Was hoping to have a meal delivered to someone for his birthday today, he is living and working nearby the deli and family and friends are in Maine. They said minimum for delivery was $40 and we agreed to make order over $40. After taking the order and information was told they would not deliver because it was just a... More

We had the Reuben and it was soooooo good! The pickles were amazing also! The coke slaw with vinegar was great too! This restaurant was recommended by a customer of mine who has lived here all his life. It was really good! Definitely be back!

I heard about this place from a coworker. I ordered a Ruben and it was outstanding! The potato salad was good, but not great. The service was excellent, even though the place was very busy. I cannot wait to go back and order the roast beef sandwich, which I heard was the best around.

We were craving a good deli sandwich during our visit to Schenectady, and I remembered Gershon's Deli on upper Union Street. I'm happy we went there! We had the Reuben sandwich, which was nothing short of perfect. Lean corned beef, tasty kraut, gooey cheese and wonderful Russian dressing. All married with perfectly grilled rye bread. One sandwich was enough to... More

Gershon's has been there seemingly forever. It continues to put out great food in general and deli sandwiches in particular, especially my personal favorite, the Rubin. I will usually get a Rubin when I eat in a deli, so I've had a fair number. Gershon's is definitely the best. The meat is lean and juicy and there's not so much... More

Terrific deli sandwiches and amazing side dishes. Don't forget to get some potato salad and Coles slaw because the recipes are like none I've ever had. Be prepared to wait at lunch time but it will be worth it!

We have eaten there on several occasions. The staff could be friendlier, but it's a deli. The food is no less than AWESOME, but their prices are high, but they should be for food that good. I got a reuben there last time and was better than average.

Great sandwiches, chewy bagels and crusty breads, The almond crescents are to die for. The owner has changed more than once over the last 50 years, but the food stays great.

Gershon's is a traditional Jewish deli. The counters are filled with scrumptious looking food! Our Roast beef sandwiches came exactly as ordered and tasted delicious. The roast beef was cut on the thicker side and was rare...love their Russian dressing, too. The only down side was our server. She barely served us, I had to get us napkins as she... More

Driving from Montreal to Philadelphia we had to detour to get to Gershon's but a friend said this restaurant had some of the best Corned Beef she ever had every eaten so I had to try it. I am so glad we took took the time. The restaurant is classic kosher style deli decor. The tables are close together. The... More
