“Great pastrami”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2013

Omg they pack this sandwich with so much pastrami it looks like a heart attack waiting to happen. The place was great but the service was slow and the onion rings tasted like rings of batter. Pretty disappointed since I love onion rings but they give you a massive amount of it.

“Best pastrami in area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2013

Hands down the best pastrami sandwich in area. If I want to really indulge the chili fries are to die for. Plan on taking a two hour walk afterwards to burn the calories tho.

Wow! One thing I know for sure- the pastrami fries are the BEST! That's the reason why I started to like pastrami. They're so bomb!

“GREAT NICHE PLACE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2013

This is a great place to go for perfect nostalgia food...superb! The menu is "OK", but the food is all you expect...the psatrami is greasy good, etc. This is NOT a fine, nor special restaurant, but a popular, fun, tasty expectation. I do not go there, unless, honestly, I want greasy good food. THEY HAVE IT, THOUGH!

“Best Pastrami”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2012

Great food and the service is pretty quick, based on it always being busy. My only thing is the dine in tables. There are not enough of them at times, so if you want to try this place out during lunch/dinner, be ready to jump on a table as soon as you see someone getting up.
