BALTIMORE (WJZ)  — One Baltimore business is getting ready for a big Super Bowl Sunday.  Attman’s Delicatessen’s mouth-watering food will be enjoyed at Super Bowl parties all over town.

Ron Matz has more from Lombard Street where corned beef is king.

Attman’s is legendary for their corned beef and they’ll sell about one ton of it on Super Bowl Sunday.

“We’re going to sell a ton of corned beef, 2,000 pounds.  It’s a lot of work.  We’ll also sell about a thousand pounds of pastrami and a thousand pounds of hot dogs.  A lot of good stuff and people love it.  Super Bowl Sunday is a time to eat, think about Attman’s, enjoy yourself and have some good food. Super Bowl Sunday, we’re ready for excitement.  We have all our trucks ready.  We’re starting to cook the corned beef.  We have hot dogs and salad ready and we’re hoping for a big day,” said Marc Attman, owner of Attman’s Delicatessen.  “This is our busiest day of the year.  We’ll open at 8 a.m. and from then on until 5 p.m. It will be non-stop with people coming in.”

Four trucks will be delivering Attman’s great food all over town and there will be no time to kibitz.

“It’s very busy. You start cooking at 5 a.m. and cook until 2 p.m.  It’s non-stop, very busy, a lot of meats going out the door.  We cook up corned beef, roast beef and turkey,” said James Holloway, employee.

Besides the great corned beef, there’s turkey, hot dogs, roast beef and more.  They also offer black bottoms for dessert.

For Super Bowl Sunday only, it’s the Attman’s Special, the “Lombard Trophy.”

“We have the “Lombard Trophy.”  It’s corned beef, turkey breast, pastrami, salami, Swiss cheese and garnish it with pickles and olives.  It’s on rye and it serves five or six people. It’s $39.95,” said Attman.

Attman’s has been doing it right for 96 years.  They have been recognized as one of America’s great delis.  This Lombard Street landmark is ready for kick-off.

Attman’s is the oldest operating family-owned Jewish deli in the United States.

    It’s “kibitz” not “Kibbutz”. The first means to joke around or to offer unsolicited advice. The one you used (the second one) means a collectivized farm in Israel.
