The legend is true. This is THE best deli in Cleveland. The food is fantastic and staff super. We visited for the weekend and had to make our way there. Moe and staff make us feel right at home. We tried the corned beef, fries, pickles and potato latkes. All 10 out of 10.

Want a great corn beef sandwich, this is the place to go. Stacked a mile high, really enough for 2-3 sandwiches. Can't go wrong here. Also other sandwiches & food.

Visited their newest location in Independence for a pre movie dinner. A bit more ambiance than the original location, but still the same great corned beef. Giant sandwiches are great for sharing if you have a smaller appetite. They also offer a nice covered patio. A nice location for after work happy hour

Passing through Cleveland we just got lucky and stumbled in here. I usually avoid red meat but Jewish style delis are an exception. One of us had corn beef and the other pastrami. Both on Rye. Nothing else. Great pickle. My dad had a deli. It was almost like that. Bread wasn't with crisp crust but good rye nonetheless. We... More

Totally worth the hype! No sightseeing trip to Cleveland is complete unless you go to Slyman's. We went for breakfast and they have plenty of menu options that don't have corned beef in them, but the corned beef plate is out of this world. We went early on a Saturday and got right in. So welcoming, will go back when... More

This is the best corn beef sandwich that you will ever eat .this shop has beef in business for 35 years and still draws a line outside of the building and on some day you can hardly get in. This is because they offer a quality product, a sandwich that could feed four people. Always fresh always delicious. Slymans will... More

Slyman's restaurant is renowned for their corn beef and Reuben sandwiches. It is definitely on the list of restaurants to visit for our out of towners! This corn beef is so tender and flavorful and they give you enough Forbes beef for two nice sandwiches. The sandwiches are pricey but worth it. My husband and I split our sandwich and... More

Be sure to be extra hungry, don't eat an anything for hours prior to getting there for lunch ,in fact be sure you have the day off to really enjoy this lunch; a scoop of potato salad should do you in!
