Always crowded; tasty deli food; NYC atmosphere

For a little taste of NYC deli atmosphere, brush into the Star Deli. Order something quick before somebody pushes you outta the way!

Star still has the best Corned beef, They used to be better. Look for a Deli that cooks there own & uses "Vienna Beef products"...! Only a few left in the "D" area. Anyone who mans the slicer should no what there doing. Not many of them left...Some/Most had either worked with, for or had been trained by my Father,... More

I was delighted to find Star Delicatessen. This is still a real deli! I had a wonderful sandwich of rye bread, cole slaw, russian dressing, swiss cheese, lettuce, pepper, and tomato. (If I could have another it would have onion instead to the tomato.) With this "sandwich" I had a slice of old pickle. Bought new and old pickles for... More

This is the best corned beef sandwich you'll get! Homemade Jewish rye, fresh cole slaw, cheese....yum! You can have your sandwich made to order or buy your meats and cheeses to take home. They also have sides for purchase like any deli, salad and such. They also have Hallava, cold drinks, a variety if Chios and such. Again, just a... More

We were heading out to the lake for a sail and decided to try this little hole in the wall for some take out sandwiches. The corn beef and pastrami were delicious. Loved the onion rolls. Counter service was fast and efficient. Food was great. Definitely recommend.

I'm originally from the area and grew up on deli food. I now live in Chicago and have done so for the past 20+ years and in all that time have never found a deli to match those in Michigan. I don't know if it's the water but you cannot compare the corned beef in Michigan to what I get... More

Smoked Turkey, Corned Beef, Pickled Tomatoes, Rye Bread! Coleslaw and Potato Salads were FANTASTIC! We liked the Corned Beef the best. The salami was a hit with the kids. The Russian Dressing reminded me of my Grandmother's from the Lower East side of New York CIty when I was a little girl.

I was in town for work and a coworker suggested I try this place. He raved about the pastrami and corned beef. I had the tuna one day and the pastrami the other day, I prefer the Tuna. The pastrami was good, but the Tuna was GREAT. I also tried the banana pudding and german chocolate cake, they were alright... More

Nice to see that there is still a deli where the owner works side by side with his staff behind the counter filling carryout orders. As they say, the great ones make it look easy: great tasting corned beef (sliced thin), thick cuts of rye bread with a crunchy crust, homemade Russian dressing and your choice of either an “old”...
