Eisenberg's Sandwich Shop Reviews & Ratings
It was okay. Food was fine, nothing special. Reasonably fast service. Not somewhere I would recommend to someone though.
Not sure why there are negative reviews here. Good sandwiches at a reasonable price, and an interesting historic environment. If your expectations are reasonable, this place lives up to what it's supposed to be. Check it out for sure.
This is my first restaurant review EVER. I retrieved my google account and re-created a password just to do this. For me: The thrill is gone! Eisenberg's has lost its' appeal. The food, if it's available, isn't what it used to be. Doesn't come close. To add insult to injury. During my last morning visit I wondered why I had to wait for my order as long as I did especially since I phoned it in. I looked down the bar and two Asian women who had separately walked in off the street while I was waiting for my order where seated and eating breakfast. When I got to worked it dawned on me there is a new owner and he is Asian. DONE WITH EISENBERG'S. I must say the woman that works at the register is always PHENOMENAL!
I've been coming here for years. The pastrami is out of this world. It's the place that time forgot. Sit at the counter, grab a milk shake and take a bite into history.
This is the quaint, period place with the quirky sign out front: Sorry, We Are Open! Here opposite the Flatiron Building's west flank is a little-known city treasure: an old-fashioned diner and greasy spoon. The kind of place you thought only existed in old Twilight Zone movies. I ordered a cheeseburger deluxe, and was pleasantly surprised when it arrived on a crisp bed of lettuce with large fresh slices of tomatoes and generous proportions of golden fries. A side mishok filled with sour pickles was thrown in for good measure. There is a fair amount of delectable food, scrumptious dessert and beverage offerings and enough memorabilia posted on the walls to keep your eyes wandering as you eat. There is additional seating in the rear. In an age when nothing is sacred and everything subject to the wrecker's ball it is comforting to know this little gem is a survivor. One final note: posted at the register up front is a small counter sign in vintage italic that reads, in substance: [as a courtesy to our customers, we shall not attempt to settle the bill until you complete your cellphone call]. Great stuff!
