Corned Beef Heaven in a Surprising Location

Hands down one of the best corned beef sandwiches in the US. I was a little unsure the first time I pulled up to Slyman's. The building doesn't exactly scream awesomeness. But, trust me when I tell you that you will not be disappointed.

What would Cleveland be without Slyman's? Everytime we are in the area we stop and bring home these huge corned beef sandwiches. One is enough to feed two. There is just no stopping how high they can build a sandwich. And they are simply good. Always consistent. Always busy but servers are fast.

There is no reason to go anywhere else for corn beef in Cleveland. The best hands down. The turkey Ruben is to die for let me tell you.

There is a reason - rain or shine, 90 or 20 below - this place has a line out the door at lunchtime: The Smurf. Don't ask me why, but that's what Freddie -- king of the slicer, owner and man behind the counter calls the Corned Beef with Swiss on rye. This is a colossal creation: more freshly sliced... More

Great sandwiches. You'll never be low on meat. Any and all sandwiches cannot be beat. You'll wait in long lines. You'll be barked at to give your order quickly. The food is not cheap but sandwiches are massive. The place is grungy with minimal seating and service is just so so. But you cannot go wrong with a deli sandwich... More

I've been having corned beef sandwiches here since the 70's. There is no better sandwich in the US. The potato salad is also to die for.

slyman's is family run and you can taste the love! Breakfast or lunch you will never go wrong. Known for their corned beef, I am partial to the tuna melt, it is their fathers recipe and it is amazing!

One of the, if not THEE best place for CORNED BEEF. Slyman's use to be my main stop for lunch - business, family, friends - you can't beat them. Unbelievable service and atmosphere. If you love corned beef (and other deli style food) you've GOT to make it to Slyman's no matter where else you've been. I don't go that... More
