Not where one would usually think to go for a Friday nite fish fry, but it's excellent! And you can order online and specify when you'll be there to pick it up. Fantastic sandwiches and a great staff. Best St. Pat's Day corned been dinners & sandwiches I've ever had. Eating area not big on atmosphere but never disappointed in... More

I love this deli and bakery. The staff is very friendly and your orders (take out or dine in) are always correct and delivered timely. One of the best reuben sandwiches around in addition to many varieties of soups (all homemade) and sandwiches. The bakery items are very good. I have had them cater bakery items for me and I... More

A fun deli with fast counter service and excellent food. Never have had a bad meal. Most recently went with my husband. We each ordered reuben sandwiches that came with a side and a pickle. They were super delicious and so large that we easily could have split one between the two of us. Hand sliced tender corned beef prepared... More

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.
