Old style deli. Excellent pastrami and corned beef. Definitely worth a stop if in the area. Will be going back.

I had hot pastrami and cheese when I last went to Hobby's. The meat is very good with no extra fat. Sandwiches could be a little bigger with the prices they charge.

This place is a pseudo throwback to the days when delicatessens were everywhere. Now there are few, an this one's as good as any other. I had a tongue on rye. It's pickled on the premises and tastes homemade. Also had the requisite CelRay soda,...More

This place is a Newark institution and it's no secret why! The food is delish, the owners are wonderful, and the atmosphere is perfect. It's even frequented by a Supreme Court Justice!

How can you go wrong with a historical Jewish deli in downtown Newark NJ. Corned beef, pastrami, you name it piled high on rye and delicious. Oh, my and the pickles!
