    It goes without saying; it can get busy. Expect lines inside and out during lunch hours – bring a buddy to grab a table once inside.

    First don't lose your ticket! Next order yourself a pastrami sandwich ($19.75) on rye (+$1.50 reuben)and do ask for their homemade mustard. The sandwich is huge so can be shared between small eaters.

    O pior lugar pra ir. Cheio, funcionários mal educados, do tipo leão de chácara. Um calor insuportável lá dentro e as filas pra pedir estavam uma bagunça. O sanduíche pode ser bom, mas não vale.

    Okay, this is a famous place because of movies and the owner meeting celebrities.. The food is he bomb. Get the hard pastrami meat on rye with mustard and cheese; it's the bomb! A bit overpriced...

    1888年創業。白紙チケットをひとり1枚もらい、カウンターでオーダーし、セルフで席につき、退店時にチケットで会計(現金のみ)。2人で行ったとしたら、1人がサンドイッチをオーダー、もう1人がサイド&ドリンクをオーダーして合流すると良いかも。パストラミサンド以外にも多くのメニューがあり、ハーフサンドイッチスープなんてのも。NY歴史スポットを訪れたという価値はあれど、食事処としてリピートしたいかは微妙

    One of the best places for a lunch! You can split their enormous pastrami sandwich! It is well worth the $20 price tag! The pickles are fabulous!

    Despite the wacky taking the ticket stuff, I really loved the pastrami sandwich. It was huge and tasted amazing. These guys have been doing this since the 40's! It's no wonder they are doing it right.

    Very popular with tourists. The pastrami sandwich is really amazing — and I don't even like meat very much. You may want to share it, since it's huge. Of course, there's always a line on weekends.

    Maybe a bit clichè, but the pastrami on rye is just to die for. Service isn't flawless, but the food makes up for it. We picked up breakfast here for a Central Park morning picknick, recommended!
