Ben's Kosher Delicatessen

Tried delivery to my midtown office today. Great corned beef, excellent pastrami, nice fries, killer pickles, and the "extra" touches were fantastic (the sodas were ice cold, they sent both mustard and Russian dressing for the sandwiches, lots of ketchup and napkins etc.) For what we got and the speed with which we got it the price was very reasonable too.

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.
