    Oddly enough, all of the food I ate here was bland. Even the milkshake wasn't very flavorful.

    Explained to server and manager that drinks hadn't come in 45 mins and tables coming in after us already got the same drinks, not apologetic at all, cancelled meals and left, very disappointing!

    Worst. Service. Ever. After we ordered, at least three other tables came in, ordered and got their drinks and meals, including some of the items we ordered, before we got anything. No tip for you!!!!

    Do not order to go. They wrap the sandwiches in foil without a paper lining and they become incredibly soggy by the time you get home.

    Came here via 4aq recommendations. Matzo soup was different, but enjoyed it. Then moved on to the Brooklyn and kniswich. Kniswich was way outside the box, and was pleasantly surprised. great place!
