Irv's Deli & Restaurant - Neptune

Can anyone provide provide an opinion on their corn beef, pastrami and brisket of beef sandwiches? Also how about their breakfast offerings? Thanks much !

  1. Very tasty pastrami. A little fattier than most places, especially those that are so lean and dried out that you need to add mustard just for moisture, but that's what makes it stand out. Not a huge sandwich, but adequate.

    1. I like their pastrami, and only Richards is in their league in the area, but their brisket is their best sandwich. Worth going out of your way for.

      1. Gave Irv's a try today based on the above and really enjoyed it. My wife and I split 2 sandwiches and both were great. The brisket as mentioned above is fantastic. It was one of the best I've had. We also tried the turkey which was excellent as well. Skip the matzo ball soup though.

        We will be returning soon to try the corned beef and pastrami. (If I can force myself to not order the brisket again)
