Saratoga Deli Roasts Food Critics: ‘Your Opinion is Meaningless’
A popular deli in Saratoga Springs, well known for their delicious sandwiches and homemade soups, has been whipping up more than meals in their kitchen lately. But their latest beef isn't on the menu, and they're only serving it to critics.
In a recent Facebook post, Saratoga's Broadway Deli took a shot at food critics and bloggers who they feel have become too critical of slower service in the restaurant industry. The deli claims that while things appear to be back to normal post-pandemic, they say that the food industry is trying to catch up, and that people need some more patience.

The post was far from diplomatic, but that's in part what makes it so effective. Many of the comments on the deli's Facebook page were by people who applauded management for taking a stance against the trolls. Here's what they wrote:
This isn't the first time the deli has clapped back at customers or even politicians.
Back in May, in a Facebook post designed to inform their customers about what to expect in regards to mask protocol when they come in and eat their food. In that post, they also took a shot at "government" (Cuomo) who they say chickened out on taking a hard-lined, decisive stance writing, "It was a dick move by the government to put the onus of public health on the shoulders of business owners."
While their latest post generated mostly favorable reviews, a few of the comments challenged the owners a bit, suggesting that that it may have bit a bit extra suggesting that customers opinions are meaningless.
