Best Corned Beef!

The colossal sized corned beef sandwiches are great. They're so big that I order extra bred for another sandwich. The long lines should not scare you away because they moved pretty fast. Just believe that you'll get a hot, fresh and delicious sandwich. Many options to choose from (corned beef... read more

Of course it is packed on St. Patrick's day. One year I stood in line for over an hour, just to get in the door! But, oh, was it worth it. The bread is really fresh and the corned beef is well marbled with the fat which doesn't make it fatty, just juicy. Take out is a staple but eating... More

Amazing, excellent and massive corned beef sandwich on rye. Be careful with the horse radish because it is the real deal. The corned beef is not too dry nor wet nor greasy as other versions can be. Busy during peak times. Simple sit down or counter service. Coke in a can. It is in an unassuming red brick building in... More

The restaurant is not fancy. It's located in an older section of town. There are not many inside seats and the seats are close together. A corned beef sandwich costs about $14.99. The sodas are in cans (no fountain drinks). There seemed to be a constant line of customers for takeout at lunch time. I ordered a corned beef sandwich... More

The locals line up out the door for their sandwiches. We were told to be there hy 11am and that was no joke. We sat at the lunch... More

The Corn Beef sandwich was amazing and huge! They also have fries with gravy. I would highly recommend this restaurant. We where lucky and got there early. By the time the full rush of lunch was on, the line was out the door,no kidding. They have sandwich making down to a science and they moved customers through quickly. If you... More

Their Corned Beef Sandwich is the cure. Wow! Wow! Wow! After the first half of the big sandwich I was full but tasted so good I had to finish it up, even if it meant death, I swear. This sandwich is not for the health conscious but you'll forget about health if you tried it.

I just moved to Cleveland and this place was highly recommended. Wow. Huge! I had the corned Beef melt, and it was maybe 6 inches thick?!!! I couldn't put it in my mouth, but I had fun trying! Served with horseradish or thousand island.... I was in heaven. $15 minimum for one sandwich, so be prepared to pay up. It... More
