Stopped by after movie with wife and granddaughter. I ordered a Reuben mini-bagel. Meat very fatty, almost inedible plus too high priced as were the other meals. This will be our only visit. High hopes but Disappointed.

Love this place. Brought us back to the east coast where this food was a staple for us. Jackie R was very pleasant, attentive, and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this place for a trip back to NYC without the 5 hour plane ride.

We've visited here several times and they never fail to meet expectations. Sandwiches are traditional NYC mile high with house made pastrami, corned beef and brisket. Compares well to Katz's or Carnegie Deli in NYC. Friendly servers and the front pastry case is so tempting....More
