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!

Stopped by for lunch. Chicken soup was generous size serving and tasty. French fries arrived late and were soggy but with a real potato flavor. The menu is big, so be prepared to look it over thoroughly. Atmosphere is just a big and somewhat loud cafeteria. Good for a casual snack.

Great place.....huge sandwiches. Best pastrami on rye sandwich I have ever had. The meat melted in your mouth, lean no fat. Great service, a must to go if your in the area for lunch.

Stopped in here around 8:30 PM for takeout as we were staying at a nearby hotel. Place was still pretty crowded but that didn't prove any issue other than finding parking in the busy shopping center where they're located. Food was ready when I got there, and still piping hot when I got it back to the hotel. Potato soup... More

Ben's used to be THE place to go for Deli on the Island. What happened? I had the "Lean" brisket. It was chock full of fat, and very tough to eat. What a severe disappointment.

Ben's really do make good pastrami, brisket, cole slaw and homemade pickles without heading to Manhattan for your satisfaction. The seating is comfortable with plenty of parking outside(it's a typical long island shopping plaza outside). I always come here for my sandwich fix of tasty meats. My wife likes there corned beef and tongue sandwiches too! We always treat our... More
