A taste of Brooklyn?

If you have a craving for some down-home like, Brooklyn deli food, this is as close as it gets out here in the Illinois boonies.

The food was terrible and expensive! Corned beef tasted like lunch meat from a grocery store not freshly made, They don't know how to make liver pate', it was bland and pasty. The potato pancakes were nothing more than fried mashed potatoes. You make latkes' by grating fresh potatoes and onion, no short cuts! I make liver pate' which is... More

This was actually a second choice for breakfast when we bumped into a waiting line elsewhere. A bit of a throwback theme with old multicolored linoleum tiles on the floor, posters, maybe 200 photos on yellow and red walls and great sixties music (maybe some early seventies thrown in). The food is fantastic and the staff has the greatest attitude... More

Found this gem of a sandwich spot on return trip from Indiana. Excellent pastrami, corned beef and other very tasty sandwiches. The meat is piled high with all the extras. Many ethnic choices in the food case. Clean, pleasant atmosphere but mostly just great food.

Who knew there was a national brisket day! I had an overstuffed brisket sandwich - the bread, the brisket and the sauce was wonderful. And the pickle was crisp - and huge. The bagel chips (bagel sized) were delicious. I loved the energy at the order counter and down the line. The next time I go back to Naperville this... More

Try the Brooklyn Beef Brisket with the horseradish sauce, you will not be disappointed! Their desserts are pretty good as well!

Very good sandwiches. The corned beef is excellent. Service is fast and good. A little on the pricey side but well worth it.
