on my recent trip to the city i decided to send one of these 'world famous' cheesecakes to my sister in ga. i based my decision on these reviews. i have to say i left feeling taken advantage of. roxy does not ship anymore - but the not-very-nice man at the front door said not to worry they could pack it ready to ship at the fed-ex around the corner. we agreed and thanked him. he dissapeared and a man gave me a ticket to pay . i went to the desk behind the glass to pay the 62.00 bill. yep, 62.00 for a cheesecake. i didn't fuss, as the point was to get this great cheesecake for my sister. we got to fed-ex, the nice lady sadly looked at us and said she couldn't ship it like it was. after much discussion, we just decided to skip sending it altogether. here's the capper.......... we opened the package that night to have a piece and share with the hotel staff and the cheesecake was not good at all. freezerburnt and tasteless. i guess it was best i didn't waste the money to ship it.

Our first girls trip to NY, six of us, and we wanted an authentic Deli. Roxy was advertised and so we went. We were seated upstairs, so the atmosphere was okay, but our service was excellent, fast and helpful. Of course these sandwiches are huge and we wanted dessert too, so they explained ordering six items, six of us, no sharing charge. Two sandwiches, two sides and two cheesecakes were plenty. The pistrami was excellent and we were glad he suggested it. The most satisfying dinner we had in NY. Thanks and we'll be back!

We love the Roxy Deli. The sandwiches are fabulous and the desserts are excellent. Our kids love the Black and White cookies, and our Children's Hospital in Pttsburgh purchases their Black and White cookies directly from the Roxy. The atmosphere is rushed and crowded, but it is part of its ambience. Every trip we take to NYC, we make time to eat at the Roxy, even if it is only to share a slice of cheesecake.

We went to Roxy's based upon a friends heeding. I found the food to be excellent and the Reuben was great. I thougt the price was a little high, The wait staff did not care when I questioned the about the difference in the price between the Corned Beef and the Reuben. The pickles and potato salad were grocery store quality. It was a nice experience but I will go somewhere else next time.

I ordered lox and eggs. The eggs tasted like the last thing on the grill before the eggs. Accompanying fruit was in the process of spoiling. Grapes were discolored and melon was mushy. Never again!

Roxy, located in Time Square, is available for one thing....the cheesecake. $8.95 for the traditional and $9.95 for the specialty. It is the absolute best in the world. Granted they have huge salads and sandwhiches which are very tasty, but this delicatessen should be reserved for one thing and one thing alone: Cheesecake after seeing a great show on Broadway!

You go to Roxy's for the cheesecake. Not for the atmosphere (it's crowded and noisy), and not for the service (it's as fast as it can be, but these folks have a tiny kitchen, a huge crowd, and a lot of stairs to climb). Yes, you can get other things (the sandwiches are huge), but why would you? One giant piece of cheesecake is a whole meal. You go to Roxy's because, whatever you may have heard about other "Famous Cheesecakes," this one tops them all. Even if cheesecake normally sinks like a bowling ball into your stomach, as it does in mine, even if you're extremely lactose intollerant, as I am (the pills can't control it because it's so severe a case), you will LOVE this cheesecake! Ignore all other reviews. These people didn't order the cheesecake, or they went expecting a fancy place. This is New York, Times Square--not a penthouse on Park. Go there after the show, and get the cheesecake. When was the last time you experienced the world's best of anything?
