Oy, fedrei mein kopf and get me a Knish

The pastrami is REALLY good, the corned beef is REALLY good, the bread and bagels are wonderful, and they sell Junior's Cheese Cake (from Brooklyn, even). The only thing missing is the egg cream, but in a pinch, the cream soda will do. So try the pastrami on rye with a glass tea, you'll enjoy... read more

Great authentic deli with amazing corned beef, matza ball soup, and bagels to mention a few. Worth the drive. Try the double stuffed sandwich 1/2 lb. meat (definitely worth at least 2 meals).

Had lunch here with a friend. The half stuffed sandwiches are plenty big. Quick assembly line production of a large menu of items. A notch above the sub places in quality and price.

I've seen many a Jewish Deli - from New York, to New Jersey, to Kravitz in Youngstown. This place is decent and has the basics executed well. My wife loves their chicken noodle soup and turkey sandwich. I'm a sucker for their pastrami and reubens. Atmosphere is hopping and the staff has fun with you.

I literally stumbled upon Schmaltz's while stopping at another nearby store. Boy, am I glad I found it! From the minute you walk in (where you're loudly greeted by one of the friendly people behind the counter) you're transported to a time and feeling of being somewhere else. The decor and ambiance are very reminiscent of a New York Deli.... More

Nestled in a shopping center. Selections from matzah ball soup to your traditional pastrami sandwiches. Good size sandwiches and selections.
