During pick-up basketball games, some players resort to spinning deli meats atop fingertips to hypnotize opposing teams and convince them to leave the court to bake loaves of rye. Stock up on a baller's secret weapon with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of deli fare at Miller’s Delicatessen in the Greenspring Shopping Center. This Groupon is not valid for alcohol.
Cut from the cloth of 1930s-style delis, Miller’s Delicatessen transports diners back to a simpler time of tastiness with a bevy of comforting dishes and scrumptious sides. Like shopping for a wedding dress, visitors enjoy a buzzing, cafeteria-style atmosphere while ordering from the counter and munching on juicy, flavor-doused meats amid a stylish dining room lined with celebrity photos. Scan the menu for traditional dinners such as the roast-beef brisket with brown gravy ($11.99) and grilled liver and onions ($10.99), or keep high-five dispensers occupied with a corned-beef and pastrami sandwich ($9.99) or meatloaf and bacon sandwich with fried onions and jack cheese ($9.99). Savory soups such as the matzah ball ($3.69) or cold borsch with sour cream ($3.69) will help meaty bites slide friction-free down to blissfully satisfied stomachs.
A home-style meal away from home is not only enjoyable, it sparks comforting memories of steamy loafs of meat and grandpa’s stories of digging trenches in stylish trench coats during the trench-digging fad of ’49. Enjoy hearty fare and stimulating sips at Miller’s Delicatessen while reminiscing about the good ol' days, when flat screens kept out mosquitoes and high-definition viewing meant reading a dictionary while perched atop a tree branch.

- Great food in a friendly (if sometimes frenzied) atmosphere. – Michelle Gienow, Baltimore City Paper
- It is the last real deli in Baltimore. – Fred Murtz, Urbanspoon
