      I haven't lived in the area for over 30 years so names don't mean anything to me. Looking for a place where I can get a good sandwich on a nice roll.

        Coliseum Deli is the best known deli around there, just east across from the Coliseum.

          Jim's Deli at 914 Front Street in Uniondale has been going strong for over 30 yrs. Great sandwich on a good roll.

      2. The Coliseum deli is right next to Hofstra. It's decent, not outstanding. I can't think of anything else in the immediate area.

        1. I wanted to know if you were talking about a kosher deli, or something else. The other kind of deli's that I know of are only take-out, so didn't know if that is what you meant. If you want a kosher deli, there is a Ben's in Carle Place, which is only a few miles north of Hofstra. It is on Old Country Rd. in the Country Glen Shopping Center, diagonally across from Roosevelt Field.

            take out is what I had in mind, but Ben's sounds good as well. Thank you
