Slicing cold cuts and heaping hot pastrami into munchable mounds for more than 30 years, Jack's Deli and Restaurant offers an expansive array of classic deli fare. Retro-deli devotees are sated with a voluminous menu packed with sandwiches, such as the Hot Romanian Pastrami ($8.95) or House Turkey Off the Bone ($8.95), served on rye, wheat, challah, pumpernickel, and more. Credentialed chefs craft a bevy of specialties, such as the Maidlach ($11.95) with nova lox, cream cheese, tuna salad, and whitefish salad served on three mini bagels. Leaving nothing to the imagination, the roasted beef brisket ($10.95) is served open-faced and piping hot, with mashed potatoes and gravy or french fries. The chicken club ($9.95) takes up massive grill real estate with grilled chicken breast and grilled pastrami served on thick, grilled challah. Diners can also have their taste sponges soak up smile-inducing flavors by sampling the stuffed cabbage ($13.95) with fresh ground beef rolled into succulent, young cabbage leaves and bathed in savory sweet-and-sour sauce. With complete disregard for the sun's uncontrollable envy of the moon, breakfast is served all day, offering dishes such as the homemade corned-beef hash ($7.25) with poached eggs.
Kids can also take a well-earned break from filing taxes by digging into the Bubba Special ($6.25), piled high with extra-lean corned beef on rye.
