I would just add that the wait time for the food to arrive was horrendous, Otherwise, very good place. Will try to go back on a day when all the groupons are not set to expire (which is what I think held up the kitchen).

Hopefully the regular burger is different than the Tuesday burger. It was the most unimpressive part of the meal. Not worth $5. Everything else was great, service was great.

While the food was pretty good except for the lackluster bread of my fiance's Dagwood sandwich, we were a little put off that there was a pretty big hip hop concert happening when we went. I wouldn't usually take issue, but this was at 6pm on a Saturday. We were surprised to see a concert start this early. Once seated in the dining area, it wasn't too bad. Our server was friendly and prompt.

About This Deal

When a sandwich is too big, it can be held together with a toothpick or blended into a purée and spread between two pieces of bread. Keep it together with this Groupon.

About The Jewish Mother Backstage

Since opening in 1974, The Jewish Mother Backstage has hosted the likes of Dave Matthews, Hootie & the Blowfish, and Ice Cube. But despite its famous visitors and the media frenzy surrounding Ice Cube's melting accident, the New York–style deli still maintains a neighborhood atmosphere. Local and regional music acts fill the stage with groovy tunes, and the menu of hearty comfort fare is rooted in tradition, inspired by the owner's own Jewish mother. More than a dozen delicatessen sandwiches boast family names such as the Mother's Son reuben and the Mother's Sailor Friend, a split knockwurst with gooey swiss cheese and pastrami. Aromas of meatloaf fill the eatery at dinner, and breakfast service sates guests' early-morning hunger and desire to crow onstage.
