The best pastrami sandwich I've ever had. Period. They make it the right way: rye bread, mustard with a pick on the side. Simple and perfect.

I really like the guys who work there too. I only wish they delivered.

They also changed the menu recently, so there are only two sizes for each sandwich, there used to be three. Wish they'd bring back the three-size system.

If you like pastrami, this really is the best sandwich spot in Bed Stuy.
