    O sanduiche de pastrami é imperdivel. Pode pegar no balcão ou esperar por uma mesa. Mas vá até lá.

    I felt this place is overhyped. Confusing ticket system and quite expensive. Go to Mighty Quinn's a few blocks uptown instead.

    You must try the reuben with pastrami but that's no secret. If you don't love fatty meat (the positive way) ask for an extra bread to reduce the overwhelming ratio of pastrami and bread.

    The best pastrami sandwich in NYC. I prefer the pastrami but if it's your first time, you might want to order the half and half with corned beef to find your preference. Both are amazing.

    Pedir el tradicional sándwich de pastrami no te arrepentirás mas de un siglo sirviendo este platillo judio restaurante de numerosas locaciones de películas

    The pastrami sandwich was absolutely amazing; best I've ever had. The only downfall with this place is that it's incredibly overpriced, but at least they give you large portions!

    Enormous amounts of meat between two small slices of bread. Doesn't look fancy, but the turkey sandwich is delicious and can feed two people if you aren't very hungry.

    Without a question pastrami with cheese sandwich. But why $30? :/

    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.

    Half corned beef, half pastrami. I liked pastrami more

    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.

    Rewan Parti · July 26
  • Peter C.

    Incredibly tasty pastrami and a decent portion size too.

    Peter Clements · July 21
  • Daniela D.

    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.

    Daniela Dantas · July 18
  • Christian F.

    Pastrami and Corned Beef Sandwich

  • Hey P.

    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...
