We picked up a tray comprised of tuna salad, lox, eggs, onions, cottage cheese, bagels, rolls and smoked whitefish for ten people. The platter was ready ahead of schedule, and the gentleman carried it to out vehicle. Food was fresh and flavorful. Out family and guests enjoyed it.

Star Deli is strictly take out, but the sandwiches are made to order, the service is so quick you almost can't believe your sandwich is done already and the people working there are awesome. Don't forget to add a slice of their NY style cheesecake. If you like NY style, you won't be disappointed. I keep this place on speed... More

I ADORE Star Deli. They have great corned beef and pastrami, the freshest rye bread, great pickles, good lox and smoked fish, great egg salad. You can get their huge sandwiches or purchase deli items by the pound. Did I mention hard salami? Their traditional Jewish baked goods are yummy too: Seven Layer Cake, sour cream coffee cake, big cookies,... More

I've been a regular at Star Deli since the early 1980's when a co-worker took me there. (I was working nearby.) I changed jobs and moved away.... but still drop in several times a month when business takes me nearby. Their corned beef and pastrami are to DIE FOR!!! One of my co-workers in the 1970's taught me about "real"... More

Corned beef sandwich and coleslaw were Good. Cheesecake was really good. Shouldn't have bought the cherry sauce though. I prefer just the taste of the cheesecake

Heaven. That's the best way to describe the corned beef and lox I bought. Rye bread was amazing too. If you're looking for a quality old school Jewish deli, definitely stop by this place. It may be a hole in the wall, don't let that fool you. Pricey, but worth it.

First off this might be the best corned beef sandwich in the state of Michigan period. Growing up in New York where the delicatessen was everywhere, this place is the real deal... I moved to Michigan in 1998, found this place in 99 and will drive four hours to get a sandwich, everything from the bead to the Cole slaw... More

Here in Southern Nevada, rye bread is basically white bread colored a light brown. Star has the real thing... twice baked, hand sliced, wrapped in paper. That's why I always stop by Star to buy 4 or 5 loaves to bring back with me. TSA probably wonders what I'm up to :)

This is clearly one of the best deli's around, with prices to match. $13/lb for salami, are you kidding? Great corned beef and great fresh rye, their food is excellent, but their pricing is theft. Their pastrami, however, is sub par, but their smoked Sable is amazing.
