The Matzo Ball soup was fantastic - great tasting and warm! Complemented the soup with a half a pastrami sandwich, Both were terrific. My son had the Reuben and that was outstanding as well!

Went here for late breakfast early lunch. Food ok but not especially tasty more substance over style. Female server was a bit miserable and gave the impression she didn't want to be there. Male server was very friendly.
