I ADORE this place! It's my NYC go-to restaurant.

I have been to Ben's in Manhattan several times and always have to go back more than once because they have more than one thing I MUST have when I go to NYC (Stuffed Cabbage and Corned Beef & Pastrami Sandwiches). Imagine how happy I was when working in Carle Place, NY (on Long Island) and there... read more

My wife and I are Italian, but growing up in New York, kosher "deli" food has always been one of our favorite (occasional) treats. Anything from grilled Hebrew National hot dogs with great deli mustard and sauerkraut -- to hot corned beef or pastrami on rye -- how could anyone resist this classic cuisine. Sadly, the greats are all pretty... More

The pickles and coleslaw to start are good. Had a great sandwich too. But for $17 you'd think they could throw in some French Fries. A $17 sandwich, really? It was ok.

First the pickles and coleslaw are delicious and come with every meal. I always have warm tongue on rye bread, always lean and never a disappointment. My friend had pastrami and she said at this Ben's the pastrami is always lean and cooked just right. The menu has a good variety. If you aren't happy with an item, no problem,... More

After eating here several times, dad and I decided we were in the mood for a hot pastrami sandwich so we went to Bens. We had the absolute worst experience to the point that we will never go back. We were there around 2:30 and the place was practically empty. We were seated in the far back corner at a... More

Ate at Bens on Tues. for lunch, my husband ordered Goulash which came with pea soup. He liked the soup and the fact that it was served in a very large bowl. The Goulash was dry and did not have much taste. I ordered a hot pastrami sandwich that was almost cold and really had no taste. My tea was... More

We enjoyed corned beef and pastrami sandwiches. Overstuffed and yummy. Sides of pickles and cole slaw on the table. There are fewer and fewer places in this country where you can still get Jewish "soul" food. Delightful lunch.

If you're in the mood, this is a great choice for deli and more. The sandwiches are enormous and the cole slaw is delicious. The meat on the sandwiches was lean and sliced thin. The waitstaff was attentive and friendly. Great dinner with the family!
