“Bernie's the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

There isn't one thing I've had at Bernie's that isn't mouthwatering, My favorite is his reuben followed by the chicken salad. My favorite deli for sure.

“Great deli”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Bernie's has great sandwiches, but sometimes service is very slow, particularly during busy times. They seem to get quite busy at lunch hour during the week, due to proximity to the courthouse. Their meats are first rate, all their breads are great. They have a curry chicken salad that is out of this world. All the baked goods are great as well.

“Great deli near GMU”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

This is a great deli, a short block from GMU. Wonderful sandwiches (I had liverwurst on pumpernickel, real deli mustard and all the fixings) . Fast and friendly service, Ingredients are real -- so the price is worth it. Extensive deli menu with beautiful desserts (but I managed to restrain myself this time). You can call ahead to place an order. It's wonderful to have this right here in Fairfax.
