The service was fast and efficient. The pastrami was some of the best I have had, outside of New York. Will definitely be returning.

Stop here each time I come to visit family. Pastrami is a little salty. I get the roast beef sandwich and the onion rings. The ring are great and a huge serving! I look forward to eating here.
Husband picked up dinner of two of the biggest pastrami sandwiches I've ever seen! So fresh, tender, not fatty, juicy and sliced thin!!!!! Along with that a regular order of fresh thick cut fries is a brown lunch bag size! So so good!
They are famous for their pastrami sandwich. Fantastic!! Large portions of french fries & onion rings. The burgers are not up to the standard as heir other sandwiches. Only go there if you are HUNGRY and try the pastrami,
Best pastrami. Big serving, enough for 2 meals. Fast and friendly service. Freeway close. Best place for a sandwich in Lake Forest.
