    This is the best Jewish Deli in the state. Their Rueben is amazing, and if you go during Passover they will make it on matzah. They also have the nicest staff! Worth many repeat visits.

    A wonderful kosher deli, grab a tray and slide through a variety of delicious comfort foods. Fresh baked bread and recommend the chicken noodle casserole.

    I've been eating here for over 50 years. Corned beef on rye, potato pancakes and the best cheesecake in the city!

    It's expensive but there's a reason. Darn good eats. Fresh baked breads to go with your sandwich. You have to try the reuben if you've never been here.

    A must when in town. Always great food. Have to walk there so you can walk off the huge portions. A pleasure every time.

    You cannot go wrong with peppered beef on rye with brown mustard. If you're sitting and eating, make sure to grab a potato pancake too.

    Pastromi is amazing along with pretty much everything else. This is a must stop if you are in Indy. They don't make places like this anymore.

    Corned beef, pastrami, Mac'n cheese. Incredible desserts, esp. Lemon cake. Pricey. Worthwhile every so often.

    This place is beyond expensive...I got a plain drink no side and it was $13.46 another $10 and I could had Ruth's Chris filet..I understand quality but there profits have to be 90%-110%

    I'd say the corned beef sandwiches would be a good place to start if you've never been there before

    The Ruben is delicious. But 13 dollars for a sandwich is not delicious.

    Might want to bring your own salt and pepper shakers; the grease on theirs makes them hard to grip. Bring Clorox wipes too- restrooms are not Kosher clean.
