Bill B.Bill B.: Hand sliced pastrami, put on rye bread, warm, fresh, and with a generous shmear of brown mustard. And of course, you've gotta have some sour pickles and a cream soda. It is a classic combo.

Tom K.Tom Klem: Great Pastrami on Rye. Ask for it moist. Plus ask for pickled tomatoes and sour pickles too. The well done hot dogs are to best in NYC.

Angelica B.Angelica Barbieri: Definitely a must go to place in NYC. The classic pastrami on rye bread was amazing. Although, you definitely need to split a sandwich with at least another person. It's huge!

Noah W.Noah Weiss: Want to kill your productivity post lunch with a meat-induced coma? Go for their famous Smoked Meat sandwich with cured brisket, mustard, and rye. It's a worthwhile and cheaper rival to Katz's.

Branzino B.Branzino Bandini: Berkshire pork belly, cured in-house with brown sugar and coriander, is smoked for six hours and divided into thick, salty slabs. Quebec cheddar and a crisp fried egg between slices of rye sourdough.

Aryan J.Aryan J: Great tasting meat and even better tasting rye bread. However, the small sandwiches quite overpriced. Prepare to be disappointed if you're looking for a big sandwich.
