Q. Do you deliver? Is there a delivery charge?
A. We deliver Monday - Friday, 11am - 1pm to Bismarck and Mandan. Deliveries are restricted to businesses/organizations only. The delivery charge is $10.00 and minimum order is $50 before delivery charge.
Q. Why don't you offer home deliveries or smaller deliveries?
A. There are a couple of reasons. One is the shortage of labor in the Bismarck/Mandan area. The second is the cost of delivery...which has increased to the point where it is no longer practical if you want to keep prices reasonable.
Q. Why don't you use delivery services?
A. I don't trust them. When I serve you my food, it come with my own satisfaction guarantee. Once the food leaves my hands and goes into the hands of someone I do not have control over, I cannot guarantee anything. The food may not reach you in time or have been tampered with, and the customer will hold me accountable...not the food delivery service. A recent study showed that 28% of food deliverers have taken food from an order. NOPE...I want nothing to do with them.
Q. What is the cater fee that is mentioned on the cater menu?
A. The cater fee is a 6% fee charged to orders of $500 and above. The fee covers the extra costs of materials and labor needed for larger orders that require work time beyond our normal hours of operation.
Q. Do you have gluten free products?
A. Yes, though limited. We have gluten free buns for sandwiches and some of our soups are gluten free. It should be noted however that if someone has a severe reaction to gluten that is non-ingested that they use caution when ordering as we are not a gluten free or nut free facility,
Q. Why all the remodeling?
A. CH Deli wants to keep up with the changes in the area, while trying to preserve what we have always done best...make quality food. We hope you like the changes and we have more to come.
Q. Where is the cheesecake?
A. When we purchased Country House Deli in 2013, the prior owners opted not to sell the cheesecake recipe as it was a family recipe. Instead of cheesecake, Country House now offers kuchen made by a small company out of Mercer called Wagner's Wagon.
Q. How do I place a cater order?
A. If you have a large cater order and not sure what you need, please review our website first, then call with your order. Do not call during our lunch hours (11-2) as we are very busy and may not be able to give you the time you require to make a good cater decision.
Q. How soon should I place my cater order?
A. We require a minimum of 48 hours notice...though the farther out you place your order the better. It gives us time to plan and order the food we need. We are a MAKE-TO-ORDER facility, so we do not have products sitting around ready to pick up. We like to make your food as fresh as possible, but this does require some prior planning by the customer.
Q. Do you serve alcohol?
A. Currently, we offer a limited selection of beers. We received our alcohol license on 23 July 2019 and in the process of remodeling to create a kind of sandwich pub atmosphere for the evenings. We hope to be open sometime during the summer of 2020.
Q. Is it true that Country House owns the former Fiesta Villa margarita?
A. Yes. The owners of the Deli owned Fiesta Villa when it closed. The Deli purchased the intellectual property of Fiesta Villa, which includes all the recipes, trade names, etc, and most importantly, the Fiesta House Margarita. Rumors of others owning the recipe are false. The margarita is considered a Trade Secret and belongs exclusively to Country House Deli. We plan to start serving it the summer of 2020.
Please call us at 258-0459 with your orders.
