I was really in the mood for this once-every-year treat. They say they use Boar's Head, but that can't be true. This was the most nauseating sandwich I've ever been served. All gristle and fat; tough as leather. I literally couldn't eat more than a few bites. I will never go back to this place.

I first found this deli on menupages when looking to make a catering order that couldn't be made anywhere else within the alotted time and budget. It was an item not even on their menu and they were able to assemble it and get it to our office on time. I've had a few situations when we need catering in a hurry do to last minute arrangements, and they are always willing to oblige. I always suggest them to people, especially when they are making large orders. Fast, friendly, affordable and fresh. Had their fruit salad today for the first time and each fruit was so ripe and delicious! Never actually been to their facility, but I cannot imagine having a disappointing experience with them--ever! By far the most pleasant ordering experiences I've had in NYC.

Ordered for delivery, waited for 2 hours. When we called to check on our order they claimed that they canceled the order because they couldn't find where we were...does that make any sense? I was dumbfounded. Then they hung up. No sorry.

Not a fancy deli, but they have a really great selection of sandwiches, entrees and other things on their menu, it's really easy to find something you want. The made-to-order salad is a serious deal here, any 5 items are included in the price of the salad ($5.95) including typically pricier toppings like sun-dried tomatoes, marinated artichokes and breaded chicken. My salads are usually about $6 for one that would cost closer to $10 at the other salad/sandwich places and taste fresh and great. Their chips combo is a good deal too, and the service is really friendly and quick. A solid choice for lunch.

I ordered the BBQ Chicken Cutlet sandwich, which came with a surprise ingredient: russian dressing. I had to throw the sandwich away because I hate russian dressing. Why can't they just list that on the menu? I also ordered onion rings, which were limp and soggy. Delivery took about 50 mins.

This is by far the best place to eat at. The food is absolutely delicious and the price just can't be beat. I work on the West Side now and have not been able to find a place like this over here. I am sometimes encouraged to take the train over there just to eat there. The service is fast and they recognize you there. They give a lot of food when you order. Don't pay at the back register. The lady there charges differently for the same food everytime you go there. The fron register is the way to go. They are very nice and polite and don't charge extra for sour cream like the other lady does.
