I never miss a chance to go to Harold's when I am in Teterboro. I have only had the pastrami, but I get it every time. Best one i have tried. The service is never very good, but the food always is.

Outside of the Carnegie or Katz's and the $13 toll...this is your next best option for a wonderful pastrami sandwich. What a sandwich. Harold gives you all the rye bread you want at the salad bar so you can take his sandwich that serves 1-3 people and make 3 huge sandwiches. the waiter will give you aluminum foil and a... More

Love Harolds but just got turned away by a very nasty woman. Dining room closes at 9:30. We walked in at 9:14 and she said they were closed. My guess they closed as soon as Harold leaves. Very disappointing. This place used to be awesome.

Harold's is a New York style deli restaurant located in the Edison Hotel two blocks in front of the Sheraton Hotel on Raritan Center Parkway. We were taken to the restaurant, because we were told that it is a must sample for food. We stayed at the Sheraton Hotel and went to Harold's for lunch. We noticed that just about... More

This is some of the best deli I've had, and the portions are HUGE. It's very expensive, but you get a lot for your money, one slice of their cake can easily feed 4 people, and the same can be said for their sandwiches. The pickle/olive bar is a highlight and the soups are great.

I thought it was going to he better. Had tongue sandwich. Did not eat the bread. was still hungry. I had my own can of soda in car. Saw huge people eating there they ordered many sandwiches and sides. Thought it to be over priced. I like cold tongue it was heated I asked for lemon and ketchup.

Some of the best corn beef and pastrami you will ever have. Sandwiches are huge! Each one servers 2-3 people, and the deserts are just as big. Service is not overly friendly, but they were very busy at lunch time.

A business friend from CA asked if there was a classic NY deli in central NJ, making Harold's the obvious choice to get great classic deli food and give him an experience to remember. He had to stop laughing at the monster portions to start eating, but enjoyed the corned beef stacked 10 inches high. Dr.Brown's Cream soda and a... More

A not your ordinary deli/restaurant that serves huge portions of deli meat piled high on sliced bread. Check out the cakes upon entering, they look like they were injected with silicone! We ordered the corned beef/pastrami combo for 4-6 people, and it was plenty of food for three of us. We all got leftovers to take home. Food quality excellent,... More
