Was at a customer meeting and they brought the sandwiches in. I had both a corn beef and pastrami (half of each).. good sandwiches and compatible with the best NYC delis. I am not the biggest fan of overstuffed sandwiches and the food came with a loaf of Rye bread to make more sandwiches. Pickles were yummy too

this is what corned beef sandwich is all about! anytime you go there will be a line but patience-it is worth the wait;located in questionable part of town, but the constant flow of patrons(along with the fact its not open at night) makes it safe! you will not be disappointed.

This restaurant is a Cleveland icon, and rightfully so! You better go there hungry....not only is the food fantastic, the corned beef sandwiches especially are huge! You will not regret the visit.

I generally get sandwiches "to go" from Slyman's. The service is fast, friendly and courteous. The corned beef is always lean, never too salty, and in massive quantity on each sandwich, Is it any wonder Presidents Bush (43), Clinton and Obama have all stopped there while visiting CLE.

I eat there right often. Take out is fast and courteous, and the dine-in service is equally top notch.

I've tried other sandwiches their but the best one is their signature corned beef sandwiches. A good time to visit is 10 am -11am to get your deli sandwiches for lunch. After that, prepare to wait in a long line which is sometime out the door. The food is that good and is worth the wait.Their service is fast, it's... More

This corned beef is the best in Cleveland, hands down, perhaps some of the best I've ever had in my life. Don't expect a glitzy place. It's about as diner-y as it gets. The awesome breakfasts and HUGE corned beef lunches make up for it though. You get what you pay for, and at ~$12 for a sandwich it's definitely... More

Nirvana! The Holy Grail of corned beef sandwiches. Not only the best in Cleveland, most likely the best in the nation. And the nicest and best servers. They truly bust their butts for the customer.

Read on tripadvisor this was the #1 place to eat in Cleveland and being that my husband and I love a Reuben sandwich, we had to try it. There is not too much parking available on the street, we were able to find a spot though. Go inside and were seated immediately, there was no wait and this was at... More
