Needed to grab a quick bite and was craving pastrami. Slyman's came up top rated for corned beef. But no pastrami. Nevertheless it was yummy!!!! And portions were the BIGGEST ever! One of our friends had a salad with a mound of fresh carved turkey, also delicious. Sour pickles were great, too. French fries okay a bit greasy. No kidding... More

We had the biggest sandwiches we've ever seen. We were driving on vacation and it took us 3 days to finish them. What a wonderful value. Plus, of course, they were delicious. The waitress was great too.

We went there while on vacation and had a reuben and a pastrami sandwich. Both were huge. You can only eat a half. Really good meat on both sandwiches. Good service and fun Cleveland deli atmosphere. I highly recommend. But, the sandwiches were $16 each so I think splitting one is the way to go!

If you are only here in town once you need to see Slymans. Not for the faint of heart or the calorie conscientious - big eats served by a great staff. None better!

The sandwiches are huge! You'll pay for it at $15, but they are worth it, and you can always save half and have another meal later. You can eat in the small restaurant or take it to go. Get there early or close to close if you don't want to wait too long. They do take credit cards. It's simply... More

Absolutely delicious! Biggest and most flavorful sandwiches in the world! The Rueben is amazing. Don't eat breakfast and they're only open until 2:30 p.m.

Best and biggest cornbeef sandwich that you will ever taste. You will have to split this sandwich. THis restaurant offers take out only. Long lines but, worth it.
