What You'll Get
Unlike a sand witch, a sandwich doesn't have the power to turn men into sand and sand into poisoned glass. Let a sandwich cast a devastating spell on hunger pains with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of deli fare at The Route 58 Delicatessen in Virginia Beach.
The massive menu provides hunger-hampered diners with mounds of tasty deli fare that’s been proven to instantaneously calm grumbling stomachs and town-pillaging dragons. An authentic NYC-style deli, The 58 showcases owner Jeff Goldberg’s decades of expertise gleaned from stints at some of the finest delis around, including New York’s Katz's Delicatessen. A wide variety of hearty selections are offered, including potato pancakes served with sour cream and applesauce ($5.99), matzo ball soup ($4.99 for a bowl), super-sized Reuben sandwiches with corned beef and pastrami ($14.99), all-beef natural-casing hot dogs ($3.50), and chopped liver ($11.99). Desserts are brought in from New York’s Carnegie Deli, such as strawberry cheesecake and lemon coconut cake.
Easily transportable, deli eats are the ideal lunchtime meal. They cover a variety of food groups in every bite without annoying utensil requirements, prep work, or overnight marinating. Sample a heaping helping of tantalizing deli fare while soaking up the jovial atmosphere at the restaurant. The welcoming surroundings inspire diners to kick back, relax, and nosh on a piled-high sandwich instead of feasting uncomfortably in the unwelcoming outside world.

About The Route 58 Deli
The glint of sunlight off the Empire State Building. The Statue of Liberty's outstretched torch. The crack of another home run echoing within Yankee Stadium. New York City's iconic scenery was built by hard-working people who knew the value of an honest day's work and, more importantly, a hearty sandwich to keep them going. Though it may be a little outside of Manhattan proper, The Route 58 Deli replicates the sights and scents of the borough's traditional delicatessens.
Boasting a recently revamped menu, and new extended hours (Monday–Sunday 10:30 a.m.–8:00 p.m.), the Virginia Beach outpost teems with meaty mainstays, from an overstuffed reuben that earned perfect scores during HamptonRoads.com's reuben taste-test to Sabrett all-beef hot dogs whose natural casings sizzle and split with seared-in flavor. Guests can wash down these gargantuan eats with a real New York egg cream or cans of Dr. Brown's cream soda, or end meals with sweet finales including Carnegie Deli triple-baked cheesecakes.
