The menu is a little confusing, but the food is good. Usually packed at lunchtime. Fun spot to grab a quick bite.

I eat here on occasion and am never impressed. I stopped in tonight because they were offering a whole deli sandwich for the price of a half. Pastrami on marble rye was my choice. The pastrami was somewhat tough with gristle. The marble rye fell apart as I ate the sandwich and I ended up eating most of the pastrami... More

We stopped in here for a quick lunch for the family on a Sunday. First thing we noticed is that a lot of the tables were not cleared from previous customers. We decided to give it try anyway. There are tables outside which is nice, we elected to eat indoors. Not much room inside to eat, tables are jammed together.... More

Stopped in for breakfast this past Sunday. Was awesome and I felt like I was back in NY, eating a real NY deli. The service was great and the food very tasty. Had breakfast sandwiches and cheese grits, both excellent. Highly recommend this deli for a nice meal.

If not for Courtney and Dennis this would have been a one-star rating. Counter service was very poor. A barely there greeting with no eye contact or smile that the entire stage for the counter interaction. Food was moderate at best. Expensive lunch at almost $30 for poor service and barely adequate food.

Stopped in here on a Saturday morning for some cheap eats. $2.99 breakfast seemed like 3 scrambled eggs, grits, and Cuban toast. Added a side of corned beef hash that was homemade and German style with some vinegar in it. Good.

Stopped in for Breakfast and had eggs benedict which had asparagus garnish and a ton of crab, very tasty. It included a free bloody mary, how can you go wrong?

We stopped by for a quick breakfast and were glad we did. After we sat down, a waitress brought us menus and told us we needed to order at the counter. The food was served quickly and as ordered. The food was very good and the price was very good also. When we are in the area we will return.

My husband had this for lunch and says pretty good. Got a club w their famous dill pickles they make. I'm the pickle expert and they are fresh, crisp and cold chunky slices. Deli is clean and has quick friendly service. Parking okay even during event.
