We had lunch here twice in a 9 day visit, it was that good. Service was good and welcomed our kids. Food was delicious and in good portion sized. Highly recommend.

My family has been coming to Benji's for several years. Every time we come the service is always fast, friendly, and efficient. On our last visit, I got a corned beef hash and cheddar omelette with rye toast. The corned beef hash was very flavorful, and had the perfect amount of corned beef, onion, green pepper, and potato. The omelette... More

OMG I am stuffed. 1/2 order of the super hoppel poppel and I'm about to pop. Great svc, endless coffee. Might have to come back for lunch in a few hours. Worth the drive in Milwaukee!

I hadn't been to Benj's in years but despite a change in ownership this deli on upper East Side is still great. You can get all the old favorites, i.e. pastrami, bagels and locks and the famous Hoppel Poppel, everyone's favorite. Service is fast & friendly & if prices slightly more than in the old days, the food is worth... More

We never dine in here, as the place is kind of dirty and really, really needs updating. However, their corned beef is great, and whenever someone in the family gets a cold, we rush to Benji's for their matzo ball soup. It's our comfort food.

My husband and I were looking for a place to get a good breakfast but also had been talking about trying to find a good delicatessen like one we ate at in NYC a few years back. We found both in Benji's. I had the breakfast and my husband ordered a roast beef sandwich. The meat was piled HIGH. Our... More

It has been here for years and that is because it is consistent and a good price! Is at the end of a short strip mall (2 other stores) and parking can be annoying. Is good basic deli food. Love the matzo ball soup and the corn beef sandwiches and blintzes. Keep coming back as it is always good/quick/affordable/comfortable. The... More

This place is well known and loved by locals, many people being served were called by name. As a stranger in this environment , I still felt welcomed. They had daily soup specials and a menu staple of beet borscht , a wide selection of sandwiches and are well known for their corned beef. I enjoyed the tree-hugger sandwich with... More
