“Best Deli in 5 miles - But it is the only Deli in 5 miles”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

Corned Beef Sandwitch should be great at a Potomac Deli - but just OK. Eggs and Lox - very bad - not the classic. I would go to another Deli if one were close to me, but a dine there so it can't be too bad - just average. Servers try very hard to please - Big Plus

“Average deli that is average in every way”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

We in Maryland have always longed for a NYC style deli. Those of us who are natives of Maryland and D.C. have seen many deli's come and go. Brooklyn deli is unfortunately another example of a "so-so" deli. It is expensive and the food is average to mediocre. I got off to a bad start when I asked for pickles which are commonly received in a deli. We were brought one small pickle for each of us and when are faces appeared dismayed, we were told that the new rule is one pickle a person and if it is eaten, we can receive another.
The matzoh ball soup was average and made me long for the wonderful Carnegie Deli rendition in NYC. I guess we will just have to keep longing for a deli that is "the real thing" and just accept this average rendition of a new york experience

“Yuck”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

Terrible scrambled eggs, terrible low-quality bacon, butter on the table that had been out for hours and was soupy. I won't be back.

If you are a fan of the whole NY Deli thing, try this place out. Good portions and great value. Try their breakfast...wow! The Pastrami is on point and the cookies are a must. Happy Eating!
