Eisenberg's Sandwich Shop
Posted by NYU Student on 07/28/2007
Never in my two years in New York City have I had to hung up on the person taking the order because she was so rude, incompetent, and outright disrespectful. Hopefully other employees of this establishment are not like her. And, hopefully the food, value, and atmosphere are good. But, all it takes to lose my business is poor service.

This is a great place to go for lunch. I work on 25th and 7th and every Friday I walk all the way down to Eisenberg's on 5th for lunch with a friend. The pastrami sandwiches are great, the fried fish with macaroni and cheese (Friday's special) is also great. Staff is very friendly and prompt. I have heard the egg sandwiches are absolutely amazing, although I have not tried one myself (yet). Prices are reasonable especially considering the area and how tasy the food is.

My coworker and friend Amy and I love Eisenbergs..we order every morning and message eachother during the weekend saying things like "breakfast wasn't the same today" or "Can't wait for Eiseys Monday!" I have switched up my regular order a few times and everything i have tried is delicious. Among my faves are: the homefries, the frenchtoast, the toast in general, the OJ!!, the bacon& the meatloaf. The service is the best too, nothing but down to earth people who put a smile on your face on the phone or at the shop. I highly recommend it! Forever Faithful to Eiseys, Ange and Amy <3

Stopped by today for a late breakfast with my New York Times. Places like this are disappearing from the city. Ten years ago you could find counters like this all over Manhattan. One of the joys of moving to the big city for me has always been bellying up to the counter between lawyers, construction workers, and cops... just like in the movies. Ignore the modern dress and it could be any time in New York's past. 1950, 1940, heck the 1930's. The foods great, service fantastick, and the price... Fuggedaboutit.

My wife and I had brunch at Eisenberg's a couple of weekends ago and had a disappointing meal. The service was poor (slow both mentally and physically) and the food was even worse. I had a turkey club sandwich that was wet and soggy and my wife had an omlette that was way overcooked. Her bagel was also one of those frozen grocery-store type bagels which should be outlawed in New York City. I get the whole throw-back old-school coffee shop feeling, but they should back it up with service and food to match. Sorry, Eisenberg's, but we won't be back.

Disregard the title as it is an inside joke between a friend and I =) I love Eisenbergs. I get french toast with bananas(and WHIPPED CREAM)every single morning. Sometimes when i'm tired of my regular ill choose a different thing on the menu every day for a week or two..and everything ive tried is yummy. I order with my coworker who loves EB's as well. They are just the best!

I've ordered mainly variations of the grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch at Eisenbergs, but I was truly blown away when I decided to order the rice pudding one day. I was trying to pull through my 3 o'clock slump at 4pm and decided to have it as a snack. Although they put the gooey goodness in an unattractive coffee cup, nothing can depreciate the sweet, rich taste it left in my mouth and the involuntary smile it put on my face. Why do diners bother to claim the "Best Coffee In the World" title? Great coffee's got nothing on Eisenberg's rice pudding. I've even been to "Rice to Riches", which didn't win me over either. And to think I wasn't a fan of rice pudding, I was a fool!
