Seems to be an authentic USA diner experience. My son had a salad which was very fresh and he enjoyed it. I had fries and a Philly steak sandwich. A bit salty but generally very good. He then had the goulash which was very tasty,...More

Sarges is exactly what you would expect from a classic NY deli, including the tasty pre-meal pickles, massive sandwiches and Jewish dairy favorites. The crowd is well balanced between local residents and savvy travelers. On our last trip we made a point of eating here...More
