Old Time Meat & Deli

Old Time Meat & Deli is one of the best treasures in all of Champaign.  They have, hands down, the BEST twice baked potatoes I have ever had.  Seriously, I could eat them everyday.  Not only do they carry the best meat, they offer a pretty amazing service perfect for those "I am too tired to cook" days.  Every (week) day after 4PM Old Time has meat off the smoker. It's the perfect drive-thru alternative (sorry you have to get out of your car though.)  All you have to do is walk up to the counter and let them know how much you want, grab a twice baked potato (or two) on your way to the check out and you are one drive (and thirty minutes cook time for the potato) from the most delicious meal.  They have a pretty decent collection of assorted sides and beef house rolls and spreads, that's right THE beef house rolls.  So, next time you want a "this tastes like it took all day" dinner in under an hour, head to Old Time.
