MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Residents and workers have a new restaurant option in downtown Montgomery.
Momma Goldberg's Deli opened this week at 36 Dexter Avenue.
"We've been very busy. We opened on Tuesday of this week, this is our fourth day, and every single day we've had a real lunch rush, a lot of people telling us how excited they are that we've come down here, a lot of people that have been waiting for a lunch place like Momma Goldberg's in downtown Montgomery and now they've got it," Momma Goldberg's employee Dan Peck said.
Peck knows the hunger that people have had for a place like "Momma G's" in the downtown area.
"Yeah this has been in the works for a long time, I can't tell you the specifics on this particular location but there's certainly been a demand," he said.
Even with the hype surrounding Momma Goldberg's and the busy opening week they've had, Peck still manages to keep it simple when explaining what Momma Gs' arrival means.
"We are a casual sandwich place with amazing nachos, great salads, and a friendly atmosphere," Peck said. "I think it's going to be really welcoming to a lot of the businesses that are already making downtown Montgomery fantastic."
He says the restaurant is excited to be in the area.
"We're really excited to help make lower Dexter the place to be," Peck said.
