Old Fashion Jewish Style Deli/Restaurant

A landmark in Livingston for years, the deli still holds up as prime. Smoked fish/appetizing is just as good, and there varied menu offers anything from matzah ball soup, salads, roasted chicken to hot dogs. Spacious seating with little atmosphere, one can eat here for three meals a day. Service... read more

We have been here many times over last 15 years. Does not disappoint after day outside, comfortable room/seats with nice staff. Prices up a little but quality and generous portions have not changed. Awesome corned beef, pastrami, tongue, and brisket. We always order the hot sandwiches, some on potato pancakes. Bubbie, King David and #24 are favorites. Fries and onion... More

Went with 5 couples early on a Saturday night. They have several large tables to accommodate large groups. Restaurant was pretty empty and had a "cold" feeling though the actual temperature was comfortable. Service was very good, especially for a large group (but of course the restaurant was pretty empty). Food was good and portions were large but prices were... More

The salads were very large as were the... More

Came here on a Friday night for an early dinner around 5 pm. Place was completely empty which was good for us, as we were headed to the Pru Center. Service was quick as no one was here. Food portions were large and very tasty. They start you off with free pickles and cole slaw. Food is a bit expensive,... More
