Ever since my first job, I have had a deep love of pastrami sandwiches. So I was eager to try one at Max's, I had heard that they are great. I ordered a hot pastrami on pumpernickle bread with russian dressing and coleslaw. The meat was not hot, the bread was falling apart, looks like they gave me the stalest and thinnest slice of bread they could find. Needless to say it was quite messy, so I had to go to the restroom to clean up. This was the straw that broke the camel's back. It was the most disgusting restroom I have ever been in. I will not go into graphic details, but I REALLY hope that their kitchen is not kept the same way. I was hoping I would find a new pastrami place, but I will not go back again....anyways..does anyone know where I can get a great hot pastrami sandwich?
