absolutely and most definitely!   My favorite, for some 
reason, is Tony's...just up from the railroad crossing on Rt 
22 (or, is it 55?). There is also a good one about .3 from 
the Trail on W. Mombasha Rd. (I believe it is still open). 
They're all good...cuz, how hard is it to make a sandwich? 
And, most have a freezer of Ben and Jerrys...

Hmmm...never heard that...other than a few folks I know 
would call it that BECAUSE of all the road crossings and delis.
