If you want a great kosher pastrami sandwich, here's the place (but don't get as excited about their corned beef or roast beef). That being said, it is almost as if they take pride in the downtrodden look, from the sign outside the entrance (should be given prize for ugliest sign in LA) to an indoor ambience that suggests that the owners just don't give a damn about the setting. Still, the exceptional pastrami enables me to look past those negatives.

We visited this deli on the recommendation of someone who had visited years prior to our visit. She said that the sandwich was so good, she had never forgotten it. I have to admit, it was a fantastic sandwich. I had the pastrami on rye, which is a Kosher deli classic, and this one was up there among the best. The service was pretty good. It wasn't crowded, and once we ordered, the food came fairly quickly. The atmosphere is that of a typical deli. It's designed for efficiency, with less emphasis on the decor. The booths were cozy, though.

Best deli except possibly Chicago -- nothing to compare in Maryland.
