This is a very good kosher style deli, but a bit over priced. A plain corned beef on rye is $16.95. A children’s dinner is $11.99 for a huge hotdog, or several other selections, fries drink and black and white cookie The service is very...More

I have been going here for years and the food is consistently excellent. I prefer to order out. Table service can be slow and inattentive. This is a classic eating place where one goes to feast, as opposed to a sit-down place for a night...More

The combination corned beef and pastrami sandwich was huge and very tasty. I had it topped w/ coleslaw and dressing w/ Swiss cheese. I could only eat half, had to save the rest for later.

They give you a lot but they are not cheap. Food is ok and I would go back if someone suggested it. Not much choice on kinds of bagels. Service is just ok.

The food was delicious. I enjoyed one of their specialty sandwiches, corned beef, Swiss, coleslaw and russian dressing. My wife had the Big Dog. The restaurant is a 36 mile round trip from our home but it’s worth the trip to Livingston, New Jersey. Yes...More
