Traditional Jewish deli...that has been in business for over 50 years. Expect a line to be seated (no matter when you go)...but it's well worth wait. I recommend corned beef on rye and a chocolate phosphate - although I really don't think you can go wrong with anything you order here. And don't... read more

Was back in town last week for the first in years and decided to go to Corky's. Had not eaten their in years, but needed a good corned beef sandwich. Still the best! Lean and tasty! Service was good and the pickles were fresh. Will be back the next time we are back home. Thanks!

I'm a guy in my mid 60s, and Corky & Lennys has been around for years. Decades. I think I had my first serving of bagels and lox there in the late 70s/early 80s. I didn't know what LOX were, but come to find out it was salmon. Okay, now we're talking 2015. My wife doesn't like this place but... More

Having grown up eating at The Stage and Carnegie Diners in the Big Apple, I know a thing or two about diners and pastrami. Corky & Lenny's serves up rye bread, corned beef, pickles, blintzes etc that would make anyone giddy. Baked goods are decent too. Service can be a little NY-style too (brisk & terse).

Most people in the Cleveland area know how great Corky and Lenny's is, great sandwiches, fast and friendly service, fair prices....What some may not know is that they have Gluten free bread. Theirs was the first Ruben sandwich I had had in about 5 yrs. The menu offers have several gluten free choices. The lox and cream cheese are also... More

There was nothing wrong with the breakfast we had. It just wasn't outstanding. If you are in the area, it is a good choice. Would I drive across town to eat there, no I would not. Everything was executed the way it should be done and server saw to our needs.

I discovered Corky and Lenny's 15 years ago and became an immediate fan. Great variety and fantastic sandwiches on the East side. A must-do restaurant in Cleveland / Akron.

My wife and I were broke down in the area for seven nights and this restaurant was recommended by the staff at the Super 8 where we stayed. The food was excellent and more than one person could eat. Overstuffed did mean overstuffed, price was high for sandwiches but well worth it. I would recommend to anyone in area.

After 10 years of going to Cleveland I have visited C&L many times. This time was no different, service kinda slow place was packed and the food was fantastic. A must do if you've never been and a must go back if you have. Also when you go do yourself a favor and get some Ruggala on the way out... More

I have been here many, many times over the years. Always packed, and has everything. A great, classic Cleveland deli. Worth a visit, but be prepared to wait in line.
