Eisenberg's Sandwich Shop

I am absolutely floored - floored! - at the attitude in the negative reviews below, Eisenberg's is absolutely fabulous. It is a relic from another era, and like the Automat, when it is gone, we will see a slice of the city disappear. This place is strictly OLD school. You don't call Esienbergs for "subsitutions" or "no mayo". Of course that confuses them! They have made it the same way for years!! If you want it another way, then please order elsewhere. You should be anyway, because this is "old standards" not Burger King where you can have it your way. I am sure they are flexible if you have a request, but respect limits. I recommend Tuna sandwiches, Chicken Noodle soup, and the burgers. To the reviewer who has the audacity to suggest that the older staff should be in "old folks homes" I say old age and wisdom always overcomes youth and stupidity. Have some respect! It's just lunch!

And the food is really terrific. I have been eating here for years and the food is really good and the people are always exceptionally nice. My favs include anything breakfast, tuna, and burgers that taste like they came right off the barbeque. Love, love, love.

Just saw some of the reviews below, and felt compelled to say that I love Eisenberg's, order delivery from them all the time, and the service is great, as well as the food. The owner and staff are nice people, and they handle an awful lot of orders every day and rarely have I seen them make a mistake...and when they do, they are quick to correct it. And as noted below, it is a slice of old-school New York that we should all be thankful for. Eat there and be happy.

I order from Eisenberg's frequently and love the food! I have to say their customer service is rather non-existent especially when ordering over the phone. The people are down right condescending and disrespectful. Hire new staff that can comprehend and understand callers with a level of respect and send the older employees (that could easily have been with this establishment since it opened in 1929) to a retirement home.

But now it's often hard to get through, and the woman on the phone seems confused by a simple order. And if I ask for no pickles, I usually get two pickles! I've been ordering from Eisenberg's for years, and while their tuna sandwiches are still excellent, I'm getting discouraged.

I order from Eisenberg's about once a week. They are always full of personality and very kind on the phone. The food is old school deli and it is very good. Delivery is fast and efficient. It is definitely a throwback. I would hate to see it go as it is a slice of old New York that is rarely found these days.

First of all, I cannot believe the person who wrote the review below this one (nyustudent - and obviously not an English Major!) is telling the whole story. I've been ordering from Eisenberg's for years and everyone is so nice and funny when I call. The place is a throwback to what NY used to be and I can't say enough about the people there - not to mention the BEST Pastrami, Burgers and Chopped Liver I've ever had. Look at all the other reviews. How could anyone not love Eisenberg's?!
