Review: Maxx's Glatt Kosher Deli (Long Beach, NY)

Went there for lunch today. My pastrami burger was terrible - asked for medium-rare and it came back uncooked in the center. It was raw, not rare, and had to be put back on the grill. Worse than that, the pastrami was all shriveled and burned. My guest had the grilled chicken ceasar salad which was generously portioned and presented nicely. My other guest had pastrami on rye. unfortunately, they used shoulder pastrami instead of plate pastrami, but this is common these days. nevertheless, the portion was nice. the sides: sweet potato fries were decent, but the kishka was weak (thin, fell apart and swimming in gravy). Service was fine for lunch and prices were reasonable.

      Shoulder pastrami is much leaner,hence less flavorful esp when steamed.
