the BEST Pastrami

This is the ONLY place to order a real legit pastrami! It's delicious and it's hard to finish a whole one alone but it's possible. The fries come in a huge bag so a small could probably feed two people. I usually split one order of everything with my husband because it's so much food. It's a bit... read more

Stopped in for lunch and had the always delicious pastrami. Also ordered a small fries and large drink. Let me say, the pastrami and small fries were more than enough for my wife and I to share. We actually threw some fries away, we were stuffed! The three menu items ran us a total of $15, pricey, but when you... More

It was "OK" prices a little high food was fresh/good, service could have been better, it seemed to be understaffed for the amount of business, this resulting in slower service and over all up keep with the dinning area and tables
