The takeout counter staff are great, the cashiers at Arties must have trained at the DMV, the wait staff do not believe in refills and the how is it that isn;t a cook in the place who can make a decent omlette? If you love screaming kids, navigating strollers and amnisiac waiters (Oh that's right you did order a glass of milk, sorry about that). However Arties does make great hot & cold sandwiches. Their brisket is lean and tasty. So do yourself a favor order takeout & endure the cashier sullen transaction or phone in an order, just be prepared to be put on hold eventually they remember you are there and pick up the phone.

Ate at Artie's the other night.. we sat at the tables that are near the street. Service was very good. I had the combo pastrami/corned beef sandwich. Others say the pastrami is fatty.. true, but that's what gives it the flavor. The sandwich was piled high with meat and very tasty. The kasha knish is very big and quite good, although they nuke 'em, as most places unfortunately do. The missus had corned beef & eggs. There was meat in about 1/2 of the omelet and the other side was just eggs. We complained to the waiter, who got themanager. he apologized, took the plate back and had the dish re-done. This time, the beef was plentiful and very good. All in all, a NY experience.

The hot pastrami on rye is to die for! The fries are good too! Service at the take out counter is really really fast!

Potato pancakes = Soggy and greasy. Chocolate Egg Creams = Too Sweet and not enough seltzer. Tuna Melts = A huge mess. Grilled Cheese = Greasy pile of bread.

The Roast Beef, Pastrami, and Turkey on rye is to die for. Arties makes great food. The knishes are awesome too. The one drawback is it's pretty expensive. $13 for a sandwich is a bit over-the-top, although you are admittedly getting about 384 lbs of meat.

The serviceware was not clean. The dining area is simply sloppy from the floors to the tables to the staff uniforms. The food is good, a bit greasy, and the service is usually average or subpar unless you get one of the old timers.

You can't deny some of the great deli fare at Arties, but it is the atmosphere (particularly at lunchtime) that leaves a lot to be desired. The place is consistently full of very young kids; loud, spoiled kids at that, who can easily ruin ones dining experience with constant screaming an squealing. I guess it comes with the territory in this neighborhood, but a separate Nannyland would be a welcome addition to this restaurant.
