Started with a hot cup of noodle soup and it was just what we need after a mistabl morning of driving in the rain. Make sure to get their signature Ruben sandwiches too. Abe's gives the NYC delis a run for their money!

Their matzah ball soup. And stuffed cabbage are good. Their meats are pretty good especially the pastrami. They do have good rye bread. But I found their desserts lacking. Something extra. Service was pretty good

We went out of our way to stop at the restaurant. It may have kosher ingredients but it is not a kosher restaurant. It is not under supervision, it has both dairy and meat items on the menu and is open on Saturdays. The word...More
