    4th Street on 19th Street, you say? Works well for us, but bring a friend (or three) to split a mouth-watering Reuben or Pastrami Sandwich. Get dessert too—a slice of cake fed our entire staff! Read more

    Best breakfast sandwiches. Get a bacon egg and cheese on a bagel. The portions of the other food could feed a family for a week, Theres literally, at least, five pounds of meat on their sandwiches.

    Huge portions! Great food. Breakfast is so so but if you go, get the pankcakes. Go for lunch or dinner! Best Reuben of my life

    Share your plates. They are huge! The corn beef is excellent. Good philly steak. Great spot.

    The portions are ENORMOUS! Save some coin and dignity and split any brunch order. You'll leave feeling less bloated and with more cash in pocket.

    Pastrami Reuben with latkes is the way to go, but bring a friend and split a sandwich. They're enormous.

    Note to self: always about portion sizes in a new restaurant. And, for heaven's sake, DO NOT order soup and a sandwich here! You will regret it.
