Living in Virginia where "deli" is spelled "delly" we love visiting Ben's. Been to their locations in NY and Florida. Other deli's may have a better signature item, but Ben's is great or excellent on every item. Really enjoyed the knish on the last trip....More

The lean brisket came with a nice lean black hair, never going back, too expensive and that was disgusting.

Ben's is always a favorite when we're in the area. Consistently good deli, although a little overpriced.

Living in an area that doesn't offer a kosher deli, it was a treat visiting Ben's Delicatessen in Carle Place, NY. It was just what I hoped for and expected. Traditional kosher foods, excellent quality, great choices and very professional servers. Glad to know there...More

As far as I'm concerned Katz's Deli is the King of Pastrami but Ben's comes in second. You can't go wrong here, the service is great, the interior is spotless, I highly recommend Ben's.

Hi Billy, thanks for your review! We pride ourselves on having 6 distinct locations in the NY Metro area and one in Boca Raton, Florida. Which location have you been to? We'll let the staff know to keep up the good work!

It's great to see on a menu all the foods you've heard of, but never tried. Liked it all. Salt content is there, but not overdone. Service was fair. Never seen cole slaw waiting on the table, nor had it so fresh and flavorful! Prices...More

The poor management makes for the restaurant being understaffed, which leads to slow service, deficient cleaning of the premises, etc.

Not the Deli it once was. Brisket was dry. Portions are so small. It is an art to make a sandwich appear large and stuffed with meat when it is only stuffed in the front and empty in the back.. Very Overpriced . Turkey was...More

Thank you for your review. At Ben's we strive for excellent customer service and to have delicious food, but we need people like you to tell us when a change needs to be made. Rest assured, the problem will be addressed ASAP. Again, we apologize.

Very good of one of the last Jewish delis around. I hope it doesn't close with the fast food paneras and subways pushing it out. The problem is it is so expensive now, $20 for a sandwich combo. It used to be $5.

Description
To some, delicatessen is something you put between two slices of bread. To me, it's a calling. I am committed to preserving the traditional cuisine of my Eastern European heritage, amidst all that's required to operate a modern restaurant. This is our pledge, from the Ben's family to you: Fresh food, freshly prepared and courteously served in a clean, well-maintained restaurant faithfully observing the Kosher dietary laws. I urge you to bring anything less to my personal attention by calling 1-888-344-BENS or filling out my "Ask Ronnie" form and submitting it with your questions or comments. Your complete satisfaction is our goal. Any concerns will receive my prompt attention. Ronnie Dragoon - Owner
