We went here for a meal after my step moms funeral. There was 14 of us and we all enjoyed what we ordered except my 96 yr old grandmother who ordered a hotdog and said it was burned, but she didnt complain. The server did an excellent job. The Motzoh balls were humongous. I must have ate 10 pickles. I... More

My first but not my last tome at Bens. The service was excellent and corn beef was worth the trip. I will definitely visit Ben's in the future.

We used to go to the Ben's deli in Baldwin, NY, but they closed. This one is newer, brighter, and friendlier than the one that closed in Baldwin. My wife and I shared a turkey sandwich and a pastrami sandwich and we truly enjoyed both. The French fries were served, as we ordered, well done and hot. Pickles and cole... More

Ben's in Greenvale, Ben's in Bayside, Ben's in Garden City, exactly as they should be, 100% consistent in every respect. Food is well served and delicious and while I do on occasion cheat by going to places like Carnegie, there's no substitute for authentic, Ben's Kosher Deli.

Having bronchitis after New Year's Eve made me crave soup! Ben's chicken noodle or mushroom barley definitely warmed me up and made me feel better. Their sandwiches are an overly generous portion of brisket (dipping gravy on the side), pastrami or turkey. Their latkes are crisp & like Grandma made. Always a satisfying and delicious meal.

I've been eating at Ben's all over Long Island for years. Things have changed...food quality and especially portion sizes. I paid over $21 for a 4 x 2 inch piece of dry salmon. Sorry to say this is not the first time. I used to order and was served a nice size piece of moist fish...guess those days are gone!... More

One of the last surviving Jewish Kosher delicatessens left on Long Island. I have not visited this location for a long time; usually eat at either Greenvale or Bayside locations. The same top quality over-stuffed meat sandwiches, great homemade cole slaw and dill pickles (half-sour and garlic), and Dr. Brown's sodas. It is located in a large strip mall at... More

This is a great place to enjoy quality sandwiches and any of their daily specials. The menu has many options for the family ( young to old); and, I really enjoyed the table side of pickles and coleslaw. Everything was fresh and made to orde...we diffinetly will come back again!

All Ben's Kosher Delis offer fine kosher fair but at a premium price. Sadly as time goes on, there are far less kosher delis around, so the few that remain are charging much higher prices and then can now get it (I guess its just supply and demand economics at work). Still for the most part the service is good... More
