Iron Grate is rolling out one of its most delicious offerings: delectable, house-smoked pastrami. But you can only get it for five days.

Pastrami Week kicked off today (March 16) and continues through March 20.

During the meat-filled celebration, you can order up tender pastrami sandwiches ($16) with add-ons of your choice (brown mustard or Russian dressing for +$0.50 and/or Swiss cheese for +$1).

If you're feeding a whole crew (or just want to make the deliciousness last a bit longer), you can also order meats and accompaniments a la cart.  Pastrami is $32 per pound, with Russian dressing by the pint or quart ($5/$9); and rye rolls for $0.50 each.

And yes, all the usual meats and sides are also available, including hushpuppies, coleslaw, beans, smoked tomato mac & cheese, creamy grits and more. Don't forget to grab a quart of Iron Grate's delicious sweet and sour pickles ($10 for a quart). 

Orders can be placed online for pick-up. Or you can enjoy your feast in the recently reopened Iron Grate dining room.

Iron Grate is open Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
