I just had the most delicious knish of my life. I tried two kinds - the spinach and potato (which was good) and the pastrami/corned beef, which was to die for. Literally, with every bite I said, "Oh my God." This was my first time...More

The best corned beef in the Midwest. The nova is beyond compare. A great family run business a real throwback to what a great deli is all about.

In cities around the USA, people (Jewish and not) ask “why isn’t there a good Jewish deli in this city?” A great corned beef sandwich is elusive. A lot of corned beef tastes like ham. Some is thicker and warm and tastes like the kind...More

I love this Jewish Deli! One of the best in St louis. I could not ask for a better food. I love the Matzo ball soup and the service was impeccable.

A family owned Deli, with great corn beef and pastrami. It is still 1960 @ Protzel's, and that adds to the charm. The owner and his sisters run the place.
