Eisenberg's Sandwich Shop

Mediocre food. Rundown 'old NY' charm. No one is going there b/c the food is tasty or a good deal. Sign outside the door says it all, "Eisenberg's either you get it or you don't"

I have no idea what some of these people are taking about when they write a review on here but I've been here 3 times now. Tuna Salad with so much Mayo I threw it out after getting home. Second time Corned Beef that was a sandwich of Fat. That also went in the garbage. Third time I got a Brisket. It was stringy, fatty, and had been microwaved. I actually brought it back showed them the sandwich and people at the counter couldn't believe what they called "Food". I ate some of the Fries so I gave them my sandwich back got my money for that and will never go back.

The ladies in some earlier posts sound over the moon about the egg salad - and quite frankly they should be. It is exquisite. I ate it with such gusto it ended up on the sleeves of my trench coat - and I am not ashamed to say I nearly ate it off! Smooth, creamy and full of egg flavor, if you are a lady (or man) who craves luscious egg salad look no further. I had an ES sandwich and a diet coke, and left feeling like...well...a queen!

I sat at the counter and ordered a cheeseburger deluxe. The fries were amazing..big hot steak fries cooked to perfection. The burger was burned on the outside, fine on the inside. But the burnt taste made it bad. The coleslaw and pickles were great. Sit at the counter for faster service.

This NY classic is not for everyone, and not everything there is equally great, but you can't beat the incredibly delicious BLTs (in my case, on white toast with mayo), the onion rings (huge portion, greasy and delicious!) or the chocolate egg creams (heavenly!). If you are a high-maintenance Gucci girl, you might not like it here. If you love retro, vintage and a laid-back vibe, check it out.

i decided to get lunch there sincce i work in the area and read the mostly positive reviews on this site. The ambiance is cute because it's very old school. I ordered the "Turkey Club" for $8.50. And all i got was turkey on toast with mayo. This is NOT a club sandwich!! Where's the tomatoes? lettuce? bacon maybe? It was a turkey sandwich , certainly not a club. With tax it was $9.25 - totally overpriced for something my child could've made at home!

C'mon! You cannot beat Eisenberg's! It is an old New York staple. They make simple, cheap sandwiches. Stop in, grab a spot at the counter and have some eggs, maybe some coffee, or perhaps an egg cream and leave with money in your wallet. The place itself has tons of old world charm. The whole place is turning brown because of years of hot griddles, steaming coffee pots and probably at one point, people smoking cigarettes by the truck loads. I always get an egg sandwich and coffee, served by a friendly staff member who's usually doing five things at once. I sent some friends here from New Zealand and they said it was the perfect start to their NYC trip. Recommended.
