Wanted to get out for a sandwich at lunch, and looked for local places. There was La Penguina, a place I started going to 25+ years ago, I think. Anyway - ordered the Reuben for take out, and it was ready when I got there. For $6.50, that was a great sandwich... lots of corned beef, a generous amount of kraut, and grilled perfectly. Also remembered to order a side of potato salad - all made local and fresh.

Also - I think that the same ladies that worked there back in the day are still there. Sweethearts!

Good sandwiches and sides. Lasagna on Thursdays is fantastic. Staff is very friendly and it's always a good experience.

Well, I found La Penguina to be an ok deli, but thought it was a bit pricey for the amount of food you get. Corned beef was of good quality though. It is far better than Matti's Deli on Monroe. That place is WAY overpriced, and WAY underportioned.

Great classic sandwiches. This is more of a "get and go" place. The bread is really fresh. Great mix of meats and plenty of them. The locals like this place. It's a treat to go.

Great sandwiches with really fresh ingredients and very friendly speedy service, however there are only a few tables so you may have to take out.
