Corned beef and pastrami aren't the only reason to visit, but they are terrific. Potato pancakes also top my list, but don't forget the pickles and coleslaw. And please try the health salad so tasty I can never remember that's their name for it.

I used to go to Ben's Best regularly when I worked across the street in the late 1990's. They were my go-to local kosher meat place when I got tired of pizza (from Avelino's) and vegetarian Chinese from the local take out. I went for...More

This feels like the same experience from my youth. Service is great - good people. Food is really well prepared and serving sizes are ample (read: huge). Had been a few years since my last trip there and always love it - prices have moved...More
