Editorial Review – Theater District deli serving American food since 1914; breakfast dishes, sandwiches, dinner entrees and more available for dine-in and catering.
The worst diner experience ever – Tourists. Locals. I must warn you. stay away from this horrible restaurant. New York is not like this! The place was completely empty when I entered. The food was ridiculously overpriced. 12 dollars for a "bacon cheeseburger." 19 dollars for a "t-bone with eggs." I was told that there was a 4 dollar "share food" charge. A 6 dollar minimum. My service was bad. My waiter was rude. The food was not good. The gratuity was added in automatically. Smart move, geniuses! I certainly would not have given you a tip. People of the internet: go somewhere else to consume food!!! Anywhere! These people don't even deserve to have customers!!!!!!!!!!
Horrible experience – Horridly rude service--avoid this place at all costs. My boyfriend and I stopped and I wasn't hungry. We ordered coffee, and then he ordered a bacon cheeseburger (for $12, ridiculous even for New York) The waiter then announced he was going to charge us a $4 sharing charge. When I said I wasn't eating, he told me that if he saw me take any food from my boyfriend's plate, he would charge us! He was so rude, we cancelled our order and asked for the check-- which he then said would be $6 since they had a per person minimum. Then when we paid the bill, the tip had already been added--a maneuver that I found sneaky and underhanded. The last time I checked, tip wasn't obligatory, and in this case, the waiter certainly didn't deserve it. I will never return to this place, nor would I ever recommend it.
It's okay, not bad, not great! – Mom and I went in here to grab a bite while waiting to check in for hotel. Waiters were pretty snobby but we were seated quickly and got drinks quickly. After us another couple was seated, I'm not sure what the waiter said to them but the man told him that they are from here and didn't need to be treated that way. HMM?? Anyway, we ordered Chicken soup w/ Matzoh Ball and an eggsalad sandwich. For dessert we had a piece of cheesecake w/ strawberries. Everything was to our liking. Look at your bill when you receive it, on ours 15% gratuity had already been added. I would go to other deli's first if I had a choice, but would also return here if nothing else was around.
Don't ask for a 2nd cup of coffee – for breakfast unless you want a snotty look!! Rude and abrupt throughout the service. Over priced, mediocre, at best, food. Will never return.
Great !! – Best place for a quick pre/post theather meal. Great cornedbeef and pastrami. Great cheese cake and coffee. Hey, your one block from times square. A bargain in this area. Big menu filled with NY deli delights. How about some tounge and eggs, kinishes, matza ball soup. Been there twice to make this review. Will go again. Great service!
