Admittedly, my standards are pretty high. I was raised on Brookline's "fressers" at Jack & Marion's and all the usuals from the NYC iconic delis: Carnegie, Stage, Katz's and Ben's. Now a southerner, circumstances no longer afford me the opportunity to enjoy those offerings. When I heard that there's deli worth driving for, I trekked 95 miles to Gershon's. They state proudly that their roast beef, brisket, pastrami and corned beef are all made on premises and that "all their sandwiches are fat". We ordered brisket au jus on marble rye and pastrami & corned beef combination on rye. The bread was very good deli rye, just not great. Also, it was thick cut, which was nice, but it threw off the bread-to-meat ratio considerably, something I feel most sandwich mavens contend is essential. To err on the side of too much meat is human, the opposite is not divine - especially if the meat juiciness is a little lacking. The corned beef & pastrami combo was served tepid, one-half of the sandwich with no discernible pastrami. The pickle was room temp and limp, devoid of bite-snap. The brisket sandwich (also tepid) came with horseradish sauce on the side, tasty but watery, I asked what happened to the "au jus" on the menu and the waitress said they bring it if asked... so we asked. We received a little side-bowl of chicken broth (my best guess), not the dark deep tasting JUS into which you'd hope to dip homemade brisket. The server did her best to explain the discrepancy, but frankly she just didn't see the difference and suggested we ask the owner why they do it that way. The bottom line? It's just too far from NYC, literally and figuratively, to expect comprehension of a culinary art form. If you're looking for a true deli "fix", this may or may not suffice. It depends on how much your standards differ from mine. If you happen to be going to the low country of South Carolina, seek out shrimp and grits or steam table seafood buffets instead.
