This is a great spot for any meal. The owner knows most of his customers. It is a fun place where locals go frequently. We ate several meals there and the menu has a nice variety of foods! The "blue Aurora" grilled chicken sandwich was really good and the sweet potato fries with their sauce are the best I've ever... More

Deli delightful. Reuben, corned beef sandwich, matzo ball soup ... All delicious. Careful what you order. The portions are large and you could share. Service akin to any luncheonette ... Satisfactory.

Visited this unfussy casual deli with family. Loved the Matzo Ball soup, in fact everything we had was good. Service was OK and prices were very reasonable. Looking forward to the next visit.

This deli/restaurant has been family-run and in Aurora for many years. It is a very popular spot where families know that they can get a very good home-cooked meal in a pleasant atmosphere run by a very personable family. They are a treasure to have in town!
