I've been eating at Brents for years. The food is very good and the service is excellent. The waitress we usually have reminded me of some of the deli's I've been to in New York. Great food and quick service. What more can you ask for. Brents does get crowded on the weekends, so come early.

I and my family decided to take an order for our lunch through delivering. Fortunately, the customer service is too fast for picking up the phone, not more than three rings and that so really great. The was delivered, less than 40mins that was too fast, then we enjoyed our luscious lunch.

The wait staff is wonderful. They are very friendly and attentive to all your needs even when it is busy. The pastrami sandwich is excellent and the breakfast menu is great. Highly recommend.

I love this place. Our favorite is their Cabbage Soup and fresh made Rye Bread. There is nothing like it anywhere else. I will say the only negative I have is their water does not taste very good.

It really does not matter what you order, you absolutely will not be disappointed. I personally love the pastrami dip, I have been enjoying them for 35 years. It's so nice to walk in and see the same people working there all these years. We have had friends take us to other deli's but there is no comparison. The portion... More

This place was packed but our party of 4 waited less than 10 minutes. If you go, try their kosher dills. The menu never stops; pages and pages of everything from beef tongue to smoked fish to bacon and eggs. The service is excellent, too, even when it's crazy busy.

There are 2 Brent's locations and each are just as good as the other! Consistency and portions to make you happy for days! (At least til the leftovers last!) I'd challenge anyone to find a better deli that brings back memories of grandpa and grandma enjoying and sharing their memories of the best food ever!

I'm never disappointed with this restaurant. Great food. We always come here for breakfast, it can get pretty busy but the service is always good. It's totally worth the wait. They take the time to refill your cup of coffee which by the way it's amazing! This deli has been our favorite for years.

The corned beef is great - ask for lean. Everything is great. I have been going to delis in the valley since i was a kid ( I am 61.5) and nothing comes close. Art's corned beef is good but Brent's knocks them all out. I would not step foot in a Jerry's unless I had a cold and needed... More
