Ordering at the counter can get hectic but well worth the effort. A variety of sandwiches, bagels and inside the refrigerated case items provide both dining in and take out options. Beverages and specialty items line the shelves and a small number of tables and stools provide dine-in seating. A heated pastrami sandwich with a hot New York or beef... More

Protzel's is a deli the way delis were meant to be. Great selection of items, including outstanding corned beef and pastrami, gefilte fish, chicken soup, chopped liver... I'm getting hungry just writing this. It's casual, friendly, and feels like New York to me. Right here in St. Louis. Or at least, Clayton. Also note: It's a great take-out place. Load... More

Well, what a great little neighborhood deli just a few minutes from downtown Clayton. It's a small deli shop with great deli meats and one of a kind sandwiches. Easy parking, fast friendly service with a smile. I will be back👍👍👍👍

I'm no authority on Jewish delis so I can't make any sweeping proclamations. But I can say they make carry a lot of high quality food that one would find in a Jewish deli so this goyim was satisfied. I did not actually order any of the deli sandwiches here as it was morning and I was looking mostly for... More

The corn beef is fantastic and the owners and family are a joy to deal with. I love all of the pictures of famous people that have frequented the deli. The deli is in a beautiful part of Clayton and you can sit on the side walk and eat or inside or go across the street to a beautiful little... More

In cities around the USA, people (Jewish and not) ask “why isn’t there a good Jewish deli in this city?” A great corned beef sandwich is elusive. A lot of corned beef tastes like ham. Some is thicker and warm and tastes like the kind of corned beef you would eat on St. Patrick's Day. Protzel's is an authentic Jewish... More

I love this Jewish Deli! One of the best in St louis. I could not ask for a better food. I love the Matzo ball soup and the service was impeccable.

A family owned Deli, with great corn beef and pastrami. It is still 1960 @ Protzel's, and that adds to the charm. The owner and his sisters run the place.

We went looking for lox and bagels, something there isn't a lot of in my part of town. I had an everything bagel, and hand-sliced lox. Although I could have enjoyed a few more slices of lox, it was fresh as was the tomato, and the capers and red onions were tasty. We got a Reuben to go, and she... More

Everyone loved their sandwiches, especially the Reubens. The selection of specialty sodas is impressive! To be fair, when our family of 10 shows up, most places are a little slowed down, because we order a lot of food! Great selection, not speedy, but very tasty! Super friendly customer service, too!
