Extremely Rude Do Not Visit

I joined citysearch solely to post this review. I sell medical supplies, and on a daily basis I would purchase cookies from the deli (not the bakery next door, but the deli). My order would vary between one dozen to three dozen cookies depending on where I was traveling, but always chocolate chip. One day I ordered two dozen chocolate chip cookies (over the phone) and when I arrived they had prepared two dozen oatmea... view more

Never had a bad meal here -- my family stops in weekly. Great for kids. Try omlettes, sandwiches, salads are not to be beat! Don't leave without trying a slice of cheescake. Great neighborhood deli -- with politicos known to stop by.

The Best Jewish Deli in Philly

I am a New Yorker by birth and upbringing-until I ate at Famous 4th Street, I had not experienced the real deal in Philadelphia. Best bagels and lox, and best corned beef, pastrami, etc. anywhere in the region outside of New York.\r \r Gigantic sandwiches-nobody could eat a whole one in one sitting! From pickles to rugelach a wonderful eating experience-the service is great too!

Best pastrami reuben I have ever had!

I dropped by at lunch the other day with no idea of what I was about to experience. I ordered their pastrami reuben. It was the most incredible sandwich I have ever had. I have had a lot of reubens and none of them come close to this sandwich. The pastrami practically melts in your mouth. The size of the sandwich is enormous. The bread is delicious and they serve it at a perfect temperature. The only thing I h... view more

Good Place to try out

Love this little Gem in Queen Village. Good Food and worth every dollar. Friendly Staff too. Sometimes our Governer has breakfast there too.

Huge portions of disgusting food!

I have never heard anything good about this place with the old or new owners, but a friend wanted to try it, so I thought I should be open-minded.\r \r The food at this place is disgusting. I had a ham & cheese scramble for breakfast with a side of bacon. The ham & cheese were cold-cuts(!?!), and the eggs were oily. I could only eat a third before I started feeling sick. The bacon should have been advertised as a ... view more

If you are hungry this is THE place

My wife and I have been here twice and once you get a table the service is fast and pleasant. The amount of meat on a sandwich, in our case turkey, defies belief! The shrimp salad platter is also something to write home about with a large quantity of nice sized shrimp. We could not eat everything either time we were here. Its the only place I have ever taken food home from.

extra grease on the side

Frankly, I was completely disgusted by the food served here. The meat was mostly fatty and my reuben consisted of about 1 lb meat, a few strings of sauerkraut, lots of dressing and a slice of swiss on what they claimed to be rye bread, but looked like wonderbread. Big Macs and Whoppers look like mini-sandwich snacks compared to what is served here. For anyone who is health conscientious, I would not recommend this r... view more

Owner is a tool

The owner Russ is a tool, he is always opening and closing businesses. If you've ever worked for him, make sure you get your last week's pay in product because he will stiff you on the ""other"" pay usually handed in an envelope. If you know what I mean.

You'll leave FAT and even happier!!

Do NOT go here unless you are prepared to eat 2.5 times your weight in delicious, delicious food. Everything is piled mile high. Get the french toast - you will not be unhappy. I've had this super thick and filling challah bread french toast and it's FABULOUS everytime! Slightly crispy outside, thick dense, tasteful challah, perfectly (not overly) sweet... absolutely amazing. Order it - it'll be the best french ... view more
