Liebman's is one of the true original delis still around from the time in the 50's through the 70's when kosher delis were a common entity. The quality and taste of the cornbeef on ry, the kreplach soup, etc. Cozy and original design speaks to...More

I was born and raised in the Bronx but didn't travel much out of my enclave. I was surprised to learn there's a strong Jewish community here. I'm not Jewish, by the way. I loved to see the bagel shops. This restaurant, Liebman, was worth...More

Been going to Liebman's Deli for years to enjoy the Corned Beef and Pastrami. I am never dissatisfied. Last time add the Kasha Varnishkes which were made just right. Do not usually order the large entrees as too much food. Advise to go as there...More

As an avid Liebman's devotee, this is a hard review to write, but this deli is slipping! Maybe it is over-loaded with outgoing orders, online orders, I don't know, but eating in the deli has been a disappointment 3 times within the past month. Today...More

After trying a number of pastrami places in 3 boroughs, we decided that, aside from Ben's Best in Rego Park, this place has the best pastrami and food in general, but sadly no kreplach. But, yay, it means we can go on a regular basis...More

Whether you live in New York City, or only visit occasionally, a trip to Liebman's Kosher Deli in the Bronx is well worth your time. Though the spinach knishes and the stuffed cabbage are among the best deli food items I've EVER consumed, the menu...More

Not far from casino you could definitely do both, but not next door either. My guess is five to ten minutes from the casino. It is closer to henry hudson parkway than deegan. U r going to have to google for directions... More
