The menu was extensive, the food was well made and fresh and the service was super friendly and nice. Maybe it is better to go when it is not crowded like when we were there. Even the owner Mark was chatting with us. It was a great Jewish deli that is hard to find. No gimmicks, just a great place... More

Stumbled across this place for lunch. Loved the homemade pickles on the table. Portions and quality of food were exceptional. Waitress even "busted" me for ordering a diet coke with the steak and cheese :) Food was lightening fast out of the kitchen and I can't say enough about the size of the portions - my sub was massive and...

A bit difficult to find and park, but the food and experience was great. We had turkey sandwiches and asked the waitress to put anything on the sandwich that would taste good. It came with cole slaw and Russian dressing, and it was awesome! I also had a French Vanilla cupcake for dessert and it was delicious, but small.

We go here for lunch regularly! The food is consistently very good. The burgers are exceptional and are wY way better than the trendy burger spots. The also have a Mediterranean chicken platter that comes with hummus, pita, and Israeli salad. This is probably my favorite dish. The matzoh ball and all the chicken soups are very good as well....

one would not expect to find a deli of this nature in downtown newark. the food was very good, simple, reminiscent of lower east side delis that i remember from 30 years ago in NYC. the only complaint was a bit pricey considering location and atmosphere. portions are as expected - big!

When you go to Hobby's Deli, you do so for a delicious meal and, maybe, to conduct some business. The neighborhood is not very pleasing to the eye, neither is the building itself however, on any given day there are a number of judges, attorneys, the U.S. Attorney, alongside office workers, messengers and people from different profession, all enjoying a...

My family and I got there 1/2 hour before the place was officially open on Saturday morning, but the owner let us in anyway. "If you don't mind us setting up around you, we can get you breakfast." That was the start of impressive customer service - it was all great! I wish we could go back to experience the... More

I have been trying to get to this deli for over 10 years. The hours of business just don't work for people who don't work downtown. So I was glad that I was finally going on Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014. It was no problem that the surrounding area is old and shabby but then when you come up to the... More
