This is by far the best Pastrami Sandwich I've ever had! The pastrami is tasty and high quality. Does not have all the fat you typically find in a sandwich like this. The staff is very friendly, and will give you a taste of things...More

Yes they do cater, and they do a fabulous job. Good food, and reasonably priced. Call them for details. I've been to several events that they catered over the years and have never been disappointed.
