Love their precooked chicken cutlets —they make for a quick chicken parmigiana. Great place to get fresh cold cuts.

Always reliable, always good for typical deli- pastrami, corned beef, great potato salad, Cole slaw. Lots of choices & friendly staff. Very decent portions. Kids welcome although not much room for a stroller. Definitely helpful people though!
