Upson reading reviews of this place, I almost didn't go in. Reviews seemed to be mixed. I ordered the Pastrami sandwich and a drink and cost about $24 - which is of course on the higher end. The sandwich was good, but I don't believe it was worth the money I spent. Once the server brings the food out, they... More

It specializes in pastrami and the pastrami is very good. The sandwiches are LOADED with meat. I had half a hot pastrami on rye (you can switch the breads around) and it had as much pastrami as a sandwich and a half in some other places. Free parking in back.

Dined alone at the counter. Large pastrami and a coke. The server suggested another coke for the road as I was paying. $30 with tip! Very delicious but not enough for a repeat visit.

I always get the fish and chips but with the onion rings instead of fries. The fries are pretty bad. But, my son gets the pastrami sandwich and loves it! The beer selection is crap but the food is reasonably priced and worth the wait. Just don't ask for a milk shake!!

Cash Only. Great small place for a good hot pastrami sandwich. Love the atmosphere. Small Diner tables w/ jukebox, Individual Coin Operated selection at each of the tables inside. Great late night spot. Been coming here for years.

nice place for a good Pastrami and beer, love the outdoor setting, you see a lot of regulars there so it tells you just how good the food is.
