  1. I love eisenbergs. I always want to order something other than the corned beef and pastrami ruben, and I always fail. It's one of my favorite sandwiches in the city. Their egg salad is supposed to be great, as is the chopped liver. But again, I've only heard this from friends.

    1. re: Spends Rent on Food

      I've had the liver and the tuna. Neither were bad, but neither were good enough that I would come back with better options nearby.

    2. I LOVE their grilled cheese and fries. Think plain ol' buttery white bread and American cheese. Simple and delish.

      1. i go to eisenbergs maybe every 3 weeks. i usually go alone and have their tuna salad on rye with a lime rickey. one of my more pleasurable eating experiences. i just wish they stayed open later.

        1. Corned beef = good
          Pastrami = awesome
          Chk salad = great

          Pass on everything else.

          Atmosphere = still classic

          Very much worth a monthly (or so) lunch just for the above three items though.

          1. They've increased their hours in recent years, and I believe even expanded the menu and added delivery (though maybe the menu and delivery were always there)... They're still there and improved.
