We've always enjoyed the food. It can get busy at times, but that's what happens with good food! They always have delicious breads available to buy and take home with you. It's a good place for just dessert, as well.

Love everything here. Love the corn beef, fries, pickles, rye bread, Cole slaw and potato salad the best. Hamantashin are great to take to go - poppyseed must have - try them they are awesome.

My first time to order from here and it was just amazing. I had the Rachel and they know how to do a great sandwich. Highly recommend for deli sandwich food.

Cecil's is like a trip to the past as soon as you step into the door. They have a deli area as well as a sit-down restaurant section that looks as if it hasn't changed in 50 years. We ordered take out, and they have...More

The last remaining true Jewish deli in the Cities; nothing else is remotely close. Corned beef, pastrami and reuben are all to die for. Cecil's also offers a great deli and pastry counter, a small market, great people-watching, and a waiting line for tables that...More

My husband and I were in the cities for the day and had heard about Cecil's, we headed on over and were so happy we stopped. The sandwiches were delicious so was the Cole slaw. We got Knishes to go along with pastrami and corned...More
