I love Katz's as much as the next man -- actually, much more than the next man. But Sarge's has a special place in my heart and, in a perverse way, is my favorite deli. It's skeevy and seedy, uncelebrated and often less than busy. The pastrami isn't as good as Katz's, or even the Carnegie, but it's good, and the place has an atmosphere that is entirely its own. And, lest we forget, it's the only deli in town that is open 24 hours a day.
Enjoy coming here for a late night meal – Good solid consistent food, I enjoy the pastrami and corn beef with russian very much here
How can you beat 47 years family owned and family recipes? A NYC Staple...delicious. And thankful they deliver 24/7!! Incredible food, incredible service.
Rude manager lost a $300/month customer! – I've been eating at Sarge's for many years and have always loved the food...the cheese blintzes are amazing, excellent matzoh brie, authentic stuffed cabbage...some of the best deli food in the city. Regardless, after a recent experience with Lisa the manager I will not be returning. Her behavior was not only unprofessional, but bordering on libelous; I've never encountered a manager of any business so completely inept and abrasive.
Yummy in the TUMMY!! – This place helps me out all the time. From the morning time to when I'm walking home after drinking a lot. This place has the best food ever! The service is fast and friendly and I strongly would recommend this place if you want to try fresh, yummy food..Check this place out.
Anthony Bourdain should visit this place! – ThIs is by FAR THE BEST DELI FOR PASTRAMI IN NYC. I am an avid fan of anthony bourdain's show no reservations, watch it all the time, i am also a lover of killer pastrami, well he was on a typical adventure eating his favorite bone marrow. To thank this guy for the best marrow he has eaten, he told him that when he got back to NYC he was going to send him a pastrami sandwich (also his favorite nyc sandwich) from the 2nd ave deli. Wow that struck a bell, yummy! So i went to give it a try and wow i was totaly disapointed, fatty, greasy, soggy..... Sorry Anthony not the best in NYC. GO TO SARGE'S Mr BOURDAIN and have your palette pleased with the best lean delish pastrami you ever ate!
BTW if you are concerned about fat you can request extra lean and they will remove what little fat is there! WOW where can you get that done in a deli! and if you are not a pastrami fan try the sarges favorite delish brisket served over a potato pancake smothered with gravy! and a side of apple sauce, btw it comes with soup as a special for linch for around 10 bucks!
Enjoy this incredible deli, might see ya there i go there every time i am on the east side of manhattan!
Hands down, the best.. – I eat there at least 4 times a week. I can honestly say that i have enjoyed everything i have ever ordered from them from the turkey to meatloaf to the cornbeef (which is by far the best in the city in my book). Everytime I walk in their the people at the front desk are friendly, its a great atmosphere and great food. Good times overall!
Plea to Sarge's – I used to love this place, so it pains me to say that I saw mice running around three feet away from patrons the other night. The waiter was polite enough to offer me a free drink to get me to stay, but the drink had a baby fly floating around in it! Please clean up your act Sarge's, so I can keep on enjoying you. You used to be one of the best places in the neighborhood!
Best Deli in NYC Ever!! – If you're hungry for some great sandwhiches or deli meat, come to Sarges for it's unbelievale pastrami, and sugar free cheesecakes. So you see, I rate this place 5 stars, because their food reminds you of the good ol' days, the good grandma used to make.
Best First Rate Deli in NYC – I LOVE this restaurant. The food recipes originally came from the owners, "food Grandma used to make" and if you are looking for the BEST appetizing, smoked fish, pastrami, or burgers, shrimp or just an excellent hot dog - this is by far the BEST deli in NYC. Whether you want a solid breakfast, a power lunch, dinner at 4 AM after the clubs close, Sarges does what it does best since 1964. Same family owned and operated on it's fourth generation. Food is fantastic.
Sarges Deli had Mold in its Burger buns – Beware and stay away from this Deli.
I ordered a burger and had MOLD in the bread. If you dont want to end up in the hospital stay away at all costs from this place.
What chef sends out a burger with bread that is infected with mold. Im not talking about a spot or two but the entire bun...
