Great food & service. I had the New York Pastrami, he had the Chuck special. Both serviced hot on grilled bread, ample meat, great taste. Broccoli salad and chips to top it off. Oh almost forgot the Cajun clam chowder...WOW, thick, rich just excellent! Don't pass by this Diamond.

Have wanted to go to this deli for years to see what all the raving was about and finally made it! My husband & I both had the rueben and I will tell you it's the best around! They pile on the meat very heavy, so much that I could only eat 1/2 of the sandwich. It's not just quantity... More

Went for an early supper. Why haven't I been here before? The sandwich I had was a simple delight. Corned beef, pastrami, Swiss cheese, hot mustard & rye bread. $7.50 and worth every penny. My wife enjoyed a chicken salad and a cup of potato salad. She said that it was the best she'd ever had. I decided to try... More

Been to NYC, been to Chicago. Diamond Deli has the best sandwiches of all. I've had most of the sandwiches on the menu and haven't found one yet that hasn't been fantastic. And so many choices! In my opinion - you can't go wrong. And you get sooo much sandwich for the money. Most people have a hard time finishing... More

An authentic "New York" style Deli in downtown Akron. Fantastic sandwiches and soup! Prices are reasonable as well.

Eat in or take out either way great. This is a real deli. The sandwiches are huge and delicious. Menu changes daily but the staples remain. You can't go wrong. Parking is on street but not a problem. Staff is the best.
