Andy's Rest. Scorecard: Bogie's Delicatessen Downtown, plus scores

Posted: Updated:

(WMC TV) - A diligent, conscientious and compassionate staff boosted the downtown location of a Memphis deli chain to the Scorecard's High Score of the Week.

Bogie's Delicatessen, 80 Monroe Ave., earned a 98 on its Memphis-Shelby County Department of Health inspection Aug. 29.

"The service here is incredible," said Memphis attorney Jeff Rosenblum, a thrice-a-week patron of Bogie's Deli Downtown. "The food is fresh, and the place is clean!"

Virginia Beach transfers Robert and Elizabeth Renfro opened Bogie's Delicatessen in Memphis way back in 1990. The couple's vision was to bring an East Coast-type deli experience to the Mid-South (here's the link to Bogie's menu. Warning: you WILL get hungry http://memphismenusonline.com/menus/bogies_deli-dining.pdf).

The difference with the Bogie's deli experience is its Mid-South hospitality. When it comes to hospitality, the crew of Bogie's Deli Downtown is a cut above.

"I have a great crew," said manager Janice Allen. "They really do it. I can't do this by myself!"

Customers singled out crew member Veronica Edgeston, who has a silky-smooth voice like a soul music DJ.

She will hand-make your sandwich, then hand-deliver it to your table.

With a free HUG.

"I am the designated hugger," giggled Edgeston. "It's more of a family atmosphere here."

Feel welcome at Bogie's Deli Downtown and fill up on some great food!
