“EXCELLENT DELI-STYLE FOOD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

I have been to a couple of there other south Florida locations, and they are all great. I recently went to this location with my girlfriend, who is originally from Germany. She loves the deli-style cooking and potato pancakes, as well as their other dishes. I love the seafood and the chicken. They have a great bakery and you may order take-out. She loves the Rye bread and always buys some to go. Very good food at reasonable prices. Two thumbs up!!

“We love this place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

This place has amazing rye bread! I've tried probably 8 different items from their menu so far, and I can only recall one that I didn't like. But that was more my preference - the quality was still top notch.

The service is good, even when they are very busy.

The worst part? The wait to get seated. It can be 10 - 15 minutes or more during peak times. But I'd say that is a good sign... :o)

If you've never been here - go. The menu is large enough that you should have no problem finding something you will like.

I highly recommend this place.

“Good Deli at a Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Usually when you have a chain type deli, you can expect less than "OK". This is different, good quality, sufficient portions for a reasonable price and good service. They have extra items for the dinner menu, but anything is available all day long. Do not miss the bakery, Key Lime Mousse Cake is better than any pie.

“What do I know--I know it's good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

What do I know--I'm neither Jewish nor a New Yorker. But i do know that when I want good and plenty deli food, this is where I go. It was the first deli that I visited when I moved here from Texas and the place that I return to. I've had salad (huge and fresh) and I've had meatloaf (enough for another meal) and I've had Reubens (giant and dripping). And, I've come back for a repeat of each of them. You might wait a bit to get the check, but that's just because the servers seem to expect that you will sit and stay a spell.

“Authentic NY Deli Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

There were about 10 in our party and we got there late enough on Saturday night that we didn't have to wait for a table. I ordered the turkey Reuben which was ok but I would advise the regular corned beef Reuben instead. My sandwich didn't have enough flavor--too much turkey and not enough sauerkraut or sauce which tasted more like a bland French Dressing than traditional Thousand Island. The coleslaw is creamy, delicious and celery-seed free and...xxxtra bonus points because this is a rarity: they have seedless rye bread!!!

Located in The Fountains shopping district sort of behind Chili's
