Excellent food. Traditional deli atmosphere. Loved it! Be prepared to take a number and wait a little but the line moves quickly.

Bought sandwiches here for a take-out lunch. Good value and good range. All that we bought was very tasty. We were there around lunchtime when some things had gone but still a good choice. Also does eat-in hot and cold food.
