“Good food, unhappy waitresses”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Returned to Toojay's for their delicious pastrami sandwiches and was shocked at the way the waitresses were at each others throats. They could have paid more attention to their customers and less to being so confrontational with each other.
After they ignored us and made us wait while they argued, they were suddenly in a hurry to shut the place down for the night. They suddenly moved at the speed of light.

“NY Deli in Lake Worth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

This is a true New York Deli located in downtown Lake Worth. The sandwiches are amazing on the most delicious bread. So many options for breakfast, it's almost impossible to choose. You can order the baked goods for takeout while you're dining so you don't have to wait. I loved this place. We went there twice during a 4 day visit to Lake Worth. If we had stayed longer, we would have gone again.

“Best bagels ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

What a wondeful place for breakfast. I've never had a bagel before with so much in toppings (poppy seeds) that ir seemed like there were 2 tops instead of a top and a bottom. Delicious. Wonderful service as well.

“Very rude hostess - OK food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

I was a waiter at a very nice restaurant for over 15 years, and know a thing or two about the restaurant business. I was also the manager for a few years. It is VERY important that the hostess greets you with a friendly smile and makes you feel welcome when you first walk in. The hostess at this restaurant --- a miserable older woman --- made us feel like we were bothering her. When she tried to put us at a table near the back, I asked her very politely if we could sit somewhere else. She did seat us at another table, but she gave me an attitude, pretty much threw the menus down on the table, and walked away. No "Enjoy your dinner" or "Someone will be right with you" from her mouth. WOW!!!! I still have no idea why we stayed. But we were hungry, and tried to pretend it didn't happen. The food is just OK. They could offer us free food for the next 10 years, and we would still never go back.

“Consistent, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

We've been going to this restaurant for years, and are never disappointed - whether we are eating there or taking food out. The menu is extensive, the food is always good and the staff works so hard to please customers. The deli options are vast; the soups, salads and main dishes are consistently good. This is not an expensive restaurant, and the value is good.
