Food was decent. The service was lack luster. A customer that was there ate all of their food and then refused to pay saying it wasn't any good. Maybe that is true, but I felt bad for the restaurant that seems like they are trying to make improvements I personally believe you shouldn't eat over half and then complain! The... More

Ok....so, Irving's had a couple of months there were it was questionable. However, they now seem to be hitting their stride. I was there recently for a business lunch and I was happy to see that the pastrami was back up to standards. The pickles and coleslaw were fresh and tasty. The potato knish was hot and the mustard spicy...the... More

If you are in the area and looking for a quick sandwich with quality meat, this is the place to go! I highly recommend the potato salad as a side dish. The cheesecake is awesome too!

I visited this restaurant around two years ago and it was really good. Went back on 7/14/2016 and The cornbeef taste like processed meat. Horrible. Bragged about the restaurant to a friend and he did not like the pastrami

Went here with a few friends, looking for a classic east coast deli. The sandwiches are great! A bit overpriced considering I can get one twice the size at Jason's Deli and tastes just as good. They bring out coleslaw and dill pickles, and both are good. I recommend the hot pastrami or the hot corned beef.

I've eaten here a few times. Pastrami and brisket very fatty on every occasion. Sandwiches not that big for the price. Service is not great even when place is not crowded. This place seems to live on reputation of others.

Irving's is under new ownership and I predict it won't last too long. I can live with the fact that they don't know the difference between a half sour and a full sour pickle, but place is cutting corners. Ordered a piled high sandwich $16 for exactly 2 inch of meat on a 2 inch slice of bread. Gave thus... More

Their Corned Beef and Pastrami sandwiches continue to be very good. Two positives... Their sandwiches come in both regular and large size.. They now serve Cole slaw and pickles with the sandwiches. Hopefully your experiences will be as good as mine have *** consistently*** been over the past six months.

Pretty good deli. Prices are real good. Food is good deli. Service is excellent. Matzo ball soup, corned beef, turkey Ruben, hot dog, etc., all very good. We live closer to another deli, but it is much more expensive. So, when we are up for the 10 minute drive (passing the other place), we will go to Irving's. Definitely recommend... More
