We were leaving Santa Ana and got lost, drove by Benjies, decided we were hungry and stopped. I'm so glad we did. First the pickles were delicious, the meat on the corned beef sandwich and the pastrami sandwiches were cut so thin that the meat melted in your mouth and so flavorful. We had them on the rye bread.

Went on St. Patrick's Day. The entrance was decorated with s rainbow of balloons and a leprechaun in a pot of gold. Had a prime rib French dip with French fries. Sandwich had a lot of tender meat and I added onions and cheese for $1. It was enough for two meals. Always great service and food!

My wife and I grew up in Tustin, remembering our early visits to the new Deli when it opened on 17th Street 4.5 decades ago. The ambiance is consistent. What was fine in the 70's is definitely dated today. The cocktail lounge was recently remodeled from Tiki Bar theme to Avenue K (which is a clean, if not distinctive). It... More

It is a true deli and people have been enjoying this place for 20 years or more. Portions are huge and food is good. Has a great catering menu. A very good value for your money and so much better than a coffee shop. They also serve alcohol.

Good quality corned beef and plenty of it in my rueben sandwich. My husband had the corned beef hash and eggs, my question is why we're the eggs such a bright yellow, almost neon. It is one one of the best delis in orange county. OK we have 3 total, but it is great. Will diffenitly be back.

This is a Jewish style deli restaurant. My wife and I had corned beef sandwiches with a cup of soup. The corned beef sandwich was very good. The meat was moist and they served an ample portion. The cabbage soup was very disappointing with very little sour flavor normally expected. The matzo ball soup was a little thin on flavor.... More
