Ben's Worst Deli – I made the mistake of eating at Ben's one night during a family get-together. The waitress who served us was nasty, unattentive and disheveled throughout the evening (she almost resembled the middle-aged hostess who had a more than snooty attitude towards us). I ordered a turkey burger that was very dry and tasteless complete with a soggy bun and too many extra large potato fries. One family member asked for pastrami on a roll but got it on rye instead (waitress shot us a nasty look when we told her the order was wrong); another ordered a roast that was overdone and tasted like rubber. The only thing that seemed appetizing were the pickles, rolls, and assortment of cookies as a dessert.
When we asked the hostess if she could wrap the leftover cookies and meals for us (since no other waitresses were around), she nastily replied to us that it wasn't her job. I'm not an expert in kosher deli nor am I a fan, but it was one of the worst places to eat and I expected Ben's to be a very decent place with decent food. I was wrong.
