Skip It – We ordered (from the not-very-friendly owner) stuffed cabbage, (so sweet it was inedible), chicken soup (average), knockwurst ruben, (hard bread, otherwise average), chili cheeseburger, (not hot, otherwise average), and chocolate chocolate cake (bland--and rarely do I meet a chocolate cake I wouldn't order again!) Not horrible, but definitely nothing worth returning for.
Great Deli Food! – I love the pastrami sandwiches. They have good service and a friendly staff. I have eaten there several times and have never been disappointed.
Decent diner food – Very average diner food--not too bad, but nothing spectacular. The curly fries were pretty good, as were the cookies fromt he bakery counter.
Round-the-clock deli with landmark emblem on University boasts traditional plates on a vibrant corner in Hillcrest. – In Short
Since the early 80s, this beloved corner store has sliced lean pork, baked Cinnamon Apples, and served up its hot pastrami sandwiches to patrons from early morning to midnight. Space is copious and cheery, matching the deli's array of food and happy servers. Traditional Jewish dishes are City Delicatessen's staples, but all-American classics are just as hearty and well prepared.
