We stopped in to Toojays because we haven't been there in years. It started out ok, a little slow but that was good. We ordered our meals and had water with them. The meals came out on the same tray as a neighboring table, which...More

It seems as though a great deli has slipped. Summertime should not be a time for the restaurant to get careless. Our meal was far from perfect. My strawberry chicken salad was soggy. The chicken amounted to 3 small fingernail sized pieces. It was not...More

Too-Jays is located on the back side of rebuilding mall and cannot be seen from the main streets. However they still put out a quality product. Though we live in the area we have not tried it, as they open at 8 in the morning...More

You will not find a better Rachel or Reuben...ANYWHERE!!! Service is excellent. Matzo soup, potato pancakes and blitzes are to die for.

This place is still the same. The food is OK and the service is adequate but they never try to improve. The prices are fair, the facility is fine but it is not a special place. It is a good fall back place to meet...More

Matzo ball soup like your grandmother used to make, and some dessert selections that you should try, especially the carrot cake. I often opt for the "Try Too" choices with half a sandwich and a cup of soup. I like their tuna fish, which is...More
