It is a traditional 24 hour open restaurant and deli in town. We loved our pastrami reuben sandwich. Rock band Guns n Roses started their career in a bar inside the restaurant, so there are lots of pictures of them on the walls.

If you have a taste for deli then you must try Canter's. Years ago there was a place in North Miami called Rascal House. A large restaurant with deli and a huge selection of traditional foods, open all serving three meals. Rascal House closed a...More

Friendly service; reliable matzoh ball soup and juicy hot corned beef on crunchy rye bread with classic slaw. Popular late night spot after a night out.

When I moved to LA, everyone told us that Canter's was THE Jewish deli to go to. Obviously I thought it would be amazing and that wasn't the case. The patty melt was dry, pickles were salt cured not sour, and the baked goods bland....More
