Lines are long, but this restaurant has there act together .They know how to handle crowds. The lines really moves. Have to find seating in a common area, but they food is almost as good as the old Second Avenue Deli in NYC. I had Pastrami my wife had the turkey, loved it.

One of the best Reuben Sandwiches I've ever had. The Pastrami is soooooo good. Look at the meats in awe, watch your sandwich get built, grilled, served very friendly despite the amount of people and then find a spot to devour this amazing food!

This deli is inside the Reading Terminal Market and is my go to place for lunch whenever I'm in City Center. Food lives up to its name and you can even get a real New York egg cream! They cook all their own food, including corned beef and brisket. Just the best!

Incredible value, for the most amazing sandwich, the best corn beef sandwich I’ve had including anything I’ve tried in the big apple, really tasty the grilled marble rye bread with cheese piled high with corn beef was just delicious - Also really appreciated the big portion, but not so enormous that it put you off - it was just right (if you’re hungry!)
