I bought 3 lbs of pastrami to take back to PA for my dad's birthday. It was well worth the price and everyone loved it.

I visited Ben's Best after a flight to JFK. The stewardess recommended it. I told her I was looking for a real NY Jewish Deli. she hit the nail on the head. The second I walked in, I told my wife, this was old school..right out of my childhood; I found out later from Jay (the owner) that it's been... More
I had a very good old fashioned Jewish Brisket sandwich. Portions were big. Tasty. Service was poor. Food was very good. Prices are high
Hi Peter - I am sorry to hear about the service. I am glad to hear about the sandwich though, look forward to having you back. More
Reading reviews here, one would anticipate finding a deli approaching Manhattan's iconic Katz's. With prices the same or higher than Katz's, we were prepared for a clone. Unfortunately, the similarity stopped with the prices. Quality less-quantity less. Not that anything was objectionable, although the pastrami was cold twice. I guess that's the way they do it, unfortunately lacking the buttery,... More
Hi - Thanks for dining with us. We've been preparing pastrami the same way for over 70 years so it surprises me to read this review. We aim to think our food is rich in quality and quantity. If there was an issue, please let us know as we are more than happy to ensure you have a pleasurable experience at... More
An institution (Rego Park), Ben’s continues to serve up amazingly fresh and kosher foods. My (non-Jewish) family of four enjoyed matzo soup, chicken soup, [huge] pastrami sandwiches, a [also huge] hamburger, kniche-wich sandwiches, fresh coleslaw, and half-sour pickles. We also enjoyed the hospitality of Ray—a man who tells amazing stories! Highly recommend.
This place is fantastic!!, the food quality is excellent and portions so big. I did order the chicken breast sandwich and it was amazing, so fresh and full of flavor. The price is around $15-$20 but is worthy compared to the food quality. For sure I will return!!
I eat here every couple of months. Back to my roots. I usually take out. This time I ate lunch in. The waitress was friendly and prompt. The place was almost full. The food speaks for itself. Large fresh sandwiches. Chopped liver is the best. Pastrami on rye to die for. I could not finish so I brought half home... More
Welcome to amazing sandwiches but for a steep price. Most are around $20 but look at the size!! There is no easy way to wrap your hands around the sandwiches but you will figure it out. If you want an amazing deli sandwich but do not want to trek into Manhattan, wait at least an hour for a table and... More
Forget the lower east side! Kosher (and good!) exists in Queens (Fleisch). Brisket, pastrami, corn beef (oh my) and chopped liver with the proper proportion of "chicken fat" (cholesterol?) made this a really good meal. Prices are reasonable. Nice touch...spoke to the owner...such a nice person.
