    Beef brisket delivered on expectations. Didn't like the fries in the poutine (seemed a little dried out). Put mustard! Bonus: serves alcohol! :)

    Fries are good, Mac & cheese is too big for me, great potato salad. Breath taking beef brisket on an onion bun

    Highly recommend the beef brisket on a bun: pretty lean, tasty sauce, and deep fried onions on top added a nice crunch. Jewish pierogies delicious but not many come with it for the $9 charge.

    Everything about this place screams authentic. Make sure to get the hot sandwiches with extras. Latkes are a must and the smoked beef is that little bit of incredible. Do not walk past this place.

    Decided to go for the Smoked Turkey with a Caplanky Salad. What I got was a fistful of dry, unsmoked turkey between two pieces plain rye bread. The salad came in what looked like a small desert bowl.

    If the restaurant is crowded, just get your order to go. There's a nice little sitting area next door that would lend itself well to an afternoon dining spot.
