    A tad pricey for chicken noodle soup with very little chicken and not too many more noodles for that matter.

    Turkey, brisket, pastrami, cornbeef and roast beef are all made right there and the brisket, cornbeef and pastrami are kept hot throughout the day. Great Kosher Deli.

    "How can you serve an awesome pastrami sandwhich without cheese! Screw Kosher!!!! "What a clueless comment. Why would you go to a kosher place if you want meat and cheese together?
