I'm used to Kosher delis with huge menus that are normally so busy you have to wait for a table. This is a small Kosher deli that does gave a good selection of food but to me it's just average. I had falafel that was...More

Since this was ranked high I chose to take my daughter and her roommates out to lunch. The sandwich was very greasy and we expected a more delicious meal. It was just ok.

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!

On Washington Ave, this diner is always popular. The service is not always too fast, but the food is tasty. The coffee cups could be bigger, but I do prefer a mug and it was refilled regularly. The omelettes and potato pancakes are especially good.

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.

I had the corned beef hash which was not from a can. The coffee was okay. I would definitely go back to try another dish.

Phenomenal Deli, great food and service. The pastrami Reuben sandwich is the best I've ever had, anywhere. They gladly welcomed our party of 20 without hesitation. Awesome all around. I hope to stop in Scranton again.

Old school delay with great service and good deli foods. We had a Rueben, smoked turkey and roasted chicken sandwiches. Waitress was awesome and meats were good quality. Not the best deli I've been to with the "New York" style approach but it's a friendly...More

I stopped her for lunch and had a nice bagel with lox. It's not Zaro's (NYC) but still, very good. Hamantaschen was doughy and heavy, and rugelach was dry. Concentrate on the main courses - not the dessert.
