“Best Corned Beef Sandwich in the Universe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

When I say Universe I mean on the planet have never had a better Corned Beef sandwich. Our server was superb and impressed me so much she got a "C" note for a tip. We were all there shooting a short film for a music video for Holiday season 2013 still a secret. What was even most impressive is the deli was very clean. Hats off to Mo the owner and our server she was fabulous but I will not mention her name as she is a female. You will know if she waits on you as pleasant, efficient and accommodating.

“New York Deli in Cleveland OH”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

The sandwiches are huge. Corned Beef so tender it will melt in your mouth. Chicken salad bursting with flavor. Menu has numerous offerings. As it is over a 2 hour drive for me; usually eat sandwiches there; then pounds of items to bring home. Take out is very well packed, all items brought home are fresh and tasty. Loafs of bread are above normal size.

“Best Corned Beef EVER !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Slyman's Deli serves wonderful food at a good price. The portions are generous. The Corned Beef is the best ever but if you are planning on a St. Patty's Day feast, call ahead to reserve a sandwich or two. They sell out every year.

“Good delicatessen sandwiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

We used trip advisor to find this place after our visit to the A CHRISTMAS STORY house. Based on the reviews, we all went with the corned beef. Superb. I was going to order pastrami, but after I saw the size of the sandwiches I wound up splitting one with another member of our group. We were both stuffed. The price range is misleading. All of the sandwiches are from $10 to around $15 plus a drink & tip, you're at $20 easy.
