There was hardly any cheese on the greek salad. The Italian salad dressing was common.. Certainly I have tasted much finer dressings over the years. Actually, the waitress expected me to mix up my own oil and vinegar with lemon dressing. My husband returned his sandwich, the brisket was dry. The potato pancake was nothing special and he returned that also. He also found the pastrami very fatty. His much recommended onion rings were practically inedible. We were crammed in so tight with the table next to us that the waitress had to serve them by reaching over us throughout the meal if you can believe that! Yet, the deli was packed. Next time, we will study the recommendations on these pages a little more closely.

The sandwiches at this place are enormous and absolutely delicious. Our waitress was a blast. NY character through and through, and pretty much told us what to eat. She kept the beer coming (the Bronx Ale is great). I had a pastrami and corned beef with swiss, slaw, and russian dressing. Out of this world good. We also had the cheescake and carrot cake, both of which were great. That being said, the prices are ungodly. For seven people, we ended up paying $180 with tax and tipand that was for lunch! Come to think of it, four of us split two sandwiches, and two of the sandwiches were children's sandwiches. Ouch!!! On the other hand, we at at about 2 p.m. on a Monday (we were seated immediately), and we were so stuffed that we skipped dinner entirely. Plus, there was not a single complaint. On balance, it was worth it. We would definitely go back.

Yes, the sandwiches are huge, but they are way over priced.. your average diner in NYC makes a sandwich about 75% of the size for less than half the price.. I would gladly pay $10-$13 for most of them, but over $20 is just a rip. Also, such huge sandwiches are hard to eat. I ate here after being stranded on the subway and jumping out to catch a cab home. I was starving and it was around 1am. My waitress was very nice tho and constantly brought me more coke for my coke float, which I appreciated. The place wasn't packed, but they were trying to cram everyone in the "front" section. I could tell that several of the other servers had some "character" to them tho.. and it seemed like a post-theatre or touristy indulgence... I had the Tuna Melt named for some baseball player.. I was happy (and shocked) to actually find a place in Manhattan that doesn't put celery in the tuna! I wish for the price tho, that they'd give you even just a small side of fries.. or had an option for half sandwich and a side. If I ever go back, the Tiger Woods (turkey, gravy and fries) is what I'll be having, and cheesecake!

I had a tiger woods sandwich which was the best sandwich i've ever had in my life. The service was excellent food came out within 5 mins of ordering. The food was over priced and you pretty much sat on top of one another but I have to say I would still go back there any day the food made up for everything!

There's got to be a better deli in Manhattan. This was a never again experience. The waitress was surly and inattentive. The sandwiches are huge, but they should be for the ~$20 price!

Forget the sandwiches and go right for the cheescake at this theater district mainstay (you won't have room if you don't). The portions are enormous, by all means share. the meat in your sandwich migh be a bit dry and underseasoned. But, again, you go there for the CHEESECAKE, I always get blueberry but you can take your pick from an excellent variety. It's the best cheesecake in the world.
