New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
As Jewish delis shutter all over South Florida - and New York, for that matter - Zinger's Deli serves as a reminder of why we loved them in the first place. From the guy behind Pastrami Queen that closed its doors in November 2010, the deli has resurrected to allow Gary Zinger the opportunity to once again serve up the best Reuben around. Made in-house, the corned beef on rye, with Thousand Island dressing and sauerkraut made in-house is the stuff of dreams.
Newish digs have an old-fashioned feel, with vinyl booths, shiny chrome, and an old-school menu with press-in letters that hang over the line. Watch as cooks slather mayo on tall sandwiches, scramble eggs for a breakfast sandwich, or slice a giant piece of coconut cake. Zinger's Deli is a homey spot that transports diners to a bygone era. by Melissa McCart
My husband has had gastric bypass & can literally only eat certain foods/portions. He asked to have a small amount of chicken salad as his meal.

My husband has had gastric bypass & can literally only eat certain foods/portions. He asked to have a small amount of chicken salad as his meal. The waitress argued they are not allowed to do that as deli items can't be in the dining area (odd rule). She offered the platter or sandwich which he can't eat half of the items, let alone the amount of food. He explained it's a huge waste of food.
The manager then came over & proceeded to argue with my husband that it's against their policy to have any deli items in the dining room. My husband advised him of his issue & he refused to accommodate at all. So my husband left. We had a full table & he felt it was worth losing customers over this. We even offered to pay separately at the deli counter then have him rejoin the table. The manager said he'd be asked to leave.
We have always liked this place before but, now will never return.
I'm going to be sure to let everyone I know in Boca to NOT come here.
Tips from foursquare
Try the noodle soup
My husband has medical reasons to only eat certain foods. He asked for a small portion of chicken salad as his meal. This was not allowed, even offered to pay separate, told to leave instead. No help.
