This is the place to go if you are in Newark and want to be sure to have a great lunch. It is an all local atmosphere (very down to earth) and you'll probably see local lawyers, judges and other professionals there. The food is excellent and definitely worth a lunch or two.

I hadn't been to Hobbys in several years, but wound up having lunch there today. It's a typical deli atmosphere, which is to say no atmosphere, but the food is delicious. The standbys (Pastrami, Corned beef and real turkey) are wonderful and the sandwiches overstuffed. The chopped liver is also very good. I had a bowl of chicken soup with vegetables and matzoh balls (I turned down the additional noodles!) that was so filling I could barely eat my chicken salad platter. That came with so much food on it that it could have been shared by 2 or 3 We ended with a platter of fruit and some delicious chocolate covered macaroons. To my surprise, parking was not a problem. The friendly owners-a family-- are all bustling about the dining room, filled with business-men.

Do something with the place, it needs help. The corned beef and pastrami is delitious. Don't order mushed potatoes however

All I had was a pastrami sandwich and fried onion rings, but that was enough to convince me that this restaurant is the real deal. Cheerful servers, dated "decor", no parking nearby - who cares? The first bite of my pastrami sandwich was like a mouthful of heaven. And the pickles and green tomatoes they serve for free are as good as it gets.

Went based on tripadvisor reviews and were very pleased. We had three different sandwiches and they were all delicious and the service was great also, everything was very fresh and it was a very welcoming place!
