The Best in Jewish Deli!!

I forget how long Gershon's Deli has been in business but it is still the best deli anywhere! We recently relocated to Rock Hill, South Carolina and we have yet to find anything that comes close! Their pastrami, corned beef and roast beef are all made in house and their rice pudding is delicious... read more

I forget how long Gershon's Deli has been in business but it is still the best deli anywhere! We recently relocated to Rock Hill, South Carolina and we have yet to find anything that comes close! Their pastrami, corned beef and roast beef are all made in house and their rice pudding is delicious, IF you have room for dessert!

Not the cheapest but definitely one of the best deli sandwiches in the county! Everyone I know that eaten their food has had nothing bad to say.

Gershon's always has the best meats and salads for lunch. We have ordered for the office and never been disappointed. Stopping in for lunch on the weekends is always a nice treat. Place is busy during normal lunch time so plan and early or late lunch and you will have no wait. Tony is always ready to help with any... More

You can pick your bread, pick whatever you want on it, and feast to your heart's content at Gershon's Deli. From time to time you'll run into a grumpy employee and have some rough service, but overall it's always great and the food is always delicious. Also, grab a potato pancake over there and have them heat it up. At... More

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
