This place is amazing, we tried to get there before closing but didn't realize just how popular they are but most importantly that they would run out of corned beef. Lucky for us they had enough for 1 sandwich. Needless to say when it was prepared we were glad we only bought one. The employees were very nice, they knew... More

The place to go in Cleveland for a corned beef sandwich. Extremely casual and very popular. Well worth the wait.

best corned beef in town stacked high, enough to make multiple sandwiches. St. Patrick's day, the line goes way down the road starting early morning thru afternoon. Never had anything bad from here & there are multiple locations now.

I love this place. I love Slyman's so much that when I go on road trips to visit my friends back in Arkansas I bring them corned beef. To be fair, they ask for it. Of all the things I could bring across the country from Ohio, my friends want Slyman's corned beef. It's worth sharing. I recommend getting one... More

The corned beef is sliced so thin it loses all it's moisture and juice, it falls apart into crumbles and resembles saw dust with the same dryness. We choked trying to swallow every bit, finally we all threw it away. If the portions are measured then why can't they slice it thicker upon request? It's because they don't cook it... More

Unbelievable! Really--- this is a one of a kind experience --- corn beef like you've never seen or tasted before!! Great "deli" atmosphere with a staff that are like long lost friends. Get there before 11:30AM or after 1:30PM or be prepared to wait in line for a seat or sandwich (really... it's worth the wait.
