Had the pleasure of visiting Saul’s many times, at least twice a year over three years and one is impressed with the everlasting quality and consistent menu offerings and service. Nothing quite like pastrami and their corned beef sandwiches on rye! I like the half...More

We ordered Saul’s platters last night. I love their potato salad, pickles, and desserts. Deli is good too but those stood out to me.

Huzzah!! Ok, so I have been trying to find the the best matzoh ball soup of all time for a few years now. I've tried Katz's, Sherman's, and Max's Opera Cafe - and so far Max's in Palo Alto is a favorite simply because I...More
