Abstract
For 29 years Jerry Meyers has screamed and yelled at the customers who came into his deli – the film attempts to explain why people keep coming back for more.

"A top award for the Fastest Camera in the Midwest. To have captured the essence of Jerry and his deli-in-action proves this filmmaker one of the few who can make the documentary a high art form, comparable to the best portraiture painting; and taking it, possibly, one step farther." —Larry Jordan, Judge
