“Old Style New York Deli”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

The minute you step inside the door you are transported from Houston to NYC. Fixtures, set-up, servers dress, deli cases all reminded me of old-fashioned Jewish delis. Large portions of delicious food. Wished I could have gone back for lunch while in Houston, but thoroughly enjoyed my bagel and lox. My husband had the blintzes and there were the best ever! Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. Just the right amount of cheese filling and blueberries on top. Google directions were a bit confusing. Deli is to the east of Westheimer.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Very nice food and service, the sandwiches were $$ but huge easily one is shared by two very hungry people. Typical NYC deli atmosphere and menu.

“Some of the Best Deli Food in Texas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Outside of NYC, this is one of the best delis you can experience. Not cheap but worth the price. Be prepared to wait for a table. Centrally located across from the Galleria. You will love it.

“POOR ATTITUDE”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Good deli food served with a poor attitude by many employees including staff.
If you are from NYC you will feel at home.

“My favorite sandwich place in Houston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

You never can pick a bad sandwich. HUGE! Love the open face ruben. Service is good and you can expect to wait at lunch time.

Chopped liver is very good and I highly recommend it to anyone. While I'm not jewish I really appreciate the quality of all the jewish luncheon meats.
