Came here on a weekday at 2pm, line-up was outside. It was a narrow tight space, but everyone came here with a mission-having the smoked meat sandwich! The service was straight forward: a glass of water on the table, taking the order then you wait....More

A local deli with the most delicious smoked meat sandwiches! The place has the fantastic rustic charm of an old school deli. The food is impeccable and lives up to its reputation. Schwartz’s doesn’t try to pretend it’s something it’s not, great no nonsense deli...More

Stopped in for lunch & was very glad we did. Heard about this place, but having been to Katz's in NY, we didn't know how it would compare...the sandwiches were perfect, melt-in-your-mouth pastrami. Don't get fancy, just get the original & you can't go wrong....More
