NEVER going back.

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... read 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

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 was one within... 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!

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
