As you can imagine, Terri-Lynn's is a place I've written about before In fact, if you go to their website, you can see tamales I've consumed and a brisket sandwich I've savored, and even a lunchtime crowd I encountered.
Those aren't all the photos I've taken there over the years. Heck, I once recorded a TV show demo there.
Terri-Lynn's is another of those great places I keep forgetting to share with others. Heaven knows, I already have to jostled elbows to find a spot during lunch at one of the tables or counters in the tight little riestaurant. I've deterined the best time to go is between two and three in the afternoon. That's where I've discovered all sorts of delights. In addition to the lovely beef barbecue with slaw, I've dived into new favorites over time.
The cheese dip does not get the recognition it deserves. Less spice-filled than the original Mexico Chiquito dip, the yellow emulsion at Terri-Lynn's is smooth and satisfying but underpromoted, in my opinion. It's available with chips but is also an option for making any dish on the menu more decadent - including the foot long hot dog, which already comes bedecked with chili, onions and Mary's coleslaw.
shredded beef barbecue sandwich with the same creamy coleslaw and the same somewhat thinnish, a tangy-tart vinegarish affair with just a touch of sweet to it. Most of the sweet comes from the slaw, which retains a goodly amount of crunch. This is comfort barbecue.
But Terri-Lynn's pride and joy comes from its deli. Those house-smoked meats are still starring in a variety of applications - such as the pita sandwich. Diners choose between the house smoked meats (ham, turkey, pork, bologna, salami, corned beef, beef brisket, polish sausage or hot link) to slide into a toasted pita, topped with tomatoes, lettuce and homemade ranch.

That is, if you get there in time to get a slice. After all, when the lunch rush is over, you may be hard-pressed to find a slice. The regulars know how good those pies are.
You can also pick up meat by the pound, and catering is available.
