    Wow there is just something great about going to a place from the 1920s that hasn't been touched, sit up at a counter and have one of the best pastrami Rubens ever with a lime Ricky to wash it down.

    Great sandwiches. Try one of the favorites. I had the one with pastrami, corned beef, swiss cheese and cole slaw. Simply delicious. Great service. The breakfast sandwiches were good, too.

    Fantastic comforting matzah ball soup with delicious broth,big chunks of chicken, carrot and celery. Pair with a pastrami reuben and a classic NYC egg cream or rickey.

    This place is like walking in to some sort of time warp. Sit at the bar, order an egg creme and imagine doing the exact same thing in this establishment nearly eighty years ago.

    If you ever doubt the greatness of this city, or your place in it: sit at the counter of Eisenberg's and devour a Reuben. All better.

    Here's a picture of an almost finished Reuben. Couldn't help myself because it (and everything else) is that good.

    Bagel and lox was fantastic. Not sure about egg cream. A bit like a carbonated milk shake. Definitely better than the carbonated milk shake I made in my parents soda stream when I was a kid 😉

    A classic, down and dirty at the counter is the way to go. You will leave smelling like Eisenberg’s

    $10 for their pastrami sandwich served hot on rye with a pickle, help yourself mustard. Thinly-sliced, fattier and drier than Katz's but also cheaper, can sit at bar and can finish it!

    We tried the original pastrami reuben sandwich and it was fantastic! I really liked the old decoration.

    If you're a veggie - breakfast til 11 or limited lunch items like veggie burger, egg salad over greens and veggie soup on tue, thu, fri. Still awesome but no salad greens section

    A popular spot for lunch but single diners or pairs should generally be able to get seated without a wait. More importantly though...the food was awesome...everything good NYC diner food should be!

    The staff here is super nice. If you're getting takeout, ordering over the phone or on Seamless is the best option, especially during lunchtime. Otherwise, you'll be waiting in a really crowded area!

    The roast beef sandwich was really good..not too big and the roast beef was nice and rare. I would def get the fries next time! The size of the sandwich was very manageable. Highly recommend.

    The pastrami reuben is far cheaper and waaay better than some of the more famous sandwich shops around - and the chopped liver w/turkey is crazy good too. Lovely, old-school diner atmosphere.

    Since it was my first time here, I ordered conservatively and got a cheeseburger (with bacon) and fries. Although the wait was long because I decided to go at 12pm on a weekday, the food was fantastic

    Nice staff and mind blowing Reuben! Take out is quick but the narrow space makes it hard to wait

    Easy to love. Better than a diner experience. Something more to it than that. Breakfast is better than lunch. Service leaves a lot to be desired. But still worth it for basic and inexpensive classics.

    Classic Jewish deli offerings in a classic diner setting. Lime Rickey is a must. I got the Jake which was decent but next time I'll go for the standard pastrami reuben.

    Check out retro restaurant, Eisenberg's. Breakfast is served all day, but we recommend the tuna melt due to its size. Read more

    No nonsense classic Jewish deli - Pastrami Sandwiches, Tuna Melts, Egg Creams & Lime Rickeys. And pickles, of course.

    One of those very classic NYC delis that don't exist anymore. BUT THIS ONE DOES. Egg creams, all sandwiches are great. Expect 10-15 mins for takeout, nowhere as bad as it seems if you're not starving.

    Classic New York experience. Delicious, delightful, and nostalgic. Leaves you feeling full of glee and grease. Get a patty melt and an egg cream.

    Grab a sandwich or an egg and cheese to go, and sit and check out all the photos of celeb customers along the wall. Spike Lee! Bono! Goldblum! Everybody loves a little old-school cholesterol.

    Egg Cream! Contains no eggs-just milk, seltzer, chocolate sauce. If you want a real one, sit yourself down at the counter and order up. This shop's been serving up New York classics since 1929.

    The Reuben! Buttery toast squashes down thinly sliced, plentiful corned beef, dolled up with sauerkraut and a sweet touch of Russian dressing. With each bite, the melted Swiss pulls like taffy. Read more

    Step back in time and chow down a sandwich. One to share with a side of latka is a perfect amount of food.

    A classic New York joint. Eat pastrami solo at the bar. Order quickly and pay at the door when you're finished.

    The egg salad is creamy and clean-tasting, and only slightly salty. Order it on rye, and strike a blow for heirloom eating. Read more

    This is one of the last real deli's left in Midtown. Tuna Melts, Reuben's - you name it, all served perfectly toasted with a pickle on the side, the way it should be.

    You know how you can buy bottles of Cristal at a club? I'd rather buy bottles of Eisenberg's Lime Rickey. A true symbol of status and wealth.

    It really shows its age. But if you can get past the dust and grime of the place, the reuben is fairly good.
