Thank you Trip Advisor. We planned our holiday departure from friends and family so we could stop at Abe's. We were not disappointed and plan to return on our next cross-country trip. Delicious!

Abe's is a quintessential NYC deli-style restaurant, complete with all the basics like blintzes, matzo ball soup, chopped liver, brisket and tongue. We had the matzo ball soup and the minestrone. Both tasted home-made and the matzo balls were pretty good (not too heavy). My...More

I live in Virginia & finding a good New York pastrami sandwich with some fat on it is impossible! Please move to Northern Virginia! We're desperate! Family ate all kinds of sandwiches. Absolutely delicious! Lucky lucky Scrantonians!

Happened to me a couple of times saw person behind the counter handling food and money, without gloves and without hand washing. I will never go back and I love their corned beef.
