Love their subs

One of our favorite deli's in this town. We moved away but are here to visit family and friends. We like the "Submarine" which is very large and can easily feed two people, but when my husband wants a whole "submarine", I order the "torpedo" for myself. Torpedo is a smaller version of the... read more

We moved from Roanoke VA several years ago and the New Yorker Deli is one of the things I miss the most. Tonight, while visiting in Roanoke, I enjoyed my favorite sandwich--a Kosher Klub--salami, pastrami, corned beef, Switzer cheese, peppers, & Russian dressing with a side of delicious slaw for $4.95. A favorite is the Submarine for $5.95. Their famous... More

BRING CASH! no credit cards or checks accepted - we did not realize that and it took lots of pockets to pay the bill for six of us. Great HUGE sandwiches. The traditional sub and the Roast Beef were amazing. The Reuben got an A+ as did the Club. Skip the tuna salad.

As a kid in elementary school I remember my dad taking trips to Roanoke to visit people in the hospital. Every trip he would return home with a box full of sandwiches from this little jewel. Over twenty years later it's still a must stop for any trip to Roanoke I make. The submarine is my favorite but the vagabond... More

As always a locally owned gem in the city. The food is always fresh and delicious. This is one place I look forward to visiting while in the Roanoke area.

I had the Italian sub which was just awesome. It's been a long time since I've been to Philly so I've missed the hoagies but their subs made up for it. Quality mean and plenty of it. Very awesome and yes, I will most definitely be returning. the sooner the better.

I have been eating the "Submarine" sandwich at this restaurant for fifty two years and still say it is the best deli sandwich I have ever had. My Dad and I drove to Roanoke (fifty miles away) many times specifically to have this sandwich, and I always make sure I schedule any business in Roanoke on any day but Monday,... More

What can I say. The New Yorker is a Roanoke Classic. The sandwiches are simply outstanding.My favorite is the Submarine with Slaw. It is huge so if you order it you had better bring your appetite. Lunch time is always busy but if they turn table pretty quick so any wait time is short. Service is usually adequate but can... More

Maybe it is not a fare comparison. But a restaurant called New Yorker Deli begs to be compared with real delicatessens in New York. The comparison does not go very far beyond the name. Having said that, I can't think of a better place in Roanoke to get an average tasting pastrami sandwich.

Usually enjoy a sandwich here. Not today. Ordered a "Sailor Sandwich." No knockwurst and sandwich served barely warm. If this is the new norm, then we would be back.
