Best Corned Beef in Cleveland

A very small, noisy restaurant with outstanding, very lean corned beef. Don’t be distraught if there is a line around the block…it is probably for takeout and not seating. But even if it is for the restaurant, it is worth the wait. It is a bit pricy for a sandwich but the sandwiches are HUGE. I... read more

The corned beef sandwiches at Slyman's Deli are to die for. It is a good thing that they close during daylight hours however as i did not feel at all comfortable with the neighborhood they are located in.

My husband stopped for lunch on a recent Saturday. The sandwiches are massive and delicious. You pay about $12 for a sandwich and a pickle, so it is not cheap, but the service and food were both excellent. It is not in an easy to get to neighborhood and it is very busy during the week, so maybe a trip... More

Great corned beef sandwiches. Soooo good!!! A little pricey, but worth it (I suppose). More than you would pay on average. Pretty big sandwiches. I went one day on my 12:00pm lunch break. We had to wait a while because they were sooooo crowded during that time. I would advise going during the low peak hours to avoid the long... More

The sandwiches here are enormous. But they're good, stuffed high with meat (and cheese). This is a workingman's place for lunch. Get here early. And check the website for their days and hours of operation.

Out of the way deli. Small place with huge sandwiches. First stop in a two day trip to Cleveland. We were seated fast and we ordered the corned beef sandwich and my wife ordered the pastrami. Had it at our table in 5 minutes and they were HUGE. We probably could have shared one but it was worth having the... More

The reviews I read more than lived up to expectations. The corned beef melt and roast beef sandwich were wonderful. The were so big you could share. No need for side items.

We couldn't wait for our plane to land at Akron/Canton airport, get our rental car and head to our first stop and most favorite and amazing deli....Slyman's. I felt like we were "druggies" going to get our fix of thinly sliced corned beef piled a mile high on amazing rye bread with a side of the best potato salad in... More

Slyman's Deli has always had the best corned beef sandwiches around? The sandwiches are huge and thick and at a reasonable price, great for lunch!

Slyman's makes an amazing corned beef sandwich...Huge portions...delicious. I had the Reuben and it was the best one I've ever had. Honestly though, when I go back it will be for the potato salad! I haven't had potato salad that good since my mother in law used to make it...from her German grandmother's recipe. I can't make it like she... More
