Haven't been here for a while but it was very very good. So glad I stopped. Every time I eat here or take out the food is fresh piled high and tasty. You would be hard pressed NOT to like it yourself. Always look forward to eating here.

I was back east for a family function. Compliments of the Save The Deli page on Facebook I became aware of Hobby's. Although originally from Newark, I had never been to Hobby's was not even aware of it. Having a bit of available time and as the Deli's of my youth have closed, it seemed a good idea to give...

So the place is also a restaurant, not only a deli. Had the beef sausage and was happy to hear the soup of the day was goulash, which was one of the best soups I ever had. Really! Service was not the most efficient but super friendly and hospitable. Really a good place for lunch

I went there for breakfast twice on a short visit. Terrific, classic deli, with delicious breakfast options from sweet to savoury. Very friendly staff as well.

Great place to eat! Sandwiches have so much meat on it, they are hard to fit your mouth. We enjoyed the corn beef and pastrami, and the turkey club! Absolutely delicious. My husband and daughter love the pickles and we always have to take some to go. Staff is very friendly and make you feel right at home. You never... More

On our family trip to NY City we went to a couple of restaurants, all of which were huge disappointments. On our way to the Newark airport we stopped at Hobby's Delicatessen. OMG! This place is THE best. If you are looking a real Jewish deli with superb food, look no further, you have found it! Highly recommended.

Some years ago I worked in Newark and sometimes went to lunch with colleagues at Hobby's but it had been more than a decade since I had been there. However, while on jury duty I walked over for a sandwich for lunch. The sandwich was pretty good and very large but very expensive - $15 for roast beef and chopped... More

The hot dogs are the best I've ever eaten. OK- 2 stories to back this up. For a few years now, my best friend and I go to the Newark Museum chili and beer fundraiser every year. He comes from Philadelphia just to eat the Hobby's hot dogs, the only non-chili food at the event. Perfect seasoning and mix of... More
