Reviews and food photos from Yelp:
“Wow! So glad I learned about this place from Orlando Weekly! Had their lamb Shawarma last night for my 1st time ever. Oh my.....perfect amount of meat & sauce! Their falafel was perfectly spiced & not too dry & not too moist & served with a wonderful sauce The Tabbouli was the BEST I've ever had! I could taste so many different spices in in. Also had some cabbage salad. That was perfect too! So very many, healthy options here! Service was excellent & extremely friendly! I will be back & very, very often! In fact, going today for lunch! Shawarma time!”
“When I saw that this space on 1st street in downtown Sanford was now occupied by Tony's Deli, I did a happy dance. Tony's was one of my favorites when we lived in downtown Orlando, almost too good to be true to have them here in Sanford. They have the BEST vegetarian stuffed grape leaves, yummy hummus, tabouli like it should be made and falafel that is just right. As vegetarians, downtown Sanford leaves a whole lot to be desired so Tonys is a great addition, truly Xmas came early this year! They also have lamb and other meat dishes for the non vegetarians among us. Portion sizes are generous and there's a really great selection of options. One of these days will have to leave room for their baklava, which looks tempting, am always so full haven't had the chance to sample it (yet). They're also on the less awful parking end of downtown. Please give this new addition to downtown Sanford a try, we hope Tonys will be successful in this new location!”
