    Sandwiches here are pricy but very good and very large. I wish they sliced the meat thicker though.

    It's really hard to leave here hungry! ❤ The Pastrami Burger, the Mushroom Barley Soup and the Corned Beef sandwich which is huge and delicious. The service is nothing stellar, but it's ok.

    The matzo-ball soup is pretty good, but there are no pieces of chicken, no carrots, and only a small amount of noodles.

    Best corned beef and pastrami in NYC. Open 24/7 which is incredible. They never close which is even better.

    Quite possibly my favorite deli in NY. I grew up on their pastrami and corned beef on Sundays. Can't go wrong with anything from Sarges.

    The pastrami (order it "fatty") is amazing, as is the matzo ball soup. Watch out for dirty forks and plates. Service was barely adequate, though stereotypical for a NY deli.

    Pastrami on par with Katz's, with far fewer tourists. Sit-down is not as family-brunch-oriented as nearby 2nd Ave Deli, as Sarge's is more about Murray Hill's young adults - 24 hrs and huge portions.

    Just as good, if not better than the other big name delis in NYC. Go for lunch for more bang for your buck

    The corned beef can't measure up. It finds the meaning of its life not in a sandwich, but in the corned beef hash-slivers of salty meat fried crisp that overpower the smidgens of potato. Read more

    They don't mess around at Sarge's. HUGE portions. Bowl sized coffee cups. Huge lunch plates (nothing junior about the junior ruben). The $30 Monster sandwich is...a monster.

    Try the Souper Soup. "Sitting in the heady chicken broth, which demands no salt, are a hearty beef kreplach, noodles and a gigantic matzoh ball that straddles the line between floater and sinker." Read more
