Amazing Reuben (and I'm from Omaha!)

You feel like you have been dropped in your uncle's basement full of knick knacks and old posters of Elvis and Chuck Berry. Huge selection of beers and the food was amazing. Roughly 100 feet from my hotel too so I ate here 3 times in 2 days.

This was the place we always made a point to visit. The food was okay, its just changed a little over the years and we just weren't as thrilled as normal when we left. Its also gotten a bit expensive. Four sandwiches, a couple pops and no drinks was almost $50 with tip.

This is just a great small place to pop in for an excellent, simple sandwich. The pastrami is very tender and tasty, and the bread always fresh. Simple sides are offered, like a deli, with no deep fried options nor the associated smell. Two kinds of potato salad (American and German) make for a nice side option. Friendly bartenders and...

This was my favorite spot while I was in college and I love grabbing a sandwich at Rock-A-Belly when I'm back in Manhattan visiting or for game days! It is a small place with limited seating, but they've added a back patio which helps. They have great sandwiches and chips and a full-service bar. The nostalgic atmosphere is a lot... More

We stopped here for a quick lunch on a Wednesday afternoon. When we got there around noon, all of the inside tables were taken; however, there was room at back in the alley area....it was a beautiful spring day, and the heaters made it very comfortable. Our server was good, and very friendly. There looked to be a couple of... More

If you're in Manhattan, beat the crowds and get there early. Excellent sandwiches - sub style, warm, and delicious bread! Excellent atmosphere with unique decor. Whether you are seated at the bar or in a booth, this place will not disappoint! Great service and food! I will be returning!

A Saturday afternoon basketball game for KState made a fun atmosphere for lunch in Aggieville at Rock-A-Belly. It was crowded but service was good. Nice choice of sandwiches, but I enjoyed a spinach salad.
