    We have been trying to go for years and finally went. It did not disappoint what a great place for dinner. The pastrami sandwich was one of the best one I have had. Also surprised on how wonderful the cocktails were!

    This was our third experience at J’s Deli. The first (breakfast) and second (lunch) were both wonderful. But we were very displeased last night; the BB hamburger with onion rings was horrible, The meat and onions seemed frozen and microwaved, and all three who ordered this were not at all happy. We raved about this place to our friends and felt foolish for having done so.
    J's DeliResponded on April 4, 2024
    We are sorry that your burgers were not to you liking. However, the food that we serve is fresh and prepared daily. All of our menu items are made to order. And let me clarify clearly, WE DO NOT HAVE OR HAVE EVER HAD A MICROWAVE IN OUR KITCHEN! We are not accustomed to getting negative feedback on our burgers which are one of our top sellers.

    So good we came back twice in one day. That’s never happened before! Went for breakfast had the Lox and Latkes and the Heuvos Rancheros. Friendly staff, food was great . Came back at lunch time and picked up the Rueben pastrami and Tuna melt sandwiches to take home. All the sides were fresh and the soups were great additions. The Rueben was perhaps one of the best sandwiches I’ve ever had. Just love this place.

    We make frequent visits to J’s, but being seniors, 84 & 90, the servings are too heavy for us. We truly wish we could find more restaurants that offer us smaller portions as we most times end up throwing our leftovers out even after we take them home. Pacifica seems to be the only one to offer the option which we appreciate tremendously…..we know we’re not the only ones to complain & the only alternative is to share which doesn’t always appeal to us.

    Had a light dinner, open face turkey & gravy and three salads for 4 people. The side onion rings came out soggy. Good tomato soup. Salads were large and enjoyed by others. The bus boy was very attentive with great personality and conversation. Overall it was fine. The lady’s cosmopolitan drink did not have much triple sec and too much line. She didn’t like it. Otherwise a decent meal.

    Clean, friendly place when not busy. We had an early lunch here and enjoyed it. The food is tasty, but not very healthy. I had a type of Ruben sandwich that had a LOT of fat in the pastrami, more than any other Ruben I have ever had. My sister had a turkey club and that was better, in terms of not as fatty. Fries are very tasty and came out fresh and hot. The staff is friendly. I have also been here when it is busy and it is not as pleasant...which might be true everywhere, but I noticed it. I will come again and be more careful about my order.

    It was great to make a reservation! We had the Reubeniski, the best. Pickles were really good! As much as I love Sherman’s deli, I don’t love the wait. We did buy some cookies, rye brea, tuna salad and chicken salad on the way out. Very good.
