“Yummy, Quick Lunch”
Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

I took a class for two days in June, and stopped here both days. They had a great lunch special of a chicken salad sandwich, chips and a pop (I added soup for add'l. charge) for about $13. The chicken salad was awesome and fresh. I ate it both days. Service was quick and the order process was simple. You can sit at a counter looking towards the street or at a table. They have just about every sandwich choice available, plus lots of sides. It's a good stop for a quick meal.

“Great Deli”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

The corned Beef and the Pastrami are to die for! I was not thrilled with the chopped liver but it was not bad.There is a nearby Catholic High School. Many of the students come for something to eat after school when they are playing sports.

“Good for lunch”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Good, solid deli. Huge menu. Friendly staff. Perhaps a bit pricey. Try the lean corned beef or turkey club sandwiches. Huge salads are a good deal.

“Not sure what this place is”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

We tried to eat here several times- it is conveniently located. But they don't have fresh food. The waiter (the guy behind the cash register) took a very long time. Supposedly they cater, so perhaps that is their main business.

“Go to McDonalds”
Reviewed March 9, 2012

Extremely overpriced. No delivery. Rude staff. I paid $15 for a sandwich, side of pasta salad, and a drink! And it took 20 minutes for them to make it! I only get a 30 minute lunch! Ordering and paying are at opposite ends, and if you don't choose the right end, a very rude employee will point you where to go with a roll of the eyes. Don't waste your time or money.
