Decent N.Y. style Jewish deli does not disappoint. Has the usual corn beef, pastrami, matzoh bowl soup etc. Not gourmet but good comfort food.

We were staying at the Red Roof Inn nearby and they told us that we would get 10% for breakfast by showing our room key. I ordered a LOX which was a huge plate. Good service, nice food.

Great smoked fish, bagels, potato pancakes, salmon cakes, bialys and other deli favorites. You will feel like you are in Brooklyn.

Great place for any meal because of their homemade food at reasonable prices. From the home made onion rolls to dessert, you won't be disappointed. Stop by the bakery on your way out for a delicious treat to take home. Love the apricot and walnut rugelach!

Besides cooked chicken and delicious broth, there are Matzo Balls, Noodles, Kreplach, Potatoes, Rice and Kasha. This is real comfort food. There... More

Food excellent. Best salami omelette. Service is excellent and very customer focused. It's always crowded and the atmosphere is fun. We love frequenting the restaurant on the weekends abs sometimes during the week for dinner.

The Jewish style deli was a staple of many neighborhoods years ago. Where I grew up there was virtually one on every block and the authentic cuisine is like mother's milk. M and B does a great job of reinforcing those memories. Corned beef, sloppy overstuffed omelettes , matzoh ball and kreplach soup, lox and bagels, etc. The whole magillah.... More

My wife and I ate at Max and Benny's last night and as usual we had an excellent experience. I had the Turkey meal and the turkey was cut thick just like Thanksgiving. I don't like how some restaurants cut it thin. My wife had a half of a sandwich and cabbage soup which she enjoyed. As usual, our service... More
