It's great to see on a menu all the foods you've heard of, but never tried. Liked it all. Salt content is there, but not overdone. Service was fair. Never seen cole slaw waiting on the table, nor had it so fresh and flavorful! Prices are moderate.

The poor management makes for the restaurant being understaffed, which leads to slow service, deficient cleaning of the premises, etc.

Kosher restaurant but open on Shabbat for those of us who need a Shabbat meal when traveling. I'm a vegetarian but loved it. My family raved about the prime rib, grilled pastrami, and steaks. My girls who are also vegetarian loved all the knishes (tried them all) the kasha and the salads.

Not the Deli it once was. Brisket was dry. Portions are so small. It is an art to make a sandwich appear large and stuffed with meat when it is only stuffed in the front and empty in the back.. Very Overpriced . Turkey was dry, fries were soggy and service could be improved. Soup overpriced and similar to dishwater.

Very good of one of the last Jewish delis around. I hope it doesn't close with the fast food paneras and subways pushing it out. The problem is it is so expensive now, $20 for a sandwich combo. It used to be $5.

Everything could have used less salt. Especially the Matzo Ball Soup and the Kasha Knish. And while we are on the knish, you can't heat a knish in a microwave. It simply ruins the texture of the dough. So this knish was fair at best. (Note: If you want an authentic and amazing kasha knish you need to go to... More

A traditional Jewish style deli, big portions of great deli. Lots of great choices, corned beef, pastrami, tongue, brisket and more. I enjoy the the round knishes, but some like them square. Soups are all great and expect a big bowl, definitely enough for two. Go hungry, leave full!

Ben's "ain't what it used to be". The food is more expensive, sandwiches are smaller, and the wait staff has rushed us several times. I remember how I used to look forward to going to their former location in Baldwin, NY. The only time I will go in the future is when we have out of town company.

I had a roast beef sandwich that was excellent on rye bread with tomato lettuce and kosher dressing. I also had potato salad that was excellent.

We went for breakfast. I missed my egg, bacon and cheese on a bagel, now that I don't live in this area anymore, so I had to have one. It was soooo good! My friend had chicken parm, excellent. Great NY spot!

Description
To some, delicatessen is something you put between two slices of bread. To me, it's a calling. I am committed to preserving the traditional cuisine of my Eastern European heritage, amidst all that's required to operate a modern restaurant. This is our pledge, from the Ben's family to you: Fresh food, freshly prepared and courteously served in a clean, well-maintained restaurant faithfully observing the Kosher dietary laws. I urge you to bring anything less to my personal attention by calling 1-888-344-BENS or filling out my "Ask Ronnie" form and submitting it with your questions or comments. Your complete satisfaction is our goal. Any concerns will receive my prompt attention. Ronnie Dragoon - Owner
