So excited and satisfied in discovering this delicious pastrami deli NY style! Shared the skyscraper (half pastrami + half corn beef) on rye bread! Came in huge stacks of juicy tender meat! Definitely great for sharing. The steak fries were hot, crispy, and just out of this world yummy!!! It's a bit pricey but definitely a treat. I think Tommy... More

I had a hankering for corned beef and pastrami. Tommy did not disappoint. Great Deli meat, cole slaw, knish and sour pickles. Best in Orange county.

You will find the eponymous Tommy behind the counter and he will make you feel like a local. Very good pastrami, lean and well seasoned, served on house made rye, mustard on the tables, dill pickles with serious crunch. Interesting potato salad with olives, eggs, pimentos and outstanding cole slaw. A bit pricey but worth it.

This place has the best pastrami and corned beef sandwiches. They explained the difference to me at one point, which I promptly forgot. But I do remember that they are both great! Skip the celery soda. Yuck. They have a line of in-bottle sodas, some of which are better than others. They keep big bottles of deli mustard on the... More

I bet Donald Trump wished he could make a stellar sandwich shop like this, but he hasn't ... The owner Tommy makes by far the best pastrami sandwiches outside of NYC on the most scrumptious NY Double-Baked Rye you'll ever taste. I won't vote for 'The Donald', but I'll always vote for 'Tommy' Pastrami. FIVE CLAWS UP!!!!! Thanks. Joe the... More

I've been wanting to try a NY pastrami sandwich for a long time. Every time I watch the Food network or the Travel Channel regarding the best sandwiches, the NY pastrami is always in the top 10. Since going to Tommy's, I can see why. Incredible sandwich and I'll be coming back for more in the near future.

This place for those who want to eat stomach full at a cheap rate. I don't know what these guys are made up of. After finishing one casual lunch of theirs I never wanted to have any food for the whole day. Good quality, still cheap food.
