                The recipe and the taste never changed *HOWEVER* , the size portions has gotten somehow smaller and the price of everything went up as well.

                          I wonder if the employees get a free lunch during their shifts. That would make dealing with thousands of confused tourists much more worth it.

                            There are so many other Jewish delis around, and some that are actually kosher. Try Noah’s Ark in Teaneck NJ( they used to have one on the Lower East Side also)

                                  Dirty, filthy place. Staff are ignorant and some black goon threatens you when you walk in over a stupid ticket. The owner is some Jewish shyster who lies through his teeth about the food they serve. Overpriced yid hole!

                                                    So basically jews stole Eastern European recipes and traditions then brought it to New York because European countries finally kicked them out. Once they arrive they remarket and brand the food as their own....

                                                        $23 a sandwich is so overpriced, no sandwich is that good, this guy can take those sandwiches and stuff them right up his ass. Besides second avenue deli destroys him.
