“Maybe It Was Better Once. . .Maybe”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Uncomfortable booths; cold; aging. Poor service. Average matzah ball soup. Poor matzah brie with fried salami. Why go to be disappointed?

“Disappointing - cockroaches and flies in evidence”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

There was a cockroach strolling through the restaurant and flies buzzing - bad enough but the order was wrong too. The service was fast enough and there was a good crowd in for lunch. Not one for us in future though.

“quick hitter”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Deli food is ok. More of a place that you eat if you want to feel filled up but quality is just adequate. Actually surprised they are still in business after all these years. Must make it up in volume because when I go there , there are very few patrons in the place

“I wish I understood”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

I sincerely wish that I understood why so many people go to this restaurant. The service is adequate, the ambience is what it is, but the food is just so VERY BAD. Not much else to say - just bad food.

“Jerry's Dirty Deli”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

This place has been closed down more than once for getting a D from the county.

Yes, they have a lot of diner options but so does say Mel's diner and the food is even better at Mel's.

I will say that their moatza ball soup is pretty good albeit very salty.
