  1. Celtic Cottage in Long Branch has a pretty nice corned beef sandwich.

        Depends were you live, Fred & Murrays in Manalapan/Freehold area is ok. Nothing around is as good as what I grew up on but his is not bad.

      2. Is Deli King of Linden still around? I know Larry's/Plainfield closed...

        Also, Lox Stock & Deli in Milltown (South Jersey)

          YEs the Linden place is still there but rather dirty

          Deli King in CLark is much better

        2. Hands down the best is Irv's Deli in Neptune on Hwy 33, across from the hospital. They are sooo good and really thick.Yumm!!!

              Barbarella & cantkick,

              Thanks for the mention, I drive by Irv's all the time but will now make it a point to stop in for lunch sometime soon.

          1. Irv and Karens on route 88 Brick NJ is the best in the area. Irv was the original owner of Irv's in Neptune serving great Pastrami and Corned beef sandwiches for years. I remember eating their almost 50 years ago. A "Shore Special" which is their specialty item is one of the best sandwiches I have ever ate.
