    Born on the East coast and miss the delicatessens from there? This is as close and genuine as they come. latkes, sandwiches piled with tasty corned beef or pastrami and the bakery = deli heaven.

    I love this place, the food is amazing, but the prices have gotten a bit out of hand. A tuna sandwich shouldn't be $17.95.

    Unfortunately probably the closest to a New York Deli/Restaurant in SD. Had the matzo ball soup, latkes, and a Ruben sandwich. I really wish San Diego had a legit spot like Katz's or Zingerman's.

    I had the half order ceasar salad and added chicken. The half order was huge! The portions here are huge. Everything is shareable. A bunch of delicious options, too many to choose from.

    High quality Jewish deli restaurant. Hard to find chopped chicken liver. Breakfast special every day. A real bargain. Wonderful fresh soups.

    If you're fond of Black Forest cakes, it's a must try here! Though it's a bit high on the cream but tastes authentic

    Ridiculously expensive. Who charges 13.95 for a grilled cheese? 9.95 for a cup of soup? 19 bucks for a corned beef sandwich ?? Go to Denny's & hit the bakery at DZ

    This tip will not do this place justice. The menu has everything you could ever ask for from a Jewish deli. Pastrami on rye with potato salad...my go to. The bakery on the way out is amazing. Just go!
