Stay away! This is not a deli. It's not much of restaurant either. We started off with a chicken soup. It was so salty and cold that we returned it. The waitress replaced it with matzoh ball soup. The balls were clearly from a mix. My grandma would be horrified if she ate those. We returned that soup too. Next, to be "safe" we ordered a burger and fries. Sorry to say, it was cold and nothing special. Not much better than McD's. We also ordered a garden salad - wilted and no vegetables - only some nasty peppers. We also had kasha varnishkas, which should have been a house speciaity - if you call yourself a deli. The kasha was bland, not a mushroom in site, NO ONIONS - noodles and plain buckwheat.

We happened to bump into an older couple from the old country on our way out. They were walking out after having sat down a few minutes earlier b/c the waitress would not substitute lean corned beef with x-lean on the menu! They even offered to pay the difference.

All in all this place is horrible. Never going again.

Where were Joan and Ed?
