Nearby bank didn't open until 10 so we stopped here to get a cup of coffee. They don't serve coffee nor breakfast, although they were open during breakfast hour (a quarter to 10.) I'm so confused. Plenty of seats at that hour, and men's bathroom was clean.

Very good kosher deli food. Everything you would expect. Plenty of coupons. Pickles, pickled tomatoes and very good cole slaw on the table. Very good service and large dining room.

Been going here for years both eating in the restaurant or taking the food home. I switch back snd forth with the sandwiches however I mainly get the tastemaster on rye with dressing on the side and a Dr. Brown's cream soda. The tastemaster is a combination of the different meats, and like all their sandwiches it is piled high... More

Zan's (located in the old cousins 2 and Ben's location) offers its guests the best in kosher food. Pickles and coleslaw start of the meal, and then the real fun begins. Matzah ball soup, chicken in the pot, beef and barley soup, gigantic overstuffed sandwiches (roast beef, turkey, or even tongue) hot dogs, steak, chicken dishes galore, knish, and my... More

I love this restaurant. It always takes me back to my youth and visiting grandma. The kreplach soup is a family favorite. The square Knishes are great and the hotdogs are kosher. I buy jelly rings and cookies here. They even have frozen items to bring home. The stuffed cabbage is fantastic.

The best New York Pastrami outside NYC. The sandwiches at this classic Jewish deli are to die for. They are enormous, so big you have a hard time fitting a bite in your mouth. Try the pastrami, the beef brisket, or the corned beef. Have a classic potato knish with it and maybe a cream soda. Their soups are delicious... More

The food was very good and our server was excellent. The matzo ball soup is not to be missed. The dinner plates are large.

Cole slaw, rye bread, and pickles, and that's before you have even ordered your food. Friendliness is not to be found here but great food is--- rib eye streaks, Hungarian goulash, chicken in a pot, and giant hotdogs! All cooked just like grandma would make it. And if you want a sandwich, Zan's has a wide variety to chose from-... More

We used the GPS and it directed us to Zans, 20 minutes away but we would have driven further after we ate our sandwich. The Pickles fabulous & the Coleslaw great. Atmosphere just ok but the service wonderful and the food fantastic. We will return again and again

Thank Bklynli
