Ben’s has been the go-to place for deli specialties for years. I grew up with this cuisine and really appreciate it when I’m in the area. Sadly, this type of food is tough to find where I live, outside of the NYC area, and even getting harder to find around NYC as well. The occasion was a family gathering in... More

I went here last week for a hot pastrami sandwich and I barely got my sandwich home to inhale it! The pastrami was lean and juicy and most definitely worth the $15.00!

The sandwiches at Ben's must have a half pound of delicious, tender meat in them! We usually share an extra lean pastrami on rye, a potato pancake or knish. A generous bowl of cole slaw & pickles is brought to the table as you peruse the menu. Old fashioned cream or root beer soda are always available -- even celery... More

This is the kind of deli that sadly is dying, and seems to be only available in New York. Visiting from Boston, I know this! We were seated right away, the beer was cold, the waitress knew the menu, which is extensive. The food was fresh and tasty, and the portions were so big, we had dinner the next evening.... More

Went with my son to Ben's and had an awesome Pastrami sandwich with Russian dressing and yummy cole slaw. The store made round knishes were also good, but the seven layer chocolate cake was a little dry. All and all, you can't go wrong with the food here.

Considering that the restaurant is always busy, we were seated quickly, served quickly and served excellent food. My roast beef was fresh and lean. The potato kinish was so good, I ordered a second one to go!

Sadly the Kosher Deli is a dying breed. Ben's offers a broad menu of traditional Kosher Deli at fair prices (like many things they have been slowly going up). Still the food is fresh and well presented. My family prefers this location (there are several others) and we come here a few times a month for our deli "fix".

I live in Florida now after retiring. For many years I lived five minutes from Ben's, always great corned beef & pastrami, love their Cole slaw, and great kinishes. Always my first stop when visiting the old neighborhood. Please open a Ben's in Sarasota, Florida!!!

The food here is excellent. It all tastes homemade. You have to try their matzo ball soup. It's amazing!

If you can survive the traffic jam in the parking lot, this place is definitely worth a visit! It has everything your kosher deli menu could provide...and then some! The classic pickle and coleslaw are served upon seating, along with water. This place functions like a well-oiled machine. We ate lunch here twice in two days because my boyfriend loved... More

To some, delicatessen is something you put between two slices of bread. To me, it's a calling. I am committed to preserving the traditional cuisine of my Eastern European heritage, amidst all that's required to operate a modern restaurant. This is our pledge, from the Ben's family to you: Fresh food, freshly prepared and courteously served in a clean, well-maintained restaurant faithfully observing the Kosher dietary laws. I urge you to bring anything less to my personal attention by calling 1-888-344-BENS or filling out my "Ask Ronnie" form and submitting it with your questions or comments. Your complete satisfaction is our goal. Any concerns will receive my prompt attention. Ronnie Dragoon - Owner
