This Little Piggy Had Roast Beef
Posted by Tim on 06/03/2012
This place used to be amazing but unfortunately took a direct turn for the worst. This was a go to for late night food for my friends and I, but after tonight, no more. I ordered a that way and disco fries, only to be asked, "what are disco fries," and this from the place that introduced me to disco fries when I moved to the city from the south. Even after explaining what disco fries are (they are on the menu after all), I was brought fries covered in cheese whiz (wrong! and refused to fix them) and a cold, I repeat, COLD, roast beef sandwich covered in gravy that, though reminiscent of the great and magnificent this little piggy gravy from yesteryear, had clearly been diluted with Campbell's cream of mushroom soup. To be clear, this was not a delivery and the sandwich was COLD. I don't know if there is new management or what, but simply put, never again, there are just too many good places nearby to waste your money, time, and meal on this litle piggy.

I have to say the food was delicious. I had the "this way sandwich" the roast beef was tender, cheese was gooey goodness, the roll was slightly soggy but all together a great sandwich. The service is terrible. Took well over an hr to get my food. And they forgot an item. When I called to inform them, the guy on the phone was very unapologetic and said they forgot - he said could send them later but because it is so busy he told me it would probably take 2 hours!! If I wanted a refund, I had to do it myself through seamless because he was too busy to take care of this. Very good food with very poor service.

This place used to be really good. Good Sandwiches, nice size, super friendly and attentive staff. Over the last few months the portions have gotten smaller and not as tasty. I could probably live with that. But they changed their whole staffing. Now they have hip bar tender types that treat you like they don't care. I used to swing by on the way home, but lately I've passed on it because I don't want to deal with it. Tonight I tried ordering in, but the guy put me on hold while he chatted up some girl in the background. After about 15 minutes he decided to hang up on me. I called back to tell him how he... , but he decided to hang up on me in mid-sentence. I will go elsewhere from now on.

There is no denying the food here is great. The problem is you never know what 2 expect from the person answering the phone or delivery any more. I've been asked to, "hold on a sec" and the person just drops the phone, walks away for a few minutes. Delivery time can take up to an hour, when delivery takes so long you wind up with a luke warm soggy roll/hero. We had a delivery guy come back and ask for more money because the counter person screwed up the bill.

This place is roast beef heaven. Try the "that way". This is, by far, the best sandwich I have EVER had. I now order from them at least twice a week and will continue as long as my waistline allows.

The pastrami here is outstanding. It is as good as any other place in Manhattan (and that includes Katz's and the Second Avenue Deli). The roast beef is good, but the pastrami is something else. There is no place to sit. If you want to eat there, you have to stand at a counter.
