Heidi's Brooklyn DeliAdd to mybook
Used to eat at the Heidi's in the Denver Post building all the time up until the new owners bought the place. Then the food, atmosphere, and employees went down hill REAL FAST. Just 3 days ago, my friend, along with her husband and grandbaby, as well as myself ate there. We all had something different, but my friend was the one that became SEVERLY sick about 4 hours after eating there. Her husband was also ill, and I had developed a case of a very upset stomach and had to keep running ...view moreto the bathroom every 30 minutes. Thank god I didn't eat all my ""sandwich"". The only one that didn't get sick was the grandbaby (thank god). Her lunch was supposed to be a grill cheese sandwich. The cheese was not even melted on her sandwich.\r
DO NOT EAT HERE!view less
I wish I could give it NO STARTS. One star is generous.
The folks behind Heidi's have obviously never been to Brooklyn. This place wouldn't last one day in NY. No respectable deli in Brooklyn has pre-cut, pre-weighed meat. It's not even real meat it's the nasty slimy stuff. I ordered chili too........sorry - I was gagging. So as I was saying, I ordered chili - and it was as if they opened a can of pork and beans and threw some taco meat in. Then they brag about their pickles and pot...view moreato salad - ugh. The potato salad is embarrassing. I am actually offended they say this is like Brooklyn food. Don't go there - EVER.view less
You can actually be arrested in Brooklyn for serving food this bad. I wouldn't suggest anyone actually eat Heidi's bagels except to laugh at how bad they are. These are absolutely the worst bagels I've ever had in my life.
As other people have mentioned this is the worst run restaurant I have ever seen.
Oh my GOD!!!! I usually don't write reviews about sandwich shops, do to the fact they are sandwhich shops...however after the ""trip"" I was taken on at this paticular one, i felt it necessary for me to do so, for the health of the general public it is my responsibility. As I entered the store, I was not greated at all as the two younger employees covered in who knows what sat on the cutting board table and had a full on conversation. I walked down to see the menu, in doing this no...view moreticed the soup pans that looked as if the soup had been in there for at least three weeks, completely disgusting. As I placed my order, the younger lady, went right to work on making my sandwich....oh but forgetting to either wash her hands or wear gloves. I recieved my food then asked for a rootbeer float, confused, the second employee asked ME how to make it. Laughing more out of sheere amazement told him how...after putting the icecream in, he handed me the cup and told me that the rootbeer was over there pointing towards the fountain by the door. Excuse me but what am i paying for then????? I will NEVER go back into this place do to the amazingly terrible all around experience.view lessProvided by Citysearch
Heidi knows about as much about a Brooklyn Deli as I do about rocket science. I do notice that there are NO stores anywhere in NY. Probably a wise desicion, as nothing authentic about this store is NY, especially the menu. My suggestion to those of you ""cuirious"" about what real New Yorkers eat, and want to sample as close to the ""real thing"" as possible, is to stay away from any franchise that uses ""NY, Brooklyn, ""etc in its name, as it's most likely just a marketing ploy ( as i...view moren this case ), to lure in the ""unknowing public"". Hint..NO genuine NY DELI serves "" Hoagies"", they serve ""Hero's"". The food itself is a vague resemblance to their heritage claim, and I grew up in an Italian / Irish neighborhood, and belive me when I tell you, THAT AIN'T NO SAUSAGE & PEPPERS HERO""!view lessProvided by Citysearch
What a horrible restarant. They have good meats but the staff has no idea how to make them. This place needs a manager to step in and straighten this place out. I've never seen such a poorly run restaurant. You can order the same sandwich 5 times and never get it made the same way. \r
Avoid the bagels at all costs, they are horrible. \r
The plus is the great locaton.
I'm a New York native and let me tell you- There's nothing Brooklyn, Manhattan, heck even upstate New York about this place. Any menu that includes avacado CANNOT be considered Brooklyn or even East coast. Heidi's is exactly like every other deli or sandwich place out here. Atlanta Bread and Panera anyone? Might as well just go there! \r
The food is fine, I do enjoy it, but there's nothing stand out about the place. In a place where you have A LOT of transplants, if you're going t...view moreo have a name like Heidi's Brooklyn Deli, than I believe you might want to do it justice. It's almost enough to never go back there. It's an insult really. \r
That being said, the food is fine, the atmosphere is good for grabbing a quick bite to eat and the staff is adequate. There's nothing special about it though, so I don't recommend going in expecting anything. It's in the same line of McDonald's and Burger King. You can eat there, probably even enjoy it, but really? It's no big deal. You can go anywhere and get the same thing.view less
