We just moved here from south Florida and were looking for a good bagel place and I think we found it! The bagels were fresh and were the perfect size. The whipped chive cream cheese was delicious... we even bought some to take home! It's all kosher, so don't expect real bacon or ham in your omelet, but my husband... More

We were so excited to try this place after watching it on TV during our visit to Denver. Just as a note, we have been to several Jewish deli restaurants through the country including Katz in New York. After driving for half an hour, we arrived at 1:30pm midweek. The place looks pretty run down. As you enter, one side... More

We tried this restaurant because it was featured on the Food Network; we were not disappointed. My wife and I got a pastrami Ruben and a bowl of chicken soup with 2 matzo balls. These items are big enough where we split each, especially the sandwich. I don't know how one person could eat one of these by themselves.Everything we... More

This place is fast and efficient. You're not going to wait around to be served, or for a coffee refill. This place runs like a well oiled machine. Sometimes a line for a table, but it moves quickly. Portions are huge, bring your appetite.

Be prepared to wait for a table. The restaurant is small, a bit crowded and very busy. It has a national reputation because it was featured by Guy Fieri...and it's very good food. We went at lunch time. Parking was very difficult and we had to stand and wait for nearly 30 minutes. The wait was worth it. I had... More

We love everything we've ever tried here! I recommend splitting the classic Reubens with someone since it is MASSIVE (pictured) and then you can share the did sampler of knish, kishke, and matzo ball soup. Then top it off with apple cinnamon kenosh for dessert!

An argument between my friends and I is who has Denvers best Ruben. This place was my second best next to New York deli news down the street, but more of my friends picked this place. I think everyone should have this argument as it is a tasty argument to have

Live in Denver and was heading that direction so found it on TA and Yelp. I love this kids of place - simple, local and great food and service. Pastrami was amazing and on our way out as it was our first visit, one of the staff gave us some freebie deserts - will for sure be back!

The first time I went to Bagel Deli was in the 70s; you could see the bagels being made, I only went to get bagels. Now it has transformed itself into a perfect deli with a large restaurant and everything you would want or expect. The Reuben sandwiches are piled high with pastrami, or corned beef and took me right... More
