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

I had been to Irving quite a number of times in the past and had not realized they had changed hands. In the mood for something different for lunch I had my office look at the menu and order. My pot roast was practically inedible, stringy and fatty at the same time and tough as could be. My coworker ordered... More

Decided to try Irving's since we were in the mood for Deli. Found Irving's via TA and noticed that the reviews were once poor, but were starting to improve. That said, I definitely wanted to keep the ball rolling with this review. I ordered the Three Tenders (Corned beef, pastrami, and beef tongue), Wife had the Ave B. (Beef brisket... More

My wife and I checked out Irving’s for an early lunch today. This is a nice looking Deli/Restaurant with plenty of tables that reminds you of NYC. We had read about their Hot Pastrami Sandwiches and wanted to try one, so that’s what we ordered. The Pastrami was moist & tender with good flavor, but could have been warmer. The... More

Came here in search of a good kasha knish. Stayed for the corned beef, too. Corned beef was flavorful but did not come with cole slaw. It is like getting and ice cream sundae without the syrup. Pickles were good. The knish was disappointing. The kasha was very dry. The dough was thin and dry too. I expected more for... More
