READERS' PICK: Made to your order, sandwiches in this deli range from liverwurst to prosciutto and everything in between. Get wild with the Wildcat special and eat to your heart's content. The wonder-roast is a perfect quick dinner cooked to perfection, and the deli-salads are fresh and delicious. The only hard part is narrowing down the choices: dolmades, spanakopita, and moussaka or lasagna with artichoke salad and greek olives. All of life's decisions should be so tough. Eat in or take out depending on hunger level or whom you want to run into. It's been said (mostly by us) that you aren't a real Tucsonan until you've found your way to Rincon Market.

READERS' POLL RUNNER-UP: Feig's Kosher Foods, 5071 E. Fifth St. About five years ago I came upon my 85-year-old grandfather in a very excited state. It seems that he had heard about a new deli opening up in town called Schlotzky's. "With a name like that, it's got to be good!" he said. Needless to say, he was more than a little upset when he found out that Schlotzky's was an Italian deli, not a Jewish one like he had thought. Moreover, they didn't even serve corned beef! No one should ever encounter this problem when going to Feig's Deli. Owned by Jack Strauss, a member of Congregation Anshei Israel, it's the closest Tucson has ever--and most likely will ever--come to having an authentic Jewish deli. With a full-service kosher market as well as a sit-down restaurant, Feig's is your one-stop shopping place for all things Jewish. Come for the matzo-ball soup or come for the ultra-lean corned beef, but don't come on Saturdays. Feig's is most certainly closed for the Jewish Sabbath.
