Ben’s offers delicious deli sandwiches as their specialty but don’t overlook the other offerings. We do love a good corned beef sandwich which is a mile high and a potato knish, but we also ordered the fruited noodle pudding and it was delicious. The soups are yummy and they offer several specials each day.

High up on my list of things that make me happy is a good pastrami samdwich, and despite its shortfalls, I’ve alws enjoyed one at Ben’s. Yesterday’s so-called pastrami at Ben’s was an abomination. It was sort of an afterthought of what to do with left over corned beef. Sort of like over cooked corned beef, rubbed with spices and thrown back in the oven for an hour. I know my pastrami and that was about a 3 on the 1-10 pastrami scale. Sad that it’s becoming harder and harder to get decent pastrami. I also resent their stuffing the sandwich at the cut edge leaving 1/3 of the bread empty. I think that Ben’s has been infected with industrial chain restaurant disease. No resemblance to the delis of yesterday.

Very clean, wonderful and attentive staff, and delicious food. We all loved the coleslaw and pickles they give you before you order. They did not slim down on the corned beef sandwich, it was overstuffed and tasted very good. The sliders tasted good with the fried onions and horseradish dressing. The chicken soup came with a large matza ball. Overall the service was quick and the food was well liked by all.
