We have been going to Rochester's Deli for years now. Several years ago we moved about 70 miles away from Waukesha, but still drive back about once a month, not just for the corned beef, but for all of their products. The last time we were there they weren' t open yet. They opened their doors early for us!

My favorite place in Waukesha for a Reuben or Brisket sandwich. Friday fish fry is good but could have more fish for the price. Delicious desserts!

I picked up two corned beef dinners to go for St Paddy's. $25 for the both. OK amount of meat that tasted the same. Three small half's of potato, a few pieces of carrots and a sliver of cabbage, topped with a slice of bread and a side of horseradish sauce. Went out for a Guinness later to another establishment...

Thank you for stopping by on such a busy day, we're glad you gave us praise for our good service and quality corned beef. It is impossible for a small Deli to compete on pricing with a full service liquor establishment on one of the busiest bar days of the year. We hope you understand and hope to see you... More

This is the place we go when we get a craving for corned beef or the best Rueben around. Prompt service. Quaint and clean café.

Stopped by purely by chance, so glad we did. Food was excellent, prices average but what you would expect to place. Location is also very nice, honestly didn't expect to find this little gem in a semi industrial type area, well worth popping in if your passing

Loved this place the first few years it was open, but it's not the same. The sandwiches have gotten skimpy and the corned beef is dry. Prices have gone up too. Head into Milwaukee if you're looking for a great Reuben. My son says the cookies are still good.

Dear Debi, We are very concerned about your recent review of our Deli. Throughout our 10 years as owners we have been overwhelmed by compliments especially about our corned beef and pastrami, and experienced very few comments similar to yours. Our business friends, owners of "Jakes Deli" have enjoyed them as well in our joint meetings as we continue to... More

A great little Deli that serves great sandwiches. Although it can be a little confusing for the first timer, the food is worth it. One of the best sandwich places around.

What a great find! This deli is in downtown Waukesha, and worth the drive. We live an hour away, and I was looking for a quality dinner for my wife and I; and I stumbled across the deli on yelp and tripadvisor. What a FIND! The soups and sandwiches are amazing, the bakery fresh, you can't go wrong!
