OMG! You MUST try the original Cuban. It is the best in town. Tried several Cubans at several places and this one is first-rate!. AND it is on crispy Cuban bread. Heard from others that everything is good here, Can't wait to go back for another Cuban - or maybe I'll try the roast beef braised in red wine -... More

I stopped by Big Steins Deli for a quick lunch and was not disappointed. I had the cuban sandwich and enjoyed every bite! The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because the interior of the location could use some work. With that being said, pick up your sandwich and go to the nearby Fossil Park! You will not... More

I have eaten here a couple of times and must say it is a great deli. Food is New York style and nice mix of sandwiches and sides. Very simple interior but pleasant to eat there. Service is a bit eclectic but works for the deli. It can be a little slow when busy but everything made to order so... More

Don't bother. Homemade meatball means the frozen kind you get at the grocery store to these two clowns! So gross. That was a special today for $6.50 but rang up as 8:50 with a can of root beer. They are not good at math as well. The customer in front of me ordered some type of tuna salad and the... More

I had a sandwich here and it wasn't anything great. I had hopes for this place but haven't been back in a year. The restaurant is easy to miss.

I try to eat here whenever in town. Nothing fancy but great New York style sandwiches. Pastrami, corned beef and Cuban sandwiches are superb and the sides are very good. Potatoe salad and slaw. Easy to order and wait staff have a nice personality adding to the "feel" of the place. Always fresh ingredients and they understand how to make... More

I had a regular Italian sandwich. Should be simple, easy and representative of what they make. Left all the bread, stale and crumbly dry. I think Subway likely makes a better sandwich.

The chicken salad was full of pepper, the corned beef special did not have the dressing on it and the bread was stale. The person whop answered the phone, who was also the manager, was very rude. I would never go to the place again or ever recommend it.

If you blink you'd miss the place. We found it from Tripadvisor. Nothing fancy but the subs were GREAT! I had turkey and the wife had a roast beef. Lots to eat! We are from Chicago and were there the week after the Blackhawks beat the Lighting for the Stanley Cup so we expected a less than warm welcome. ;)... More
