Many in or out of Katy are familiar with our iconic Midway BBQ. Fewer people are aware of its sister operation Midway Meat Market and Deli, just a short drive down the street. Being in the area today I decided to give it a try.
The environment of the small space is both homey and small town. The look and feel is more what you would expect while on a hunting trip than a big city “deli.” The hunting and fishing trophies scattered about add to this feal. They are located in a smaller shopping center, but the interior is very comforting.
The menu is heavy on burgers, BBQ, and such along with breakfast staples. They also have specials every day of the week. Today being Friday, and never being one to pass up a Philly Cheesesteak I ordered the combo since it was today’s special. Even though I arrived late into breakfast, but not quite lunchtime the counter staff did not skip a beat when I ordered from the lunch menu when most seemed to be still ordering breakfast.
My order came in a reasonable amount of time. The roll was obviously fresh and very soft. The roast beef was some of the most tender I have ever tasted and was well seasoned. The peppers and the rest of the filling added a pleasant contrast in flavors that were far from overpowering. The mac and cheese I had as my side was warm and creamy, but the noodles were not cooked to death.
The next time you are in Old Katy pay them a visit. I doubt you will find disappointment on the menu!
