Memorial Day Weekend is almost here, and for those of you not jumping on planes or in your car to rush off somewhere away from home, you’re probably gearing up for a picnic or barbeque. Whether the party’s at your house, a friend’s house or at the park, let Benjies Deli do the hard work for you. Besides, Memorial Day weekend is all about remembering those who have fought for our country, still fight for our country or given their lives for it.
Is the party at your house? Call up Benjies Deli the day before to order up a few of their delicious platters. That way you won’t miss any of the sports action that is on the television all weekend. Get Hot Wings or Barbeque Meatballs by the dozen, or choose from one of our many sandwich trays. Want the sandwiches ready to eat? Try the Sandwich Platter or the 16″ Ring Sandwich. Want to give your guests the option of making their own? No problem: order the Cold Cut Buffet, the Brown Bag Buffet, the Smoked Fish Platter or the Lox Platter. (more…)
