Went here before a Devils game and the place was crowded, filled with Devil fans. Little expensive, but the food and service make up for it. Will def be heading here before Devils games in the future.

I love Hobby's sandwiches. I'm originally from Philadelphia but I've lived in Jersey the last 3 years. My husband who is from Newark knows all the go to places for all types of food. We don't eat at Hobby's often, but when we do we are never disappointed. The corned beef and pastrami on rye is delicious. Juicy and tender... More

Sandwiches are fresh, put together good very well and presentation is good, workers are pleasant. Those persons that attended the meeting really enjoyed the sandwiches and some inquired where did they come from.

Haven't been here for a while but it was very very good. So glad I stopped. Every time I eat here or take out the food is fresh piled high and tasty. You would be hard pressed NOT to like it yourself. Always look forward to eating here.

I was back east for a family function. Compliments of the Save The Deli page on Facebook I became aware of Hobby's. Although originally from Newark, I had never been to Hobby's was not even aware of it. Having a bit of available time and as the Deli's of my youth have closed, it seemed a good idea to give...

So the place is also a restaurant, not only a deli. Had the beef sausage and was happy to hear the soup of the day was goulash, which was one of the best soups I ever had. Really! Service was not the most efficient but super friendly and hospitable. Really a good place for lunch

I went there for breakfast twice on a short visit. Terrific, classic deli, with delicious breakfast options from sweet to savoury. Very friendly staff as well.

Great place to eat! Sandwiches have so much meat on it, they are hard to fit your mouth. We enjoyed the corn beef and pastrami, and the turkey club! Absolutely delicious. My husband and daughter love the pickles and we always have to take some to go. Staff is very friendly and make you feel right at home. You never... More
