A special place to go for remembering what delis used to be like. Over stuffed sandwiches, all the side dishes you would expect. Service tries very hard, but it seems like the deli counter and kitchen make service slow. The prices are high for the...More

We did take out. The light sandwich specials are a bargain. Soup, sandwich , pickles etc. and soda. Our Pastrami, Turkey and Corned Beef sandwiches were excellent.

Great food for both breakfast and rest of the day! Portions are large (I always take leftovers for lunch the next day after eating there).

I haven't had a bad meal here. Most people don't like it but, they have a great tongue sandwich. Ordered it lean and hot. It was delicious. They also have a large selection of sugar free deserts to take home.
