Some of the best deli around. Everything is excellent. The only sad note is that you can't eat there. They put together awesome trays.

Family owned and run...no one has better sandwiches than Star. There trays are the best kosher style bar none. They will not tell you the secret of dressing that is used in their tuna salad, you've got to try it. Star is carry out only.

Great sandwiches, especially the corned beef. Carryout only. Don't expect friendly service. Parking lot is horrible. I am told that the desserts are excellent, but I never have room after the sandwiches.

I love the food at Star Deli. In fact i often go out of my way to stop in there. In fact, today I drove past 2 perfectly good deli's to get to Star. I've been a regular customer for over 30 years. Today was my last visit. Why? I'm OK with the guys behind the counter being sort of... More

The staff is very friendly, the owner is a great people person! You can call ahead and pick up your sandwich(es) if you're in a hurry. Get New York atmosphere, there are only 2 tables... More

We are fortunate to have some great New York style Jewish delicatessens in our area, and the Star is one of them. If you are on the go and don't need table service, the Star has corned beef sandwiches as good as anywhere. Including New York city. OK, I admit, I have been coming here now and then for decades,...

I've eaten corned beef all my life. I ate a corned beef sandwich on rye with cole slaw and thousand island dressing from the Star Deli last week. It was wonderful! I asked for their most popular sandwich and I thoroughly enjoyed it! The corned beef was very tasty, thin cut, not fatty and piled high. The rye was also... More

For a little taste of NYC deli atmosphere, brush into the Star Deli. Order something quick before somebody pushes you outta the way! And don't think you can sit down; what kinda place do you think this is? I recommend the right sandwich here, when you are in the right frame of mind. Otherwise, well, stop blocking the door!
