My favorite place to get a deli sandwich in Chester! Most recently had corned beef on rye, it was to die for! Very New York authentic. Service is always friendly and fast, even when they are packed, which is most of the time!

For several years my wife and I have been stopping here when traveling in the area. Aside from the fact that it is slow, especially around lunch time, this is a very good place to stop. It has a pretty extensive menu of mostly sandwiches and salads. The staff is friendly. The location is very good for travelers on Interstate... More

Clean, good food, and great service. I love the Reuben sandwich and the baby back ribs are very good.

Their lunch menu is great - especially the Chicken Salad on a bagel. They serve old fashion Dr. Brown sodas and start you off with some delicious pickles. I'm a huge fan of their potato salad - we've never had a bad lunch

Best ribs & potato salad in town, only has ribs certain days & only at dinner time. Corned sandwiches are also good.

Good basic deli food, bread is a bit too much, special sauce e needs more oomph! Value is good people are nice, menu needs a refresh!

We eat there at least once every week. Best Rueben Sandwich and Ribs around. I would recommend it highly and think you would enjoy anything you eat there.

We have been here many times and have had good experiences. My only concern is on our last visit the walls, floor etc. were not clean. I hope it was because we went right after the lunch rush but the walls looked sticky and pretty nasty.
