“Fun atmosphere - so/so food”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

Typical deli. Very busy lunch mixed lunch crowd, may be more retirees than anything but fun atmosphere. Listening to people talk was more fun than anything. Deifnitely visit the pickle bar, that was cool and good! Dont drink the water, tasted like it came from the river. Sandwiches were huge, had a reuben. It was very dry and somewhat tasteless. Sweet potato fries were really good however, crunchy. Price was quite high for the quality. Oh yeah, bakery items look much better than they taste. Got a few appricot cookies and a few chocolate raspberry pastries - both thrown away.

“Nice Deli”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

A neighborhood must. This is a traditional Jewish deli with a huge menu. The service is fine, and the food enjoyable. There is pickle and side dish bar that adds to the charm.

“Just Okay - Doesn't deserve all the hype”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

I head to hymies once every couple months. the food is always good enough and the prices are okay.i've never had anything i didnt like, but i've also never had anything i loved either. the matzo ball soup is homemade, most of the hot sandwiches are worthwhile too. it's a popular joint with a good atmosphere but 'just okay' is what comes to mind. it's a step above 1 am diner grub, but that's not really saying much.
