If you have a hankering for real old fashioned kosher--not "kosher style"--deli, head directly to Ben's. While there are more dietetic options, why go here for that! Stick with the piled-high sandwiches, especially the pastrami and corned beef. Soups are just like "bubbie" (grandma) made. Service is efficient, if not elegant! This is old-fashioned, classic New York deli, dill pickles... More

This Ben's is not nearly as good as the one in Greenvale. Turkey burger here - not nearly as good as the one on Greenvale. Service was good but not nearly as warm and welcoming as Greenvale - a whole other experience. And.....the bathroom floors.....wildly slippery and dangerous! Gotta fix those floors!

Has fallen lower. Used to be a go to pastrami and corned beef place, latkes, chicken soup, cole slaw. Now it is a bit cartoonish, and the quality of those deli meats no longer competes with the likes of Katz's, sadly. Still the waiters are likeable, cole, slaw, pickles, rye, and fountain drinks are up to par. And forget about... More

Food is always pretty good. Chechen soup is like dishwater though. Sandwiches always good. Still pricey

Visiting for a family wedding from Upstate NY, it was wonderful to get a chance to eat at a real kosher deli. The matzoh ball soup and salami/pastrami sandwiches were delicious and the service for lunch was very attentive.

A definite place to check out when on Long Island. I am somewhat of a pastrami snob and I can tell you Ben's sandwich is as good as any I have had. The Matzo Ball soup was also outstanding. Ben's Kosher is making Long Island Jewish food great again.

The restaurant offers good service and a good menu to choose from. I took a star away as I think the menu needs updating. The rewards program does work as you can build points very quickly. The discounts appear at the swipe of your restaurant card. The soup and 1/2 sandwich is a terrific value as the 1/2 sandwich is... More

Went for soup and sandwich. Very disappointed with dry pre=sliced pastrami with no flavor. Carle Place venue was always top notch. Don't know what's going on here.
