We love coming to Brent's every time we have a craving for an excellent deli sandwich or the lovely matzo ball soup which is my all time favorite. I've never been disappointed with whatever I chose to order. Everything is delicious.

We love Brent's. When I went home (Detroit, MI) we compared Deli's there to Brent's and of course Brent's won out! The soup is wonderful, and you can even make a meal out of that. Love the corned beef and pastrami sandwiches, as well as the hamburgers and salads. If you go there you will not be disappointed!

If you love going to a Jewish deli this is the best place in town by far! I admit I love the meatloaf sandwich and get it almost overtime, but everything is is good too! Matzo Ball Soup, Corned beef, and Lox are all excellent. Plus they have this crazy giant chocolate cake that's fab and black and white cookies... More

Brent's is a traditional Jewish Deli. The quality of the food is first rate and the portions are large. Especially recommended is their pastrami. Good for families.
