Hobby' s is a very busy sometimes crowded place for lunch but it is so well worth the wait. The deli is absolutely delicious ! The sandwiches are quite large . Great pickles too. People never sem to mind the wait because they know the food is so good. Since Hobby's is in Newark many professional people go there for lunch
Eg: lawyers, judges and business people who work in the vicinity. Many people come from the surrounding suburbs for the excellent food.

I worked in Newark, NJ for over 42 years and this is by far the best place to get food. The sandwiches are huge, bread is fresh, and the salads are perfect. Off of Broad St. location is not far from other attractions, especially the PRU Center. I'm currently on jury duty and I visit Hobby's frequently. You can't go wrong with this establishment. A great place to order food for delivery and to take home.

If you are in Newark - maybe for Jury Duty - this is the place to go for lunch. Great sandwiches in a traditional deli that hasn't changed in recent memory as well as lots of comfort foods including a decent chicken soup with matzo balls. This place is a true gem and should be given the protection of national landmark status.

A great deli in the heart of Newark with great food, large portions, and reasonable pricing. A great place to stop off before a game at the arena which is just a few blocks away. The place has not changes in 50 years which gives it a unique character. I suggest the pastrami sandwich or the meatloaf, both will fill you up and prepare you for the game on a winters night. Get there early as it fills up fast.

it's incredible but i first went to hobby's about 24 yrs ago when i was working in newark. a colleague asked me to go and i didn't want to but decided to and was i ever surprised. i luved it and went back dozens of times. haven't been there is 15 yrs or so and decided to stop by when i was in newark last week. parking is not the best but it was worth the hassle.

the sandwiches were just as i remembered them and even better. i got a pastrami sandwich (don't tell my husband!) on their fabulous rye bread and had it smothered with russian dressing. i was so full after half a sandwich that i had to wrap up the other half to take home. of course the place was packed as i got there at lunch time but it was always packed with people who work and live all around newark.

i luv their attention to customer service with servers and just about all their staff that is attentive, welcoming and customer oriented. i wish there was a deli like hobby's where i live.
