This isn't exactly the cheapest deli in town, as its location might imply. However, P.D. Johnson's has going for it what most sandwich chains don't: personal service and a gimmick that doesn't involve some guy who lost weight eating only their product and who is only filmed from the mid-torso up. The selections at P.D. Johnson's are called Johnsons, as in you-know-what. In a bit of loop-the-loop, their franks are called wieners. The most praised of the Johnsons include the Don Johnson (roast beef, turkey, swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato and spicy mustard) and the Willy (roast chicken, swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, pepperoncini and Tabasco). Ploy or not, the deli is an Uptown favorite.
