what makes Chatham small town.
Susan March 02, 2012 at 02:08 AM
Hickory Tree is THEE BEST!!! Been around a long time. Once people try it, they keep going back. Any time I have recommended it, I'm told how good it was and that they would go back. Be your own judge and try it for yourself. Got my office hooked on HICKORY TREE. It's convenient to get to and lots of parking.
Jane March 02, 2012 at 01:27 PM
Hickor Tree gets my vote! Best sloppy joes. Great homemade food. Just like mom's if your mom cooked. Good luck Hickory. Would love to see you win. Keep up the great service.
