I hate the place because of the obnoxiousmanagement (this is NOT about actualservice)Their refusal to take credit cards is unbelievableconsidering the volume of their businessand the large number of out of town tourists.They could at least have an ATM machineon the premises.Last time I ate there our party of 3 adults and2 kids ordered 65 bucks worth of food. We werehit with a so called sharing charge because myfriend and I were sharing a triple decker. My friendDID ORDER a bowl of matzoh bowl soup but thatwasnt good enough for them. He did not ordera sandwich or entree so he broke the rules. Iam still burning about this 2-3 years later.I dont think the food is as good as when LeoSteiner was alive. Huge sandwiches but sizeis more noticeable than quality.Mark GrossmanKingly@GTE.Net
