Description: To some, delicatessen is something you put between two slices of bread. To me, it's a calling. I am committed to preserving the traditional cuisine of my Eastern European heritage, amidst all that's required to operate a modern restaurant. This is our pledge, from the Ben's family to you: Fresh food, freshly prepared and courteously served in a clean, well-maintained restaurant faithfully observing the Kosher dietary laws. I urge you to bring anything less to my personal attention by calling 1-888-344-BENS or filling out my "Ask Ronnie" form and submitting it with your questions or comments. Your complete satisfaction is our goal. Any concerns will receive my prompt attention. - Ronnie Dragoon - Owner.

“Bens Kosher Deli is a Great Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

I often go to Bens kosher deli for business lunch. It is always excellent. The pastrami sandwich on rye is favorite. They really have great food and fast service. Very good for affordable quick lunch. This is an authentic Kosher deli and recommend visitors to experience. Highly recommended

“Good food, decent prices.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

Good selection of deli meats - pastrami and corned beef were both very good. The potato pancake was huge - and a little denser than I prefer. The pickles and cole slaw they bring are a nice touch, and quite good. The wait staff was efficient and pleasant if not exactly friendly. We had the bad luck to be there at the same time as a busload of school kids, which made it incredibly loud and hectic - but I'm guessing it's not the norm. I'll try it again if I'm in the area - and you should too.

“Not as good as expected.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

It was very average not what it was hyped up to be. Thought it would be more hamisha. The sandwiches were not the usual massive portions like in other New York deli's. service was good though, restaurant was clean.

“Classic NYC deli with bland corned beef.”

Ben's has a classic NYC deli feel to it. Convenient to Times Square . The corned beef was bland and the pastrami was ok

“Loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

As former New Yorkers who can't get good deli food out West, we ate at Ben's on a Saturday nite in March.
Place was packed. Food was outstanding. Great Matzoh Ball soup, great Pastrami sandwiches.
And Dr. Browns Cream Soda. Waiters very busy, but also very efficient and not unfriendly.
Loved every minute. Would return in a heartbeat.
