New owners. No passion for the food or the customer. Our last visit had them serving open face roast beef sandwiches with different (less expensive) bread and the roast beef, usually rare, was over-cooked. The pea soup was good but the accompanying chicken schnitzel was...More

Excellent soup and sandwich place. A great place to go to see Kingstonians from all walks of life. The deli foods are fresh and very good. Strong German influence in this deli, which means the donuts are to die for.

Reminiscent of a deli in Prague that we loved! Reuben was delicious, fries were crispy, hot and fresh. Easy process, friendly staff, comfortable seating area. All very easy to take, and at reasonable prices too.

The Golden Rooster Deli has been a Kingston milestone since the early 1970's. It was owned and operated by the Larsen family and the quality of food, and the excellent service, was superior to most other restaurants/delis in Kingston. The Larsen's perfected the art of...More

One of our family's favourite spots downtown. Usually quite the line up for lunch, but once you figure out how to order properly (see other reviews) the wait is very short. We have eaten in with our small daughter (along with our jogging stroller) and...More
