Based on about a half-dozen visits, food varies, but never better than mediocre. The food may vary in quality, but it's always expensive. But anyway, it's kosher.

They may have good food, but the prices are down right outrageous. From the meals to the sides, the prices are not worth the food in any way. Sandwiches that cost $15 here should go for half that. Stay Away unless you like to carelessly waste money.

Rubins is known locally for its excellent deli foodold-fashioned NY-style with large portions served in a casual atmosphere. Over the last few years the menu has expanded to include wraps, veggie options, upscale fish dishes, etc. Prices have increased somewhat, but I don't know that it's any more than comparable restaurants. (And kosher restaurants are typically more expensive than their non-kosher versions.) Wraps are creative, with excellent sauces. I particularly like the Thai wrap with grilled chicken in spicy peanut sauce or the BBQ brisket wrap stuffed plentifully with warm thinly sliced brisket in a slightly sweet and tangy sauce. If you haven't tried Rubins in awhile, or if you think it's just for a great pastrami sandwich, try it again.

If you are a lover of old-style deli, this is a fine example of the genre. The food strikes me as "old fashioned" in that it is the food of my childhood in New York: meat, knishes, pickles...high fat, high salt, high flavor, good breads. Not for the health-conscious - or at least not as regular fare. But, if you want to eat hearty, in a truly Jewish - flashig - way, this is the best place to do it within 100 miles. Stick with the standards to start - corned beef, brisket, knishes, soup, Rubin sandwich. Everything deli is great. Don't bother with dessert - pareve desserts just don't cut it!
