    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!

    Get in line and get your pastrami sandwich. A must stop in New York and ask how the business model works...or doesn't work. A big tourist stop too so don't be in a hurry.
