    Authentic 1950s-designed Jewish deli that originally opened in Boyle Heights in 1931. Moved to its current location in 1953.

    Matzo ball soup is all I had and it was delicious. Loved the ambience and the service as well.

    So many things to choose from in the bakery, and they're all delicious! They'll even let you sample a little if you're having trouble deciding. Great for late night breakfast cravings.

    #SmokedTurkey on rye-the best! Been going here for years. Ask for pickles and the sweet-hot mustard.

    I'm gonna go ahead and be a hater and say that it's really not that amazing. Nate n Al's or the Norm's on La Cienega are much better options

    The pastrami is excellent; it's thick cut, with the perfect amount of saltiness, and it's not too fatty. The rye bread is the stuff dreams are made of; moist and bursting with flavor. Read more

    All the history and local color is fun, but this is basically like a nursing home cafeteria in terms of both atmosphere and food quality
