We stopped here for dinner on our way to Shabbat. The ruben was fantastic. The corned beef was piled high. Cabbage soup is a must! The bakery/deli had a great variety of delicious goodies for desert.

My wife and I had chicken with accompanying dinner stuff. The food was properly cooked, hot, and tasty. Service was good as well. The only drawback was that the prices were above average for this type of restaurant.

This deli is very popular, and rightfully so. The food, service, variety of choices, and prices are all great. The bakery has amazing sweets. And the restaurant sponsors Jewish Holidays, which can be very convenient.
