Everything here is just so good. I always do grilled pastrami on grilled caraway rye. A huge rice crispy bar on my day out the door.

Went to Cecil’s for pastrami and ended up with a loaf of pumpernickel bread, potato salad, chocolate chip cookies and a gallon of Bridgeman’s cherry nut ice cream. Everything was delicious! Talking to other customers was part of the experience!

Ahhh with prices, sorry. The prices were reasonable for the food we got, I wouldn't call the place low budget but we wouldn't hesitate to go back here again and again.
