Yummy food and accomodating to substitute coleslaw for sour kraut in the Rueben. Corned beef always very lean and thin sliced!

Absolutely the best Pastrami in New Mexico. I'm from Los Angeles, so I prefer the California style. You can also get it New York style. The Rubin Sandwich is my favorite. They even offer it with your choice of Roast Beef or Pastrami. The Rubin...is huge. I order it knowing I will only eat half now and the other half later! This is the store I frequent because I only live about 3 miles from it.More

My son and I went today to get a sandwich each. I ordered the patty melt and he the pastrami burger. The prices listed were $6.99 and $10.59 respectively. When the bill was generated it came to over $24 with tax. I questioned it and...the counterman said "Haven't you noticed the price of meat has gone up. The posted prices are not correct." My sandwich was $2 higher and my son's $3.50 higher than the posted price. There were no signs or postings anywhere that the prices were not correct. They were good and fresh sandwiches. Too bad for them I'll never go back to any of this franchise's locations. 30% increase w/o any postings is ridiculous and possibly illegal. Certainly unethical.More
