There's something to be said for places that don't change. That something is substantial in the case of WD Deli. Wayne Beers and Mike Bobo's shrine to the Caesar salad, their paean to pastrami and panini, their ode to Avocado Delight (with cream cheese, mushrooms and more)... and their décor of commemorative plates and collaged snapshots. None of this ever need pay attention to Instragrammatic trends. A new cookie of the month, fine — though we may stick to the likes of butterscotch with just audacious enough black salt. The three-bean vegetarian chili is as robust as any meated-up version in town. Don't change that one either. The world needs a place for a dependable egg salad, a classic pimento cheese, a tuna salad sandwich "just like Mom's." Even the camo-clad contingent from Fort Sam seems to agree. Word to the wise: the line gets long right before noon. The upstairs air conditioning may not be fully functioning. But outdoor seating is pleasant at most times and service is quick and efficient — essential even for entrenched establishments.
