I was looking for a quick breakfast while staying at nearby hotel and saw sign for Empire State Deli. The native New Yawker in me thought it was worth a look and was glad to see the owner Paul was legit being from a Queens and Long Island. After some fun banter I got to enjoy a tasty egg, pepper and onion sandwich. Very good--went back a few more times during my stay and wasn't disappointed. It's a solid deli if you're looking for a breakfast --guessing lunch wouldn't disappoint.

It'll do in a pinch. The menu isn't very broad, the quality and portions are nothing that make this establishment stick out.

Has great breakfast and lunch sandwiches. Reminded me of my NY roots. Spoke with the owner about the history. Bacon Egg and Cheese sandwiches were delicious.

Very reasonable prices. Decent food. Not what I am used to but still decent.
Sometimes they get the order correct and sometimes they just don't listen.
I have to make sure to tell the waitress I don't want onions but still get them at times. Not sure if it is the cook or waitress.
Clean place, plenty of seating
