After trying a number of pastrami places in 3 boroughs, we decided that, aside from Ben's Best in Rego Park, this place has the best pastrami and food in general, but sadly no kreplach. But, yay, it means we can go on a regular basis without having to travel far. The pastrami is tender, the tongue is juicy, the cole... More

Whether you live in New York City, or only visit occasionally, a trip to Liebman's Kosher Deli in the Bronx is well worth your time. Though the spinach knishes and the stuffed cabbage are among the best deli food items I've EVER consumed, the menu is so diverse that there is something for everyone, including an amazing cucumber salad, and...

Liebman's Kosher Delicatessen & Restaurant going strong after 63 years of doing it great! Be it my Matzah ball soup or our over stuffed Pastrami, turkey or brisket sandwiches to potatoe knishes and latkes, always fresh, always delicious, always consistently great! Oh, and don't forget Dr. Brown's sodas and those addictive pickles and cole slaw! Plus the waiters are witty... More

Once again, when visiting Liebman's Deli I left happy and satisfied. The corn beef and pastrami sandwiches were excellent! The bread was just how I liked it and the meat was specific to your request; something many places won't do. There kosher hotdogs are a must! I always take home with me a quarter or two of matzo soup to... More

I got lucky and moved to a neighborhood which still has one of that dying breed--a Jewish delicatessen. And it's a great one. My friends from Brooklyn and upstate come all the way to the Bronx to eat here. Liebman's has all the usual that you go to a Jewish delicatessen for: hot pastrami, corned beef, brisket, knishes, roast turkey,... More

Great service and really good food.Took the whole family there-they were very accommodating and made us as comfortable as possible. We ordered a wide variety of items (flying forks) all was good.

Stopped in for dinner after seeing the reviews, and was not disappointed. First off, I enjoyed the authenticity of the staff. They are friendly, frank, and funny. The prices are slightly steep, but they give huge portions and the quality of food is great, so in the end, it's worth the cost. Also, they have a large menu with many... More

Liebman's on Riverdale Ave in the Bronx is a find. Great waiters who are friendly and knowledgeable. The food is great. Great deli. The hot corned beef and hot pastrami are my favorites. The knishes, matzoh ball soup, and my favorite is the kasha varnishkes with gravy. A great old time kosher deli! A little pricy, but very large portions.... More
