Went today with my wife. We shared a super size Pastrami/Corned Beef sandwich. Very resonable price considering size and the pastrami and the corned beef were both outstanding. We also got all you can eat cole slaw and fantastic service. Could not have asked for more a real great deli experience in NYC.

The kosher meat sandwiches are delicious as are the potato pancakes(but a bit greasy).

A well-meaning soul had our Holiday party catered by Ben's. Oy vey! Quantity trumped quality, as Ben's delivered oodles of tasteless sticky "pigs" in a blanket (pork it wasn't, since B's is kosher) and mounds of gloppy mini-knishes. Other fare was below school cafeteria level. If you're looking for pounds and pounds of starchy, greasy food... go ahead!

You can tell this is not a tourist trap right away. There's no attitude and the prices are very reasonable. I have long despaired of ever finding a decent matzo ball soup in a restaurant. Ben's is very good, with a huge, light matzo ball, flavorful broth and noodles that aren't overcooked. Sandwiches are big and delicious and not ridiculously overpriced. I would go back any day for more soup!

We gave this place a shot ouf of desperation, since the neighborhood is pretty devoid of quality food, and I was sorely disappointed. Their 'full-service bar' has only the dregs of a grandfather's liquor cabinet. The chicken had a seasoning like you wouldn't believe, and the brisquet was dry. However, the potato pancake was great, so if you are near Penn Station and have a hankering for a potato pancake, go here. Otherwise, skip it.

Ate here a while back, forgot to post but am doing so now. People like to go to The Carnegie (ugg), Katz's or 2nd Avenue Deli, but you can't bet Ben's for service, price & quality of food, plus you don't get abused for the privilege. Actually kosher, as is 2nd Avenue, but not as expensive, off the beaten path a bit, but worth it!

Finding a Good, Kosher Deli in the Metro Area is becoming harder to find these days. Ben's is a real find. I have been there several times and prefer the weekend when the Garment Center is practically empty and you can dine in a relaxed atmoshere. If only Ben's would come to New Jersey . . . so in my and my wife's case . . . until it happens . . . it's off to Ben's in Manhattan! PS . . . Try the Pastrami or the Tongue and the Cole Slaw is homemade and is GREAT!
