You're always greeted at the table with a bowl of delicious sliced pickles. Quickly followed by your sandwich filled with fresh quality sliced meats. The service is friendly and the prices are pretty fair. Don't leave without trying a dessert!

We have been going to this deli for years. It never disappoints. It is truly a New York style deli with great sandwiches, ribs and old fashioned sodas. Even the kids in our family always want to go to the deli. It is great.

I love the Sailor Sandwich and the fact that a bowl of pickles is automatically brought to the table when you first sit down. The serving of fries is generous. Chicken salad and burgers are also great. It's usually quiet enough to have a conversation...More

My favorite place to get a deli sandwich in Chester! Most recently had corned beef on rye, it was to die for! Very New York authentic. Service is always friendly and fast, even when they are packed, which is most of the time!
