"One of the hidden delights of America's "Rocket City" lies just south of Huntsville Hospital and the so-called "medical district." The reason many people are apt to pass it by is because it is located in a nearly 100-year-old house. One has to look carefully for a ..."   [Read More]

This photo does not do justice to the true richness of the white chili. The broth may be a little too clear for some tastes, but that's in order to let the chicken, beans, and other sumptuous ingredients shine through.

A good mix of Northern deli flair and down-home Southern munchies: a ''Create Your Own'' corned beef on white, bolstered by a dill pickle and a bag of the Birmingham-based Golden Flake potato chips, an Alabama favorite from the days when Crimson Tide  Coach ''Bear'' Bryant pushed them on his Sunday football TV show.

Very simple in nature and not heavily seasoned, allowing the beans and chicken to shine through, the white chili is truly a work of art. What really ties this whole dish together is the generous amount of cheese in it.

Some hail the Duffyburger as Huntsville’s best. As of yet, I‘ve found none better. There's a great beef taste in this hand-formed and flattop (ahhhh) griddled burger. Topped with cheese on a nice fluffy bun, it’s simply great.

They get a simple cheesecake from a local bakery and deep-fry wedges. They top it with whipped cream and chocolate sauce. Fantastic.

The meats in a Baron really complement, rather than compete with, each other. What really makes this sandwich, though, is the nice deli mustard. There's just enough to add some character but not so much as to take over the whole thing. The Baron is ordinarily served on rye.

The lady behind the counter is apparently a co-owner of Duffy's Deli with her husband.  She says the house is about 100 years old, while the business itself goes back to about 1973--a long time before delis were trendy.

A converted residence, Duffy's Deli is a good, comfortable, old-fashioned home-style place where one can relax at lunchtime during a busy day at the nearby hospital or other medical offices.

One has to look while driving along the busy Whitesburg Drive south of downtown to spot Duffy's Deli.  The best approach is to eye the blue sign.
