    May be the best in Queens, after pastrami king on Queens Blvd closed. Kinda pricey, but worth it if you want good Kosher food...

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

    Daniel Barthels · March 30
  • Peter M.

    This is a wonderful place to go when in the mood for a pastrami on rye with a smear on the side if u know what I mean. And it ain't chicken liver either

    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.

    The pot pie was kinda inedible...but our server was very polite and accommodating about it and offered to let us choose something else. We always get great service here!

    Frances M. - Let us make it up to you. The next time you stop by ask for Jay and receive free French fries and a complimentary soup

    "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?

    Girl at register had no clue about the foursquare deal. Sigh. And I was stoked about it too. What a waste! Gonna drown my sorrows in carbs!
