Best Wurst: Schiller’s German Delicatessen

We still love this little converted convenience store of a deli tucked into residential South Tampa. The owners, the Trunk family, are as authentic as the food here, with your order often greeted by a thick German accent. Sure, we could rave about the sandwiches, the rye bread that envelops the thin-sliced Westphalian ham. But it is the wurst that is the best. Schiller’s gets them from three suppliers in Long Island, Milwaukee and Chicago: garlic knockwurst, bratwurst, weisswurst (veal and parsley) and German weiners. 4327 El Prado Blvd., Tampa, 813-839-6666.
