When deprived of flavorful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank-account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of pizzas, sandwiches, salads, and more at Mediocre Deli in Standish.
Mediocre Deli quiets growling guts with a menu of freshly baked breads, crisp salads, and signature sandwiches. The eatery's pizza toppings mingle atop freshly baked plain, garlic-, or beer-flavored dough in signature pizzas ($8.19 for a 10") such as the Priscilla, a marinara-free pie sprinkled with blue-cheese dressing, buffalo chicken, Red Hot sauce, and cheese. Play meal creator by building your own pizza ($5.95+) with one of about 20 topping options or by bringing an Easy-Bake Oven to the deli. Sandwiches such as in-house roasted turkey ($5.79–$7.79) and egg salad ($3.99–$5.99) lay nestled between two slices of freshly baked ciabatta, marble-rye, or wheat bread, and the Mediocre salad⎯a crisp collection of romaine, grilled chicken, blue cheese, mandarin oranges, and pecans ($5.59)⎯provides a leafy meal fit for veggie fans or livestock looking for a change of pace.
Mediocre Deli & Pub
The food at Mediocre Deli & Pub isn’t mediocre; in fact, it’s “well above mediocre” according to the Portland Press Herald, which added that its unique name is “a badge of deli confidence, eye-catching and ironic.” Owner Aaron Plourde and his wife Cindy may have a sense of humor about the deli’s name, but his deli’s food is downright serious.
They stock their sandwich station with five kinds of cheese and a huge variety of fresh breads. Design-your-own pizzas heap savory meats, cheeses, and veggies atop freshly made crusts. They also dish lighter eats, such as salads, kids' meals, and Maine-style italian sandwiches.
