Is Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray Soda available in Charlotte?

Jibe Oct 17, 2012 02:53 PM

My Son's girlfriend raved about this, and said she would get it in Brooklyn, NY on visits. Apparently, it's readily available in Jewish delis there, but not common here. I know I can get it on Amazon, but wondering if anyplace in Charlotte has it. I'd like to pick it up for her next visit.

    I'd call Katz Deli and see if they have it. Harris Teeter will also special order items.

      Thanks, I did find out that Gleiberman’s Deli in Charlotte carries it. Looks like I'm set.

        They definitely have it at Katz's. I've seen it there.

        Katz NY Deli in the Arboretum Office Park carries it as well.
        As long as you are there have the best corned beef sandwich in Charlotte!

          Thanks GFL. Looks like I can get it closer to home. But this is a good reminder to stop in at Katz's. I've heard it has a great corned beef sandwhich. My son's girlfriend says that te Cel-ray soda is like gingerale, but with a celery flavor. Looks like I'm due for a corned beef & a Cel-ray at Katz's . Thanks for the input

                Thanks. I was at Common Market last night & picked up a few. I'll be shipping them off to ashevile this week. So how do you llike the new "california" style back-in parking along Commonwealth Ave, in front of Common market?

            Definitely +1 for Katz. Now I know where I'm going for lunch.

              They also do a darn good Rueben Sandwich. Usually I cant decide which to go with , corned beef or the pastrami so I get a combo with both. Good Stuff!!!

                So you had to throw another one ito the mix, eh? I'll have to bring a friend & share so I can try both. I really like a good Reuben.
